The jewel of the season is the Indianapolis 500 which takes place at the end of May each year. Past winners are a ‘Who’s Who’ of racing’s elite, with names like A.J. Foyt, Al and Bobby Unser, Mario Andretti, Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart and Emerson Fittipaldi. More recent champions include Brazil’s Helio Castroneves, England’s Dan Wheldon, New Zealand’s Scott Dixon, Scotland’s Dario Franchitti & last years winner Alexander Rossi.
The Indy 500 is undoubtedly one of motor sports elite races and delivers some of the most exciting wheel to wheel racing to be found anywhere. With an attendance of over 300,000 to the single race you can see why the Indy500 is such a spectacle.
