You know the stat: the Indianapolis 500 is the biggest single-day, single-venue spectator event in the world. And for the 300,000-plus race fans who'll be on the hallowed grounds of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for Race Day (Sunday, May 30), plus the many thousands more attending two weeks of practice and qualifying, there's now a state-of-the-digital-art Guest Guide to help make the experience truly memorable.
The 2010 Indianapolis 500 Guest Guide contains all the information you'll need to maximize the enjoyment and minimize the hassle of the “Month of May.” Want to know the best routes in on Race Day? Or what time gates open on Bump Day? Or when ZZ Top is set to rock Miller Lite Carb Day? It's all in there, and much, much more, in an easy to use, fully interactive online format.
The 18-page Guest Guide is packed with essential information, including complete Month of May schedules (starting with the May 8 Centennial Era Balloon Festival), gate and stand openings, traffic and parking information, vendor locations, city maps and info, and more. Much of the information is printer friendly and downloadable at the click of a button, and there are numerous useful links to websites and to the IMS ticket site, too.
As well as the need-to-know stuff, there's plenty of fun things to check out and do, like choosing your own cover from five options. Look out, too, for videos of the 2009 Indianapolis 500, and a recap of Helio Castroneves' three Indy victories as he looks to join the exclusive club of four-time “500” winners. And eight photo galleries bring you all the sights of the Brickyard, including Pole Day, Carb Day and Race Day highlights and atmosphere, plus action from the 2009 Brickyard 400 and Red Bull Indianapolis GP.
The 2010 Indianapolis 500 Guest Guide is online now. Access it by clicking here, or check it out via indianapolismotorspeedway.com, the official site of everything Brickyard.
