DATES

May 7, 2015 to May 9, 2015



The Grand Prix of Indianapolis, the new IndyCar Series event on the reconfigured Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, will jump-start Month of May activities at IMS and build toward the 99th Indianapolis 500 later in the month.

The Month of May will begin with IndyCar Series practice for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis Thursday, May 7 on the new-look, 14-turn, 2.434-mile IMS road course. Practice and qualifying are scheduled for Friday, May 8, with the race Saturday, May 9

All series in the Mazda Road to Indy will compete during the event, placing a singular spotlight on all levels of North American open-wheel racing throughout May at the Racing Capital of the World.

Among the highlights of the 14-turn, 2.434-mile road course:

  • A hard braking area and 90-degree right into Turn 1 exiting the historic front straightaway of the oval.
  • A fast infield chicane that will comprise Turns 5 and 6 and lead to the back straightaway.
  • A revision of the Turns 7-8-9 complex that will create more speed and passing.
  • A hard braking area creating excellent passing opportunities leading into the new 90-degree right Turn 12, which enters the infield adjacent to Turn 1 of the oval and rejoins the main straightaway at Turn 14.
