Located in Speedway, IN, Indianapolis Motor Speedway plays host to some of the biggest events in auto racing, including the Indianapolis 500, Brickyard 400, and the Ferrari Challenge Series. Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the largest sporting venue in the world with permanent seating capacity for more than 235,000 people and infield seating that raises capacity to an approximate 400,000. It’s a historically significant track, especially for Ferrari enthusiasts.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway track is 2.5 miles long, and takes the shape of a rectangular oval. It features two ⅝-mile long straightaways, two ⅛-mile long straightaways, and four identical ¼-mile turns. The course is also flat.
Compared to some of the world’s more exotic racetracks, the layout is simplistic — but this allows for the focus to remain on raw driving skill on consistent conditions, making it an ideal track for spectators and racers alike.
Originally scheduled for late April, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway hosted Ferrari challenge races on July 24 – 26, 2020, in addition to two test days before on-track activity started. The weekend consisted of two 30-minute races, along with qualifying rounds and practice laps. All participating racers drove the Ferrari 488 Evo Package.
Due to Covid-19, no spectators were allowed this year.
The Ferrari Challenge is the world’s most famous one-make championship with over 1,000 drivers. The competitive nature of each race is ensured by the division of participants into a given series based on their ability and experience. The event is an exceptional opportunity to see drivers new and old push some of the world’s finest supercars to the limit in the natural habitat of the Prancing Horse: the track.
