IMS Project Underway for Grand Prix

A $5 million reconfiguration project underway on the existing Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course will transform the layout with more speed and more hard braking zones to create more passing and competitive racing for the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis on May 8-10, 2014.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway officials unveiled details about the first IndyCar Series road race at the historic venue during a media conference Oct. 1 at the Speedway.

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, new infield chicane that will comprise Turns 5 and 6 and lead to the 2,500-foot back straightaway.
