MotoGP: Indy Directions / I-465 Closure

Indy Grand Prix

Fans attending the Red Bull Indianapolis GP, round 11 of the 2010 MotoGP Championship, should plan their route to Indianapolis Motor Speedway around a key highway exit closure on Indianapolis’ west side.

The southbound Interstate 465 exit to Crawfordsville Road (southbound Exit 16A) is closed for the remainder of 2010 as part of a major reconstruction of I-465. This traditionally has been a popular exit for fans heading to the Speedway from points north and northwest of IMS.

For 2010 Red Bull Indianapolis GP activities, fans traveling southbound on I-465 should use the 38th Street exit (Exit 17), located one mile north of Crawfordsville Road, and proceed east following signage toward the track.

The Indiana State Police advises spectators to visit its website, in.gov/isp, to receive information on the most direct routes to take when arriving and leaving the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Road conditions and construction updates also can be found at the site.

Free motorcycle parking is available inside IMS on the backstretch of the oval for Red Bull Indianapolis GP fans, accessible through Gate 10. Limited infield automobile parking is available for the public inside Turn 3, also accessible through Gate 10.

Parking and camping also are available in all lots outside of the track.

More motorcycle and automobile parking, camping and additional information can be found at indianapolismotorspeedway.com/redbullindianapolisgp/ and by clicking on the "Event Information" banner on the top of the page.

On Red Bull Indianapolis GP Race Day, Sunday, Aug. 29, public gates open at 7 a.m., and track activity begins with the 125cc warm-up at 8:40 a.m.
