Due to the longevity of the Indianapolis 500, numerous traditions surrounding the race have developed over the years.
Indianapolis 500: The Simulation is a 1989 computer game. It was hailed as the first step of differentiating racing games from the arcade realm and into racing simulation.
Among the world’s most well-known races, the Indianapolis 500 is called The Finest Spectacle in Racing, and draws in as much as 400,000 visitors for optimum time races. The race operates on the 2.5 mile circuit, for 200 laps – adding up to an astonishing 500 mile (therefore, the title)
indy cars and F1 cars are not the same, no. the indy car series, or IRL, is an american series run by tony george, who owns indianapolis motor speedway. they run mostly ovals, like NASCAR. formula 1 is a european based series with far more expensive cars. they run road courses exclusivly, and the US grand prix in indianapolis is the only F1 race held in the US.
Indianapolis 500 Poll?
The Indy 500 is a fight to the finish. Takuma Sato even knew his move was risky, but when you're down to the last lap you'll do whatever you can to come out on top. It was a risk Sato took, and just so happen it didn't go well. You can't sit here and tell me that if the roles were reversed, and Dario was in Sato's position that he wouldn't have went for that move himself. He would've been doing the same thing most likely, because exactly like Sato he wanted to win. So no it wasn't a dirty move. It was a strategicic move on Dario's part. Yes, it would've been nice for Sato to win. Not only would it have been unexpected, but it also would've been an historic moment for him as well by being the first Japanese driver to ever win the Indy 500 if he would've won. I love Dario, and I'm happy that he won, but honestly I was hoping to see a fresh face win the race, and after seeing how good Sato moved up to the top I started rooting for him to win. The best man won the race, and that's all that is to it.
Lyrics to the Indianapolis 500 theme song "The Five Hundred"?
Over the horizon on Memorial Day
The sun shows its face
People come from everywhere
To witness the greatest race
In the pits, mechanics tune the motors
Gettin' ready for the fight
Gentlemen, start your engines
The green flag is down
Cheers and banners fill the air
Together with the smell of burnin' gasoline
Everybody on your feet to welcome
The ferocious machines
33 warriors in their chariots
Go out into the battlefield
33 shiny helmets
Take command of the wheel
Flashing color turbos bite into the ground
Along the straightaway
Fearless men dream to be the winners
On this glorious day
500 miles to the checkered flag to show the bravery
500 miles to the finish line to victory
