The 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 takes place on Sunday and ahead of the race the Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced on Thursday that next year’s anniversary 100th Indianapolis 500 will take place on Sunday 29 May.
The Indianapolis 500 is along with the Monaco Grand Prix in Formula One and the LeMans 24 Hours World Endurance Championship one of the most prestige motor racing events in the world and the highlight on the Verizon IndyCar Series calendar and is the race that ever IndyCar driver wants to win.
Next year’s anniversary event will also be a historic event as we will see an all-female IndyCar team compete with Katherine Legge driving for the Grace Autosport team.
