Since 1911 it has taken place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, known as ‘The Racing Capital of the World’. The Indy 500 race is all about celebrating the history of good old fashioned motorsport and ‘should be on every racing fans to-do list’.

For the 2018 Indy 500 we are offering a 4-night package staying at the Hampton Inn located in the centre of downtown Indianapolis, together with an optional extension to New York for 3 nights - a great combination we think! 

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby dishing up traditional American food at great value prices. Alternatively, if you fancy something more formal, Indy has over 200 restaurants to choose from serving delicious cuisine from around the world.

The city comes alive after dark with hundreds of places for ‘good times and good conversation’. Some of the popular bars include Jazz kitchen, Cadillac ranch and Nicky Blaine’s.

Thank you to Debbie and Tessa for looking after us at Indy 500. It was very well organised and Debbie went above and beyond to check our homeward flight as we had problems checking in online, even though she was travelling home herself. Also thanks to Mel for all the help in booking and answering any questions we had. We would not hesitate to use Grandstand again and would certainly recommend. Thanks once again it was awesome!

Thank you for organising a wonderful trip for the both of us to the Indy500. We were excited before we got on the plane, but the trip exceeded our expectations. Tessa the courier was very organised and bus dropped us off opposite the track and the police escort was an amazing experience, but the highlight was getting so close to the cars, walking through the pits, you could touch the tyres and talk to the mechanics - a dream trip. A definate trip we will be doing again. Thank you so much, hopefully Budapest will equally be as good.
