US Grand Prix Tickets for Sale
When it comes to Formula One racing, there is nothing like the United States Grand Prix. It is one of the most exciting races of its time. The US Grand Prix has had many homes over the years. However, what better place than the home of the Indy 500, Indianapolis Indiana.
It was not until 2000 that another United States Grand Prix took place, this time at legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The 2.606-mile infield road course uses approximately one mile of the storied oval, but in a clockwise direction. The crowd at the 2000 race was estimated at over 225,000, perhaps the largest ever in F1 history. Michael Schumacher's win was his second of four straight to end the season as he overtook Mika Hakkinen for his third Championship. In 2001, the race went off less than three weeks after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and many teams and drivers featured special tributes to the US on their cars and helmets. Held in September its first four years, the USGP at Indianapolis has been moved to an early summer date in June of 2004.
