Incredible. It looks like a six year old’s rendition of what a cool race car looks like. I lost my poo poo at the slow-motion replay of their own car ending its maiden test run in the most hilarious fashion.

In the off chance anyone here hasn't seen it already, IMS is limiting attendance to 50% for the 500. Relevant bits from the email they sent:

quote:

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Aug. 23 for the 104th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. While our racetrack has remained quiet, our work to enhance the venue has continued at INDYCAR speed, and we are excited for you to see all of the improvements.

Understanding how important the 500 is to our fans and our community, we have worked tirelessly to overcome the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. After continued consultation with local and state health officials, along with feedback from fans like you, we are committed to running the Indy 500 as scheduled and with spectators in our stands. To do so, we will implement enhanced health and safety measures across nearly all facets of our August events. One key pillar of our plan is to realign seating to allow for more space between customers on Race Day.

Consistent with CDC guidelines, we encourage customers who are 65 and older or have underlying medical conditions to consider staying home. For those fans attending the race, we will provide masks and hand sanitizer and we recommend their use. We will provide more information on additional health and safety measures in the coming weeks.

As a current Indy 500 ticketholder, IMS expects to be able to accommodate at least 50% of your original ticket quantity in or near your current seating location. We welcome requests for more than 50% of your original order size, though ticket quantities of greater than 50% may be moved to another available location.

Please log in to your account at IMS.com by Monday, July 6 to let us know how many tickets you would like to request, up to the size of your original order. If you have questions or need assistance completing the online form, please call the IMS Ticket Office at 317-492-6700 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

If you choose not to retain some or all of your current order, you will receive an IMS account credit good for other IMS events, including 2020 practice, qualifying and Miller Lite Carb Day, the INDYCAR Harvest GP or your 2021 Indy 500 renewal.

New Indy 500 Race Day tickets will be issued to all customers for the rescheduled Indy 500. If you have already received your original Indy 500 Race Day tickets, you may keep them, but they will not be valid for entry. If you have already received your Indy 500 Race Day parking and camping passes, please retain these for use for the rescheduled Indy 500.

Importantly, your decision will not impact your seniority or right to renew your tickets for the 105th Running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 30, 2021.

You must log in to your account at IMS.com and make your selections by Monday, July 6. If you do not log in and make your selections, your ticket order may be reduced by as much as 50%, and your new seats will be assigned in or near your current location. An account credit will be issued for the number of tickets removed from your order, and new tickets will be mailed to your address on record in early August.

While we are pleased to be able to welcome you back to the newly improved and enhanced Speedway for this year’s 500, we regret the inconvenience associated with these changes and appreciate your patience and support as we all continue to navigate these unprecedented times. Please visit IMS.com/COVID19 for additional information, FAQs and to contact us with any questions or concerns.

I turned mine in. First time I won't be at the 500 since 2006, but I like breathing without mechanical assistance more than I like Back Home Again.

HIT IT VERY HARD


I tried to reach out to Laguna Seca and didn't hear back, but it appears they are selling fan tickets for the weekend like nothing is wrong. Anyone have any insight there? I had a blast last year and would like to go back, especially since it seems pretty easy to space out there, but not sure what their status might be.

I don’t think we’ll see the 500 run in August with fans. No sports have run with any kind of crowd that size until now (NASCAR had 5,000 at Talladega), and I know they want a crowd in there but it would be really really irresponsible.

Not sure we’re gonna see crowds of any size until 2021.

Nascar is going to run the all star at Bristol with 30k, sebring is allowing a limited number in 2 weeks also. We've basically just accepted everyone dying.

He’s retiring from NASCAR this year and has spoken in months past about wanting to give Indy road course racing a try in 2021 so I think it’s legit

edit: so about that test
