The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has announced it will build a new premium viewing area outside Turn 3 that will offer an all-inclusive race day experience for the 102nd Indianapolis 500.
The Turn 3 Club is being offered in response to increased demand for premium seating and hospitality at IMS. Suites are sold out for Indianapolis 500 race day, while limited availability remains in the Hulman Terrace Club. The Speedway says hospitality and premium sales are well ahead of the pace from 2017, with demand mirroring that from the 100th Running in 2016, while demand for reserved seats also is stronger than last year.
“The Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil continues in its second century to show its strength as the world’s greatest spectator sporting event,” IMS President Doug Boles said. “Demand for this year’s race is very strong, with suites sold out and ticket sales continuing to outpace last year. Adding the Turn 3 Club as a new way to experience the Indy 500 gives another option for our fans who want that traditional race experience with more than just a grandstand seat.”
The Turn 3 Club will provide these amenities:
• Spectacular views of the track from an elevated Turn 3 location
• Pairing with a Reserved Seat in the North Vista for each customer
• All-inclusive food, beer and wine, with liquor available for purchase
• Tented deck area with tables and limited seating
• Parking passes in the North 40 Lot, with one pass for every four tickets purchased
• Souvenir event program for each customer
• Dedicated restroom facilities
• Live TV and audio feed
Tickets to the Turn 3 Club are $750 each. Existing Indianapolis 500 race day ticket holders can upgrade to the Turn 3 Club for $700 each.
The Speedway says that prices will increase closer to May, so interested parties are encouraged to purchase soon at www.ims.com/turn3club or the IMS Ticket Office.
