INDIANAPOLIS -- How do you get there, and once you get there, where do you park?

It's important information you need to know if you're heading out to the Angie's List Grand Prix on Saturday.

Officials at IMS want you to 'Plan Your Visit' with their new website which includes an event schedule, track map, directions to track and gate regulations, among other things.

PARKING AND ENTRY TO IMS

  • Free parking:  You must enter through Gate 10 and access the facility via 30th Street. You will be directed to North 40 parking. This is the only free parking and is available while space remains.
  • Pedestrian gate entry: Gates 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 South, 9, 10A and 12 are available for pedestrian entry and walk-up cash ticket purchases.
  • Gate 2 & credentialed parking: Gate 2 is not accessible via car without a credentialed parking pass. In addition, if you have a Turn 3 credentialed parking pass, you must enter through Gate 10 and not Gate 2.
