As the world prepares for the 2021 Indycar season, there is much to look forward to. The racing season is set to begin after Labor Day and run until the second week of May. There will be two more weeks of non-televised races before the season concludes with the Indy finale. In addition, there will be an annual off-season celebration, bringing together drivers, teams, and fans from all the different parts of the world. Here is a closer look at what is in store for the race.
Throughout the year there are a number of special events. In April the Tex-Mex Grand Prix features a number of prominent Mexican celebrities and it is held at the Mexico City International Airport. Besides this, there is a large race series in June. This series pits drivers from throughout Mexico against each other in an effort to win the championship.
After Mexico, there is a trip to Brazil for the Formula One Brasileiro event. Brazilian driver Sage Karamdam takes part in the contest while Ryan Hunter competes in the premier open-wheel racing event in the world. In August the IndyCar season concludes with the Sonoma Raceway Pro Series. There is a doubleheader with action from both the European Touring Car Championship and the America Touring Car Championship. Another highlight is the Petit Le Man’s finale. There will be no other motorsports on the schedule that is as packed as the Sonoma event.
During the off-season, there are a number of other events happening in the region. For example, the Texas Motor Speedway is hosting a race replete with names such as Chevrolet, Honda, and Mazda. There is also the Tex-Mex Garage show, featuring many of the area’s top racing cars. The venue has also announced plans to host an IndyCar race at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
After the conclusion of the European Touring Car Championship in the UK, the Indy series will move north to the United States. The first race will be the GoPro Grand Prix in Las Vegas. Las Vegas is synonymous with racing and the sponsorship money makes it a great locale for a race. With such a large crowd and the addition of sponsors, it is easy to see why Vegas is lining up to host the 2021 Indy season.
Another race in the pipeline is the Toyota ARX-SE Motorcycle Grand Prix at the new venue. While no track has been finalized there is still much speculation that the race may be placed in the existing Honda Motorsports Park. While there are tickets going for as low as just fifty dollars it would still be a big draw for the race fans.
In early May the entire season will get underway with the Indy Fest event. It will be held at the Alamodin Motorsports Park in New Mexico. There will also be other events during the month including youth races, concerts, festivals, and film events. It will be an ideal time to get out and about and enjoy what the future may hold for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
For those who are interested in attending the races in the future, keep your eyes open for any updates on where they are being held. As it stands right now the current plan is to have them spread out over the entire season. That should mean that you will be able to attend most of them.
For those that are still not sure what the future holds for Indianapolis Motor Speedway, it would probably be best to wait. Many people get very attached to the place and their passion for racing takes precedence over anything else. Others may make money betting on the races but have no interest in actually being there. Then there are others that have been coming to the races for years and take pleasure in the atmosphere and the challenges that present themselves.
So what is the point of traveling to a racing facility if you can’t even watch it in its entirety? Just think about it for a moment. A huge portion of the Indianapolis economy is dependent upon the income generated from racing and the only way to ensure that income doesn’t wane is to ensure that people are visiting all year round. The tickets alone generate close to six million dollars in income every single weekend. This means that without the racing there would be very little income from the stadium. Of course, the weather would be perfect for some of the racing but this would mean fewer visitors which would, in turn, impact the racing program and consequently the quality of it.
There is an opportunity that has presented itself to help alleviate all these problems and the best way to do this is by having a racing program that is continually upgraded. In order to do this, a television station must invest in a proper technology package and then promote this with the help of sponsors. For those that are in the know, the races at the wormhole are often viewed by many television viewers so advertising on these stations would only help increase interest in the sport as well as bring more viewers to the races. As you can see, the future of Pacers Basketball is bright as the team gears up for their first season in Indiana.
