INDIANAPOLIS, Monday, Sept. 24, 2001 - Fans attending the SAP United States Grand Prix are encouraged to leave their home or hotel early to come to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for practice, qualifications, and especially Race Day.

Fans are urged to follow the directions of law-enforcement personnel who will direct traffic onto the best and fastest routes to Speedway parking.

There is no parking available inside the Speedway for this event. However, parking is available in the "North 40" lot just north of the track off 30th Street. On practice and qualifying days, each person in the vehicle must pay gate admission in order to park in the lot. Friday's practice day is $10 per person, while Saturday's qualifying day is $20, and a two-day combo ticket is available for $25. On Race Day, each person in the vehicle must have a Race Day ticket to park in the North 40.

Adequate parking is also available in the Speedway's Lot 1, which is immediately adjacent to the northwest corner of the Speedway at 25th Street and Georgetown Road. Parking is $20 per day, or a four-day event package can be purchased in advance for $50 for automobiles and $100 for motorhomes by calling the ticket office at (317) 484-6700.

Other available lots are on Georgetown Road, as well as Lot 3 along 16th Street. In addition, parking is available at private residences in the Town of Speedway, usually for a fee.

On Race Day, fans are encouraged to travel the IndyGo public transit services, which leave from the Airport and downtown Indianapolis on a regular basis. More information can be obtained by calling IndyGo at (317) 635-3344, or on the IndyGo Web site, www.indygo.net.
