Track Infos from Wiki :
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is an automobile racing circuit located in Speedway, Indiana (an enclave suburb of Indianapolis) in the United States. It is the home of the Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard 400, and formerly the home of the United States Grand Prix. It is located on the corner of 16th Street and Georgetown Road, approximately six miles (10 km) west of Downtown Indianapolis.
Constructed in 1909, it is the second purpose-built, banked oval racing circuit after Brooklands and the first to be called a ‘speedway’. It has a permanent seating capacity of 257,325 with infield seating raising the grand total capacity to an approximate 400,000. It is the highest-capacity sports venue in the world.
Considered relatively flat by American standards, the track is a 2.5-mile-long (4.0 km) rectangular oval with dimensions that have remained essentially unchanged since its construction. It has two 5⁄8-mile-long (1,000 m) straightaways, four geometrically identical 1⁄4-mile (400 m) turns, connected by two 1⁄8-mile (200 m) short straightaways, termed “short chutes”, between turns 1 and 2, and between turns 3 and 4.
A modern infield road course was completed in 2000, incorporating part of the oval, including the main stretch and the southeast turn, measuring 2.605 miles (4.192 km). In 2008, and again in 2014, the road course layout was modified to accommodate motorcycle racing, as well as to improve competition. Altogether, the current grounds have expanded from an original 320 acres (1.3 km2) on which the speedway was first built to cover an area of over 559 acres (2.3 km2). Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987, it is the only such site to be affiliated with automotive racing history.
In addition to the Indianapolis 500, the speedway also hosts NASCAR‘s Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400 and Lilly Diabetes 250. From 2000 to 2007, the speedway hosted the Formula One United States Grand Prix, and from 2008 to 2015 the Moto GP.
On the grounds of the speedway is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, which opened in 1956, and houses the Auto Racing Hall of Fame. The museum moved into its current building located in the infield in 1976. Also on the grounds is the Brickyard Crossing Golf Resort, which originally opened as the Speedway Golf Course in 1929. The golf course has 14 holes outside the track, along the backstretch, and four holes in the infield. The speedway also served as the venue for the opening ceremonies for the 1987 Pan American Games.

I want to first thank TTTTT for allowing his initial permission for conversion of his Rfactor track to GTL and GTR2. derDumeklemmer did the most recent conversion to GTL and as always did a fantastic job. He cleaned the track up and removed all of the problems that caused the unstable play in the first GTR2 version. He added the Marshals and animations as well as increased the grid to 36 cars. I added the rain reflections as well as updated the pace car and converted the mas file to gtr2. This version includes the new AIW that adds rolling starts.
– 36 Car Grid
– Working Pace Car
– Marshals and Animations
– Working Rain Reflections
– Working Jumbotron screens and movies
Please review Uwe’s GTL readme to understand the full scope of his work and credit.
There will be one more update to this track after this and then that should make this the definite GTR2 Version. I want to do some minor texture updates as add some small suprises.
This file can be hosted on your site as long as it remains intact and with all the readmes included in its original state. No conversions of this track can be made unless you contact myself and then I will be glad to discuss it with you. Thanks for downloading our track.
