seating banner.pngThe greatest spectacle in racing is less than 100 days away and figuring out the best place to sit can be a challenge. Will it rain? Will it be 90 degrees? Will it be perfect weather? It is almost impossible to predict! Luckily, you now have access to extensive knowledge about each section of the track and what it offers!

There are a few different options that will provide you and your group with relief from the potential sun and rain.

  • Tower Terrace: sitting in the upper rows provide cover from the suites above and also include a great view of the front stretch and Turn 4
  • Paddock and Paddock Penthouse: Almost full coverage from a metal roof above
    • Early in the day there is a chance of some sun because the positioning of the roof but you will still be covered from rain
    • Sitting in the first 16 sections also gives you an unbeatable view of the Yard of Bricks
  • C Stand: the Hulman Terrace Club will provide coverage of the top rows of seating
  • A Stand and Penthouse: Full coverage from the metal roof above
    • The higher you sit the more you can see of the Yard of Bricks and Turn 1
  •  B Stand and Penthouse: the majority of B stand is covered by the Penthouse above
    • sitting higher up gives you a view farther down the front stretch and around Turn 1. You’re also across from Legends Row
  • E Stand Box 1-24 and E Penthouse: this section of the track is arguably the most sought after section. The upper rows are covered by their own metal roofing, and you get an almost birds eye view of Turn 1 and Turn 2.

BEST VIEWS

There’s no true “bad seat” at the track, but there are a few sections that stand out among the crowd as the “best view” in terms of height and overall line of sight for the race.

  • E Penthouse 1-10, Row A
    • This particular seat location is the most sought after and often times the most difficult to come across because ticket-holders renew them year after year
    • You get a head on view of the cars as they come around Turn 1 all the way down to Turn 2
    • Being up this high also gives you a birds eye view of the inside of the track!
  • North East Vista Turn, Rows KK-QQ
    • This location is by far the most under valued. The NE Vista is the equivalent section to E Penthouse, but you see the cars coming into Turn 3 and around to Turn 4 instead
    • The higher the row the more you can see of the track

SNAKE PIT.png

  • North, East, and West Vista
    • A view of Turn 3 or Turn 4
    • Close proximity to Tunnel 10 leading right to Snake Pit inside the track.
  • C Stand and H Stand
    • A view of Turn 4 and the Yard of Bricks
    • Close proximity to Tunnel 7, just a short walk from the Snake Pit.
  • Tower Terrace is located on the inside of the track, so there is no need to find the nearest tunnel!
