Tickets sales at Indianapolis

THE well-known American motorsports writer Brock Yates last week mentioned in his column that he had heard that advance ticket sales for the United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis were "in the dumper."

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has since responded saying that the Speedway is expecting to match the 200,000 people who turned up for last year's big race. The attendance last year was down from the 220,000 in the first year but the Speedway reckons that this was due to the race taking place just a few weeks after the September 11 attacks which meant that the number of foreign visitors was considerably down on the 2000 event.

Yates has responded saying that his informer at the Speedway says that things are not that rosy. With five months to go before the event it may be a little early to say for certain.
