The Month of May is 30 day celebration in Indianapolis that climaxes with the Indianapolis 500 in Memorial Day Weekend. The 100 year plus tradition attracts numbers in the six figures to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and produces an atmosphere unlike anything else at a major sporting event.
The Grand Prix in Detroit has gone through several iterations over the years, and the latest is a brilliant mix of speed and excitement. The circuit is located on stunning Belle Isle in Detroit – the event’s location in America’s home of the automobile is perfect for helping connect the product on track to the cars you drive every day.
Despite the best efforts of the track’s neighbors, Lime Rock Park is a historic and popular racing facility hidden away in north-western Connecticut.

Formula 1, the world’s premier racing series, could be racing through the streets of downtown Miami as soon as 2019. The Miami City commission will meet on May 10th, and part of the discussion on the schedule is on a potential F1 race through the streets of South Florida. If the bid’s vote is approved, the Miami City Manager will then be tasked with forming a contract between Formula 1 and Miami.
All-Tech Raceway has been around for a while, having opened in 1974 as a short track. Recently the track was sold and converted to a dirt track, which has changed the experience at All-Tech Raceway, but at the same time, the track has remained the family friendly environment it has always sought to be. A trip to this track half an hour north of Gainesville, Florida makes it plain to see why locals flock here every weekend.
As if to blast the stereotype of everything being bigger in Texas into flat-out appropriateness, Circuit of the Americas (often called COTA for short) in Austin provides no better example of this. Indeed, the site of the annual US Grand Prix for Formula One is also the host to a myriad of other races throughout the year, including the season opening weekend for Pirelli World Challenge, a stop for World Superbikes, and the Trans-Am series, just to name a few.
