Home to the Indy 500, the Brickyard 400 and the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix, Indianapolis is one of the most renowned motorsports cities in America, and its heart is the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Despite Indy having a long and fruitful existence of over a century in racing, it is a relative newcomer to the Grand Prix motorcycle-racing season, with the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix returning for only its sixth successive year. Before the advent of the Indianapolis MotoGP in 2008, it had been nearly a century since bikes had raced around the famous Brickyard. The bikes race on a similar layout to the one used for the F1 US Grand Prix -- running anti-clockwise on a 16-turn, 2.621-mile road circuit that incorporates part of the Speedway’s famous oval.
