aboutTravel tips for traveling in Indianapolis

Dec 4, 2012 - A real Indy experience

Traveling to Indiana by charter bus or party bus with Charter Bus Indiana is always an enjoyable journey that takes you through one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States. Without a smidgen of doubt, using a rented charter bus in Indianapolis means that you are going to be able to see more, eat more, experience more, do more and simply enjoy more of what amazing Indianapolis has to offer to charter bus tour visitors like yourself.

While this capital city is soaring into the 21st century, it is also steeped in history. Since the 1900s, Indianapolis has become synonymous with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which hosts the famed Indy 500 and the Brickyard 500.

The historic circuit is also home to various other activities that are very much worth traveling all the way to Indianapolis to experience in a charter bus. In addition to watching the on-track action, visitors can also experience the on track experiences offered by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The Indy Racing Experience Driving Program gives each participant the chance to receive instruction from the highly trained instructors before suiting up and feeling the actual adrenalin rush of piloting a real IZOD IndyCar Series car that has competed in an actual Indianapolis 500 race and follow a lead IZOD IndyCar Series car around the fabled Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Actual speeds achieved are dependent upon each participant’s comfort level in the car but from inside the helmet, you’d swear you’re in an actual race challenging Dario Franchitti in the car in front for the lead!

For those of you who’d rather be driven by a charter bus driver than drive, the Indy Racing Experience Two-Seat Ride allows you to experience all the speeds and g-forces previously experienced only by some of the world’s best motorsport racers.

For that undeniable adrenaline rush, charter bus rental vacation-goers can become participants when they take the chance to sit behind the driver in a purpose-built Dallara chassis that besides that one small modification to allow an extra seat is a true IZOD IndyCar Series car complete with an authentic racing engine that can power the car up to 180 mph.

Licensed teens who would like to improve their driving, can also experience a special instructional program called the Miles Ahead Teen Driving Intensive that is held exclusively at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Similar to a sports camp, where new skills are practiced and honed, without the risk of injury or collision, classes are taught by professional race-car drivers from the Mazda Road to Indy and the IZOD IndyCar Series, where teen drivers receive professional, behind-the-wheel training in order to be better prepared for the hazards of driving on public roads.

Rest assured, the charter bus drivers provided by Charter Bus Indiana are highly trained but might not make your journey as brisk, but will be just as enjoyable.
