One of the biggest motorsport events of the year is here, the Indy 500. A field of 33 cars will battle it out at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, going wheel to wheel at over 220mph in a bid to win the 107th edition of America’s most famous race.
Some say winning the Indy 500 is as significant as winning the IndyCar title, which underlines how important success in the 500-mile race is.
Former F1 driver Marcus Ericsson will look to become the first driver since Helio Castroneves in 2002 to perform the event tradition of drinking milk in victory lane in successive years.
Ericsson held off McLaren’s Pato O’Ward in an epic battle last year and both drivers are set to be contenders once again.

Josef Newgarden, Scott McLaughlin, Scott Dixon, Alex Palou, Will Power, Colton Herta and Alexander Rossi will be among leading names to look out for throughout the event.
