The newly relocated Turn 11 Fan Hospitality not only includes complimentary continental breakfast, lunch buffet, snack food, beverages, and driver Q&A’s but does it all trackside – that’s right TRACKSIDE! The Q&A sessions will feature some of the biggest names in the IZOD IndyCar Series such as the father/son combo of Michael and Marco Andretti and 2010 Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti will all make appearances. The new deadline for fans to make their purchase is now Friday, June 25 and can be added to any package for only $50 per person.
Turn 11 Fan Hospitality provides some of the best seats in the house and a memorable experience for a great value. There is almost no better way to get close to the action than sitting trackside inside Turn 11 and being able to watch the hard racing around the rest of the race track on closed-circuit TVs. Fans can also escape the sun in the shaded hospitality tent while they enjoy an all-you-can-eat continental breakfast, buffet-style picnic lunch, and unlimited Pepsi products and water, snack foods, and Budweiser beer. The Fan Hospitality area will open at 8:00 AM on Sunday, July 4 providing great views for the F-2000 Championship Series race at 11:00 AM and Corning 100 Firestone Indy Lights race at 1:30 PM. Lunch will be finished prior to the start of the Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen at 3:30 PM allowing them plenty of time to get to their seats. However, fans will be welcome to stay in the hospitality area enjoying complimentary beverages and the closed-circuit TVs until one hour after the checkered flag.
