Whether they’re into antique, muscle, luxury, or vintage vehicles, car lovers around the world can definitely agree on one thing: the need for speed! This passion for fast cars is taken to a whole new level in one of the newest Indianapolis attractions, the Dallara IndyCar Factory.
The IndyCar Factory is a joint venture between Dallara Automobili, an Italian company which designs and manufactures race cars for many different auto racing events, and the Indy Racing Experience, which lets fans take a spin on the speedway in a two-seater IndyCar. At the Dallara IndyCar Factory, you can catch a glimpse of how race cars are made in their factory tours, as well as check out the different exhibits detailing the technology used in these cars. Many different cars are also on display, and you can get your picture professionally taken behind the wheel to impress your family and friends! Another visitor favorite would have to be the racing simulators, which allow the “driver” to test out his skills on the Indy 500 track.
The crown jewel of this experience, however, would have to be the IndyCar 2 Seater rides! This unique race car is equipped with all the gear (headlights, turn signals, etc.) to make it completely street legal! Guests can pay $30 for a ride in an IndyCar built for two and be driven around Indianapolis in style.
Next time you’re in the Indianapolis area for one of its classic car shows or racing events and feel the need for speed, make sure to stop by the Dallara IndyCar Factory. And if you have your own high performance car, keep it protected with Classic Auto! Our tailored collector car insurance plans cover muscle, vintage, exotic, and luxury cars of all shapes, sizes, and speeds!
