Tips for Race Fans on Coping with a Postponed Indy 500

For race fans, living at the Wilshaw Apartments is the ultimate luxury – you get a stunning apartment, just across the street from Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This year, however, May was unusually quiet in Speedway, as The Indianapolis 500 was postponed to Aug. 23. If you’re feeling disappointed about the postponed race and associated events, we’ve got some tips on how to make the most of things this summer and keep yourself busy until the race.

Try Virtual Racing

To no one’s surprise, sales of video game consoles have increased dramatically in recent months. Even if you don’t have a console, many games can be downloaded and played on a 

PC, including the racing games Forza Motorsport 7, Project CARS 2, and F1 2018. With outstanding graphics and sound effects, these games put players in the driver’s seat of some of the best cars in the world. 

Run the Mini – by Yourself

Although the race was rescheduled, the annual One America Mini Marathon was canceled for 2020. Instead, registered participants can run the Mini or a 5K on their own anytime before June 30, submit their time, and receive a medal and T-shirt in the mail. Participants who aren’t running the virtual Mini can rollover their registration to the 2021 or 2022 race.  

Fire-Up YouTube

Did you know that you can watch official broadcasts of prior Indy 500 races on YouTube? Take a look at races from decades ago from the comfort of your apartment! Wilshaw residents can get high-speed internet access at speeds up to 1G – perfect for watching videos. 

Get Ready for August

August will be here before you know it, and Wilshaw’s available apartments are filling up quickly. If you want to live within walking distance of the IMS, contact us today. We’re now offering virtual tours and online leasing – call for more details: (317) 342-9441.
