Sorry, we didn't receive an English translationThe Indianapolis Motor Speedway is calling on owners of classic cars to display their magnificent machines in competition for blue-ribbon awards as part of the festivities of the 100th Anniversary Indianapolis 500 Mile Race®. Some 250 contestants will be selected from entries through our on-line registration form for the event to be held Friday, May 13 and Saturday May 14, 2011.
Called the “100th Anniversary Indy 500 Mile Race Celebration of Automobiles,” the event is for two broad classifications of automobiles manufactured between 1911 and 1961 – the first 50 years of the Indianapolis 500. These classifications are: 1) cars representing the 24 manufacturers that competed in the first Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in 1911 and 2) great classic cars and other collectible non-modified cars up to 1961. Among other information, the registration form will require two photos of your automobile and a description of its history. Previous participation in Concours d’Elegance competition increases the likelihood that your entry will be selected to compete.
