The Indianapolis 500 is one of the premier sporting events in the US and this year marks the 100th anniversary of the great race. The race really comes to life on television too, with countless camera angles, including each driver’s point of view, an aerial camera that is mobile, numerous fixed locations and a helicopter.
Another exciting innovation on this year’s broadcast is the continuous showing of the race, even during commercials. This has probably been on other races, but other sports should give it a try sometime too. The TV timeout has got to go!
The video below shows some of the qualifying times from Friday.
