Each has a long and proud history and have been won by the greats of motor racing.
But with American open wheel motor racing in a terrible state, does the Monaco Grand Prix outstrip the Indianapolis 500 as a sporting occasion?
The last ‘proper’ Indy 500 was held in 1995 before the CART-IRL split ruined open-wheel racing in America.
The 33 cars that line up for Sunday’s Indy 500 will once again be entirely drawn from the Indy Racing League. It will be missing the top Champ Car drivers not to mention former open wheel stars such as AJ Allmendinger that have defected to NASCAR.
