Former Le Mans winner, F1 driver and Indy car winner Mark Blundell never raced the Indy 500 but recognises the significance of this weekend’s race. While the North American audience will be drawn to Indiana, Europe’s racing elite will be concentrating on the Monaco Grand Prix and the Nurburgring 24 Hour race.

Mark said: “Every racing driver at every level knows of the three great Motorsport events in the world, Monaco Grand Prix, Le Mans 24 hr and the Indianapolis 500. This year’s 500 race is very special as it will be 100th time this race is run in its esteemed history and who ever wins in 2016 will be etched in the memories of many of us for years to come, as one of the greatest drivers winning at one of the greatest tests of man and machine.”
