The 106th Indy 500 is ready to run this weekend with a host of big storylines going into the iconic showdown at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.


Four-time winner and reigning champion Helio Castroneves will started from the ninth row of the 33-man grid.

Formula 1 fans will cast a keen eye over the race after former Haas driver Romain Grosjean qualified to start the Indy 500 from the third row of the grid as the quickest rookie competitor of the year.

Scott Dixon will start the race from pole position. The six-time IndyCar champion is a veteran of the sport and won the Indy 500 in 2008.

The 41-year-old was the favourite to win last year's race but for a spot of bad luck that saw another competitor crash and the pit lane closed, and Dixon was forced to shut off his engine.

His car wouldn't restart during an emergency service and his chances of victory went up in smoke. Can Dixon finally land a second title in IndyCar racing's showpiece event? brings you all the details on how to watch the Indy 500 in the UK, including full TV schedule and coverage details.
