Earlier this week, the newly re-branded ISM (formerly Phoenix) Raceway announced the return of the popular “Prix View” for next month’s February test session. The event, which is book-ended by two IndyCar test sessions, will be free for all fans to attend.
Gates will open at noon, with the test sessions scheduled from 1-4 p.m. and the second session scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
Between the two sessions, an autograph session will be held. Fans will have the opportunity to obtain wristbands for access to the autograph session. ISM Raceway’s February test will not only be the first open test of the year, but also the first test of 2018 for the universal aero kit on an oval.
Below is the official press release.
Press Release from ISM Raceway
Kicking off the 2018 racing season, ISM Raceway is excited to invite fans and media back to the track for the third-annual Verizon IndyCar Series “Prix View” test session on Saturday, Feb. 10. Fans will be able to see virtually the entire field of drivers on the track as the stars of the sport prepare for the Phoenix Grand Prix, which takes place on April 7, as well as interact with their favorite drivers at an autograph session.
Gates open at noon with free admission for all fans to find the perfect seat for the two testing sessions throughout the day, the first from 1 – 4 p.m. and the second beginning at 6 p.m.
To keep the entertainment rolling between tests, an autograph session will be held from 4:45 – 5:30 p.m. on the DC Solar Power Pavilion. Fans can obtain a wristband to participate from the ISM Raceway Booth beginning at noon at the ISM Raceway display on the DC Solar Power Pavilion (while supplies last).
This will be the first chance for fans to get a look at the 2018 IndyCar aero kit. The new body, with streamlined aerodynamics, is designed to put on the ultimate show, and fans who attend the Prix View will get a sneak peek.
