IMS Press Release: A Day-By-Day Guide To What's On At The Red Bull Indianapolis MotoGP Round

With MotoGP about to get back on track after the short summer break, bike fans will start to gather at Indianapolis. Although the action revolves around the three Grand Prix classes on track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, there is plenty more to be doing in and around the track and downtown Indianapolis. The highlights on Friday are the Riders for Health auction, where memorabilia and work by some of the top MotoGP photographers go on sale, to support MotoGP's adopted charity, and the Indy Mile, at the State Fairground. Saturday's highlights include the Cycle World Q&A session, where you get to put your questions to the US magazine's staff writers, including motorcycle genius Kevin Cameron, and a farewell Q&A session with Colin Edwards at his final home Grand Prix. The weekend naturally culminates with the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix on Sunday. 

Below is a press release issued by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a complete timetable of events:
