This test session will be open to the public. The South Terrace grandstand and Turn 2 viewing mounds will be open. The test will be a full day, and media availability will be from 12 to 1 PM (meaning no cars will be on track at that time).

INDYCAR announced today that it will hold a test of the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series car on April 4 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in preparation for the 96th running of the Indianapolis 500. Teams will be limited to one car each at the test.
“What was originally scheduled to be a manufacturers’ test has been expanded to provide each team the opportunity to send one car to the test,” said Will Phillips, vice president of technology for INDYCAR. “Dallara has worked hard to make sure all the required parts are available to allow teams to test the new package.”
Rookie drivers will not be part of the April 4 test as Rookie Orientation Program is slated for May 10 at the Speedway.
