This game is one of my all-time favourites. It took me dozends of tries until I was able to win the full 200 lap distance.

But I have two additional notes to this review:
1. All three cars have exactly the same speed. Only the default setup is different. But if you tweak the setup for the March or Buick, you can drive as fast as with the Penske.
2. The PC-speaker sound is indeed annoying. But there is soundcard support, you have to start the exe with parameters for that.
For example, to use Sound Blaster, start the game with "indy.exe /a".

Truly, you get lazy once and drift wide and everything is all over...

An interesting anecdote, the founder of one of the leading suppliers of racing safety equipment quit racing forever after he caught himself thinking about his kids school grades, and how he had to fix the gas heater when he got home while he was racing. This was at Indianapolis.

OMG! I loved this game! I'll never forget when I was in highschool and spent a whole weekend playing it. On the Sunday, I spent 5 hours attempting to complete a 200 lap race (with lots of game pausing every now and then for refreshments and lunch) only to crash on the 175th lap whilst in first position. I don't think I ever played it again after that. What a great game. What a great memory. Thanks.

'Indianapolis 500' is one of the first racing sims that kept me from doing anything else than racing around the famous 'Brickyard'. The game itself is actually quite simple: The Indianapolis Raceway is the only track and you can choose from three different cars. But the ultimate challenge, to finish the Indy 500 race (which takes about 2-3 hours of pure racing time) is what keeps you motivated. And very rarely you will have this satifying feeling of seeing the chequered flag.
