Indianapolis is the largest city and capital of Indiana, USA. Indianapolis is also almost exactly in the centre of the state. For those who are unfamiliar with this Midwestern state, let’s take a minute to talk about what it is it known for. Indianapolis is home to two large research universities: Indiana State University-Purdue University and the University of Indianapolis. The city also became world renowned for the Indianapolis 500, which is a car race held annually on the Sunday before Memorial Day on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This is said to be the world’s largest single-day sporting event, attracting thousands of motor sport fans. Interesting, right?
