Indy Lights Overview

Introduction

The Indy Lights API provides schedules and post-race results for the entire Indy NXT Series. All data is collected via Sportradar’s expert operators.

Select the Indy Lights package in our Coverage Matrix for events and data offered.

This API uses a descending, stage-based structure. By changing the stage ID, you can retrieve information on a season, event, race, or any of the practice or qualifying stages.

Additional feeds provide complementary stats, including racer profiles.

Authentication is required for all API calls.

Stage Format

The Indy Lights API uses generic stage implementation. The core of the API is built around the concept of stages. For example, an event contains the following stage types: practice, qualifying, and race. Each of those stages, in turn, have stages (except Practice which has no sub-stages). The IDs of each stage are usable in the URL path to request information about that particular stage.

The Indy Lights sport and seasons within it are stages as well. The sport stage consists of season stages for each annual season. Using the ID of a chosen season as a parameter in the Stage Summary endpoint you can "drill down" into each season. For example, using the 2022 season ID as a parameter in the Stage Summary endpoint, the sub-stages will be individual race events. From the race event, you can drill down into the practice, qualifying, and race stages using the same endpoint with different stage IDs.

The best way to 'start' the navigation with the Indy Lights API is using the Seasons endpoint. From there one can obtain the stage ID for the season required and use that as a parameter in the Stage Summary endpoint.
