The only way for the unconnected to see the podium is from across the track. Those seats are reserves, IIRC but the GP can go in front of the stands.

I want to wander some during practice and qualifiying but I might pay the premium for the club if it's actually worth it, the concern is it might be a CF, anybody got any feedback?
This package looks to be quite a bit cheaper than the corner 9 club with similar perks.

Keep in mind that the "paddock access" they talk about here is not the same as a paddock pass. The hospitality units have a fixed number of passes that must be checked out and returned within a certain time. IOW, take a number and stand in line. Also, the "free motorcycle parking" is likely to be on the back straight (of the oval), which is to put it mildly, a hike from the center of activity.

Corner 9 is going to be interesting...
Honda has secured a portion of it...
Ducati has secured a portion of it...
And there is the normal Corner 9 Club tickets...

Yup. It took me being a guest of Monster Yamaha/Tech III to get access to parc ferme...but it was a madhouse and wasn't worth the annoying jostling and jockeying for the champange shower when my guy wasn't on the rostrum.

You might feel some RPM's from that seat. Enjoy!

Ground transportation?

I'm flying in and staying downtown. Any advice on the best way to get to the track? Would like to avoid renting a car if possible (My 3 year old will be attending as well, and I'd like to avoid dealing with a car seat). Taxi appears to be $20 each way. Any city shuttles available?

I walked from the track to downtown in 2011. It was amazing! I would not recommend it to anyone traveling with people who aren't fit.

I don't remember seeing any shuttles to the track from any of the hotels. All day at the track, gonna have a pretty tuckered out little kid on your hands at the end of the days at track.

Mass transit SUCKS in Indy. We're victims of cheap real estate so it's easier to go out than up so the city is spread way out and all we have is an antiquated bus system. And you can't get anywhere timely on it.

Plan on a cab, way easier than a rental, and you don't have to pay to park at the track or at the hotel.

Mrs. Easy took me to Austin for the GP this year and we wound up sharing cabs with folks we met at the cab stand at the hotel. Cut down on the price, got to meet some cool folks and a couple of tools for us, without a little guy, it worked pretty well and overall I think we saved money.
