Continuing the momentum
following Andretti Autosport’s 1 – 2 finish at the epic 100th Running of the
Indianapolis 500, the team’s partnership portfolio continues to grow with the
addition of Magneti Marelli, a global advanced systems and component supplier
for the automotive industry.
The first appearance for the
brand will come through primary sponsorship of Carlos Muñoz and the No. 26
Magneti Marelli Honda for the Verizon IndyCar Series Duel in Detroit on June 4
and 5 and associate sponsorship of Marco Andretti and the No. 27 Snapple /
United Fiber & Data Honda for all remaining races on the 2016 IndyCar
schedule. The partnership also further
strengthens the race team’s technical capabilities as Magneti Marelli and
Andretti Autosport will be collaborating on a number of development and
engineering projects to optimize the race team’s performance.
“We are really excited to
welcome Magneti Marelli into the Andretti family of partners and carry the
Magneti Marelli colors on Carlos’ Indy car this weekend,” said Andretti
Autosport CEO Michael Andretti. “As a global leader in automotive technology
and innovation, Magneti Marelli brings strong technical resources and
engineering expertise that will further enhance our race operations and
on-track performance. Magneti Marelli
has a strong and long-standing legacy in motorsport dating back nearly 100
years to 1919; it’s really great to bring them on as a partner following this
past weekend’s historic 100th Running of the Indy 500.”
