When Marco Andretti leads the 33-strong field at this weekend’s 104th running of the Indy 500, it will mark another chapter in the illustrious history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We are proud to be supplying our motorsport electronics to the entire grid once again, extending our involvement with Indy into a new decade, albeit under unusual circumstances in 2020.
This year’s event will be like no other, taking place behind closed doors on a late August date, but our support remains as detailed and meticulous as ever. You don’t have to walk far down Gasoline Alley to find one of our trackside engineers or see our prominently branded stand in the pitlane.
Cosworth is closely linked to Indy 500, yet our involvement extends far beyond the supply of our latest, highest performing electronics solutions. We have a team of four dedicated engineers on site throughout the Indy 500 event – from the very first runs in practice through qualifying and onto race day.
Communication is key and our on-site set-up reflects that. We have a physical presence in the pitlane and an office – both with the COSWORTH name proudly emblazoned – as well as remote connections to teams via radios, phones and instant messaging. If ever a team requires assistance, we are on hand to support in an instant. Even if issues are not directly related to the performance of our products, we know that the term ‘electronics’ is inherently associated with our name and reputation.
For us, Indy 500 is more than an event; it’s part of our company’s heritage and something we treat with the respect it deserves. Good luck and safe racing to all the teams and drivers competing for victory this Sunday, we’re right behind you!
