Andretti Autosport – Verizon IndyCar Series, USA

It takes speed, determination and dedication to deliver a winning performance both on and off the track. That’s why DHL has a decade of experience in motorsports, starting with Formula 1®. In 2011, DHL signed on with the winning team Andretti Autosport at the premier open-wheel racing series in the United States, the IndyCar Series. It offers one of the most diverse and challenging schedules in motorsports with races held on ovals, permanent road courses and temporary street courses, with the world-renowned Indianapolis 500-Mile Race serving as the centerpiece of the IndyCar Series schedule each year.
As the Official Logistics Sponsor of Andretti Autosport, 2014 turned out to be a thrilling season for DHL. Thousands of fans were on the edge of their seats at the 98th Indianapolis 500, as Ryan Hunter-Reay drove home the win in the No. 28 DHL IndyCar. The race was not only the second closest finish for the Indy 500, but it was also the first time that an American driver was able to take the crown since 2006. Hunter-Reay truly earned the distinction as the most successful American driver currently in IndyCar competition.

Based in Indianapolis and led by racing legend Michael Andretti, Andretti Autosport boasts a wide racing portfolio rooted in tradition and designed for success. Together with Andretti Formula E and Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross, Andretti Autosport fields multiple entries in the IndyCar Series, Indy Lights and the Pro Mazda Championship, along with entries in the FIA Formula E Championship and Global Rallycross. The company boasts four IndyCar Series championships (2004, 2005, 2007 and 2012), two Indy Lights titles (2008 and 2009), one Pro Mazda championship (2013) and one USF2000 championship (2010), as well as capturing victory at the famed Indianapolis 500 three times (2005, 2007 and 2014). The Andretti name has grown to transcend the sport in which it has been a fixture for the past 50 years. Michael's contribution to that success – 42 race wins as a driver and another 49 as an Verizon IndyCar Series owner – has been significant.

As Official Express and Logistics Provider of Andretti Autosport, DHL handles all of the team’s international logistics needs – big or small.
