Now in its fifth consecutive season as the exclusive brake supplier, Brembo and INDYCAR kick off the 2016 season this weekend at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
The Verizon INDYCAR Series has compiled a challenging 2016 season which includes familiar venues, new circuits and the highly-anticipated 100th running of the Indianapolis 500. Brembo brakes will be used by the entire INDYCAR field from the drop of the green flag in St. Petersburg until the champion is crowned in Sonoma.
“Last year’s Verizon INDYCAR Series was phenomenal with the championship undecided until the final laps at Sonoma; we’re looking forward to having another stellar season of racing,” said Dan Sandberg, president and chief executive officer, Brembo North America. “The aerodynamic kits introduced last season by Chevrolet and Honda showed marginal gains in downforce and drivers are taking full advantage of Brembo’s brake systems by braking deeper, and by getting back on the throttle sooner.”
