IndyCar has been part of McLaren since our early years of racing, and the series today provides not only a commercial platform to continue to grow our brand in North America, but competition with some of the best teams in international motorsport, said Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing. We come to IndyCar in full respect of the sport, our competitors, the fans and the task ahead.
