Andretti Relationship with TE Connectivity Expands to Include Major Formula E Sponsorship
In addition to being on the frontline of new eMotor tech development and serving as the lead technology partner for Andretti Technologies, TE Connectivity, a global leader in connectivity and sensor solutions, is now also the major sponsor for the Andretti Formula E Race Team. The venture into race team sponsorship furthers TE’s commitment to sustainable, clean-energy innovations.
Integration and collaboration between the two companies will utilize TE Connectivity technology and engineering support within the Andretti Technologies ATEC-01’s powertrain development program that will be driven by Andretti Formula E in this second season of competition.
“TE’s connectivity and sensor solutions powered every Formula E car in its inaugural season,” said Amy Shah, Chief Marketing Officer of TE Connectivity. “We are committed to advancing technologies that are smart, safe, green and connected. This series has the potential to influence and create sustainable, next-generation technologies that extend beyond motorsport. We are proud to expand our relationship with the Andretti organization, a team that shares our passion for advanced engineering and innovation.”
The TE Connectivity orange branding can be seen on the Amlin Andretti Formula E cars at upcoming pre-season testing prior to the Championship’s 2015/2016 launch. The second season of the FIA Formula E Championship begins in Beijing on October 17, 2015 and runs through to the season finale double-header in London, for a total of 11 rounds of electrifying competition.
