"At 220 miles per hour, our lives are in the hands of our team and pit crew. HP technology is the most highly tuned and reliable choice when there is no margin for error. We count on HP to provide the stream-lined usability and computing power we need to perform flawlessly."

- Davey Hamilton

"HP engineering is at its finest on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. With our IndyCar drivers under heart-thumping pressure at every turn, HP notebooks, HP TouchSmart computers and HP Workstations are the choice of teams who leave nothing to chance."

- Jim Zafarana, vice president and general manager, Workstations, HP


HP technology is powering the Dreyer & Reinbold drivers and their teams at nearly every stage of the race.

  • The pit crews will use HP notebooks at trackside to monitor every move the cars make and remotely adjust suspension, telemetry and engine systems for optimal performance during every second of the race.
  • Also on the track, the team will use industry-leading HP TouchSmart touch-enabled computers and notebooks to quickly and easily log and analyze race times and scores, then send them to powerful HP servers for further analysis.
  • HP printers and high-definition plotter products create detailed drawings and printouts used for data comparison before, during and after the race.
  • The cars on the track were designed on HP Workstations – used worldwide by engineering and design professionals at the top of their game – to squeeze every ounce of horsepower into the cars.
