DHL Named Official Express and Logistics Provider of the Grand Prix of Baltimore The world's largest logistics company, DHL has been named the Official Express and Logistics Provider for the 2012 Grand Prix of Baltimore, Labor Day weekend, August 31 - September 2.
As part of the DHL sponsorship, the improved Grand Prix track layout will include the "DHL Turn" - also known as Turn 1 - at the corner of Pratt and Light Streets. DHL will deliver the Grand Prix trophies to the victory podium located in Sunoco Victory Lane, and DHL branding will be seen in the three "DHL Speed Zones" which will offer a variety of activities for race fans around the sprawling Grand Prix of Baltimore course. Look for the distinct red and yellow logo on trackside billboards, and during pre-race ceremonies for the IZOD IndyCar Series and American Le Mans Series events.
The Grand Prix of Baltimore will take place in the heart of downtown Baltimore, with a 12-turn, 2-mile course that snakes through downtown and alongside the Inner Harbor. This 180mph Festival of Speed is expected to bring more than 100,000 spectators to watch the cars and stars of the American Le Mans Series and the IZOD IndyCar Series.
Since 2011, DHL has been the Official Express and Logistics provider of Andretti Autosport, serving as the primary co-sponsor of the No. 28 entry of Ryan Hunter-Reay and an associate sponsor of the No. 27 car driven by IndyCar's 2011 Rookie of the Year, James Hinchcliffe. With approximately 275,000 employees in more than 220 countries and territories, DHL is the global market leader in the international express and logistics industry.
"We are thrilled to be a sponsor of the Grand Prix of Baltimore and help bring the excitement of IndyCar racing to spectators attending the Labor Day weekend racing events," said Christine Nashick, Vice President of Marketing for DHL. "The speed, reliability and dedication exemplified by the IndyCar drivers, including DHL-sponsored drivers Ryan Hunter-Reay and James Hinchcliffe, has been a wonderful way to express our similar brand attributes with customers, employees and racing fans."
