Dallara to mark 200th Indy car win
Dallara will present a commemorative trophy to the winner of the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama to mark its 200th IZOD IndyCar Series victory on April 7 at Barber Motorsports Park.
Since 1997, Dallara has designed and built chassis for teams competing in the IZOD IndyCar Series and has been the sole chassis supplier to the series since 2006.
"When Dallara and INDYCAR met in 1997, we began a relationship that has lasted many years,"
said Stefano De Ponti, head of Dallara operations in the United States. "We went through these battles against other important manufacturers (G Force and Riley & Scott) and here we are.We celebrate our 200th
"(The relationship between INDYCAR and Dallara is) a technical relationship, a business partnership, but mainly a personal relationship. You have professional ethics on both sides and we carry on under these principles, the way we think, the way we progress with the good of the sport in mind.
"I've been in motorsports basically all my life and (reaching a milestone) is a personal satisfaction, and thinking not of the results that have been achieved but thinking of the job that has been done for people on both sides. It will be good feeling to move forward and achieve another 100 victories."
