Dragon Racing moving to old PPI/Arciero shop in California?UPDATE #2 An interesting bit of news to go along with just how strong the Dragon Racing effort is going to be. The fact they are taking over such a nice facility in California signifies they mean business. Why California? So other teams can't poach their best employees. Besides, the weather is great all year round for testing.

01/14/12 Dragon Racing is on the move, team owner Jay Penske confirmed Friday.
Based in Indianapolis since its inception in 2007, the bulk of the Izod IndyCar Series team's operation is going to Marina del Rey, Calif.
Penske said the two-car team -- drivers Sebastien Bourdais and Katherine Legge with backing from Lotus -- is moving into a custom-built 12,000-square-foot glass building that will showcase the IndyCar effort.
"It will be much easier to facilitate sponsorship and get people to come see our shop," Penske said. "Once they see this thing, it's going to be pretty good."
Penske said the reorganized team is getting help from three West Coast teams: Pacific Coast Motorsports, Dan Gurney's All-American Racers and PPI Motorsports. Some aspects of the team will remain in Indianapolis.
Team sponsorships are still to be announced, but Microsoft and McAfee will be involved. Legge has ties to TrueCar. IndyStar
