Hendrickson, in association with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL), recently debuted an engineering support trailer RLL will utilize throughout the season.
The trailer made its first appearance at the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 in Speedway IN.
“The addition of a third trailer devoted exclusively to our engineers will enable us to maximize information sharing between our most important assets—our human capital,” said Bobby Rahal, team co-owner of RLL, with David Letterman and Michael Lanigan.
“In addition to using the state-of-the-art trailer to its full extent, we are looking forward to sharing technology.”
In addition to supplying the trailer, Hendrickson, a global manufacturer and supplier of suspension systems and components to the global commercial transportation industry, also announced a multi-year partnership with RLL that makes it an associate sponsor of the team’s NTT IndyCar Series program.
The design of the engineering support trailer features a single wheel INTRAAX suspension that maximizes the interior dimensions and usable space for the race team.
“For Hendrickson, advanced technology and innovation continues to drive our product development engineering process,” said Gary Gerstenslager, Hendrickson president and CEO. “We look at all industries for inspiration and new ideas, and IndyCar has always been at the top of the list. The opportunity to partner with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing on their engineering support trailer and to share technology was an easy decision for Hendrickson.
“We are proud to be associated with RLL.”
