KVSH Racing has announced a partnership for the upcoming Verizon IndyCar Series season with technology companies Mouser Electronics and Molex.

Mouser caters to design engineers and buyers by delivering ‘What’s Next’ in advanced technologies, stocking the world’s widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components, while Molex is a global company with a presence in more than 40 countries, delivering complete interconnect solutions for many industries, with automotive being one of its key markets.

“We are excited to welcome back both Mouser Electronics and Molex to help us chase the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series championship,” said team co-owner James Sullivan. “Mouser and Molex fuel us with the resources we need to “Stay Connected” to the cutting-edge components world and enable us to stay at the sharp end of the grid within IndyCar.”

Todd McAtee, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President of Business Development in the Americas, added: “Mouser utilizes its partnership with KVSH Racing as an inventive way to communicate our performance-driven business model and promote the latest product innovations through the high-tech world of Indy car racing.

“The outstanding partnership between Mouser Electronics, KVSH Racing and Molex is a testament to the group’s commitment to speed, performance and excellence, both on and off the racetrack.”

KVSH Racing enters the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series as a one-car team with Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais set for his 11th year in the series and third with the team.

“I am excited to have the support of Mouser Electronics and Molex,” Bourdais said. “Both companies have been with KVSH Racing before and enjoyed a lot of success.

“For them to return is a vote of confidence in what we are doing here. I look forward to bringing them the kind of success they deserve.”

The 16-round Verizon IndyCar Series season will begin on the streets of St. Petersburg on the weekend of March 11-13.
