BorgWarner Continues as Turbocharger Supplier

A new agreement between BorgWarner and INDYCAR will see the Michigan-based company continue to supply the Engineered for Racing (EFR) twin turbochargers fitted to every IndyCar Series car through the 2020 season.

BorgWarner’s Indy car racing roots date back to 1935 when the Borg-Warner Trophy was created to honor Indianapolis 500 winners. Eight decades later, BorgWarner has extended its time as INDYCAR’s official turbocharger supplier from 2012 to at least 2020.

Since first partnering with the sanctioning body in 2012, BorgWarner has seen its turbochargers complete more than 1.25 million trouble-free miles in IndyCar competition.

“BorgWarner is honored to continue its partnership with INDYCAR and the IndyCar Series, America’s premier open-wheel racing series,” said Scott Gallett, BorgWarner Inc.’s vice president of marketing, public relations, government affairs and internal communications.

“Our EFR turbochargers are the perfect match for INDYCAR, with their advanced engineering, low weight and proven durability, they truly are engineered for racing.”

The turbochargers BorgWarner supplies to IndyCar teams will be put to the test in race conditions next on the streets of St. Petersburg during March’s Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
