Building on its incredibly successful, multi-year relationship, Team Penske and Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group are collaborating to upgrade Penske’s state-of-the-art headquarters in Mooresville, NC with cutting-edge Hitachi technology including LCD and DLP projectors, HDTVs and DVD/Blu-ray players.

The systems provided by Hitachi include: five LE55H508 55” HD televisions; three HBD316 DVD/Blu-ray players and two projectors, models CP-X2530WN and CP-DX300. With their new Hitachi HDTVs state-of-the-art picture performance, Team Penske will have an incredibly life-like viewing experience. The feature rich televisions are the result of over 50 years of expert television engineering.

“At Hitachi, we strive for success in each and every facet of our business, from innovative products to a major sponsorship in the ultra-competitive world of INDYCAR racing. We couldn’t be more pleased to partner with Team Penske once again.” said Hiroshi Murakawa, Vice President and General Manager, Hitachi America Ltd, Digital Media Division.

“We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish not only with this project, but also in our continued relationship with Hitachi,” said Tim Cindric, President of Penske Racing. “In the areas where we needed to upgrade our facility, Hitachi is an industry leader so it really was a natural fit. We appreciate Hitachi’s guidance and partnership to ensure our equipment is state-of-the-art moving forward.”

“Our partnership with Hitachi has grown and developed over the last four seasons and we are proud of the success we have had together in the Verizon IndyCar Series,” said Roger Penske. “Hitachi has established itself as an important partner in the series, not only with Helio and our team, but also working with Chevrolet on their engine fuel injection systems. We are excited to build on that winning formula in 2015 and beyond as we continue Team Penske’s integrated global partnership with Hitachi.”

After first competing with Team Penske in the 2012 INDYCAR season, Hitachi became a primary sponsor on the No. 3 Chevy driven by Castroneves at select races in 2013 when the popular Brazilian driver finished second in the championship. Last season, Hitachi was the primary sponsor for Castroneves for approximately half of the INDYCAR races, as the No. 3 team once again finished as series runner-up behind Power, who claimed his first title. Adding to the winning combination on the track, Castroneves and Hitachi have worked together to build the “One Hitachi” brand around Hitachi’s social innovation business as a key part of the company’s integrated marketing efforts.

“Hitachi has been an awesome partner for Team Penske and we are all very excited to welcome them back to the No. 3 Chevy team this season,” said Castroneves. “I have had a great time racing and winning for Hitachi and getting a chance to represent them off the track as well. With Hitachi’s continued support, hopefully we can bring home the championship for Team Penske this season.”
