Verizon is preparing to take racing fans and customers “Inside Indy” all season long. With the green flag about to fall on the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season, Verizon will help fans feel like they’re truly getting to know what it’s like to be behind the wheel of an Indy car whether through the INDYCAR Mobile app or amazing at-track experiences.
The season starts on Sunday, March 13 with the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
Verizon drivers Juan Pablo Montoya and Will Power from Team Penske exclusively unveiled their new car liveries for 2016 on their social media profiles yesterday. Montoya’s No. 2 and Power’s No.12 cars will each feature a striking silver look and Verizon’s new branding, which the company introduced last year to reflect its focus on delivering the promise of the digital world. And that’s exactly what Verizon will do with INDYCAR this season: bringing the best of the digital world to racing fans.
The new Verizon IndyCar Series season promises to be truly historic with the 100th RUNNING of the Indianapolis 500 this year. 2016 also marks the 50th anniversary of Team Penske. And the best way for fans to experience every rev, pit and checkered flag is through the INDYCAR Mobile app on the Verizon network.
The INDYCAR Mobile app helps fans feel like they’re inside the cockpit and closer than ever to the action on the track by redefining how fans watch racing. The app offers additional features available only on the Verizon network such as live in-car camera feeds and 3D live views with car telemetry. It also features a real-time leaderboard and radio broadcasts from each race. Verizon customers will even be able to listen to the chatter between drivers and their pit crews. It’s truly a season pass for exclusive access.
Verizon will also be bringing its customers “Inside Indy” and providing fans at Verizon IndyCar Series races with unforgettable experiences and access. For example, throughout the season, Verizon will give fans rides in actual INDYCAR two-seater cars, Pit View seats that will be the best seats on the track and VIP track tours. It’s the kind of access that only Verizon can deliver and it will help to make the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season the most exciting one yet.
