BorgWarner has signed an extension to provide the IndyCar Series with turbochargers for the next two seasons. As the sole supplier to IndyCar since the 2.2-liter turbo formula began in 2012, the Michigan-based firm works with Chevy and Honda to deliver forced-induction products that have pushed the small V6 engines beyond 700hp in high-boost configuration.
“BorgWarner is honored to continue its partnership with the IndyCar Series, America’s premier open-wheel racing series,” said BorgWarner’s Scott Gallett, whose turbos have completed 1.25 million miles of competition in IndyCar. “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 agreement comes as the series looks to its next engine formula, an all-new 2.4-liter twin-turbo V6s for 2021, where supply contracts for turbochargers, engine control units, and other related ancillaries will likely go out for bid to interested vendors.
