Castroneves to drive Shell-Pennzoil Penske at Indy
3 December 2010 – Team Penske has confirmed that Shell and Pennzoil will be part of its team at next May’s Indianapolis 500, with the companies set to sponsor the car of 2001, 2002 and 2009 winner Helio Castroneves.
The Brazilian aims for a record-tying fourth Indy 500 victory in 2011, with the new sponsorship programme meaning his car will switch from a black and red colour scheme to a new red, white and yellow livery.
“I am very excited to be working with Shell and Pennzoil this season and I’m proud to have the opportunity to drive the beautiful Shell V-Power-Pennzoil Ultra car in the 2011 Indianapolis 500,” he commented.
“Shell and Pennzoil have such a great history in IndyCar racing and they have certainly had some special moments with Penske Racing at the Indy 500. I hope we can create a little bit more history together this May at Indianapolis.”
