The 17-race season — the 24th of the IndyCar Series — kicks off March 10 in Florida at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, and includes the 103rd running of the famed Indianapolis 500, set for May 26. Sebastien Bourdais returns as pilot of the Mouser- and Molex-sponsored No. 18 IndyCar. Bourdais won the St. Pete race in both 2017 and 2018, and finished last season in the top ten.
“Bourdais and the entire team showed incredible tenacity in every race last season and, given his track record at St. Pete, we could be off to a powerful start again this season,” said Todd McAtee, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President, Americas Business Development.
“Molex is excited to team up with Mouser to sponsor the No. 18 car,” said Fred Bell, Vice President of Global Distribution for Molex. “As a leading provider of integrated electronic solutions, Molex excels in providing components for challenging automotive applications. Our sponsorship gives us the opportunity to further demonstrate our commitment to developing products that help advance the automotive industry.”
Mouser first sponsored IndyCar racing in 2011 as a way to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies. The Mouser-sponsored car won the Indianapolis 500 in 2013. After St. Pete, the series travels to the IndyCar Classic at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, on March 24, followed by 14 other races before the finale at Monterey, Calif. in September.
