Published on 18 March 2010
17 events this year
The Holmatro Safety Team unveiled its new look for the 2010 season that opens in Sao Paolo, Brazil, next month. Holmatro has provided trackside support at every Indy Racing League race since its January 1996 inaugural event at Walt Disney World Speedway. In 2010, the Holmatro Safety Team will accompany the Indy Racing League, the sanctioning body for the IZOD IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights, at 17 events in the United States, Canada, Brazil and Japan.
The team travels with four safety vehicles and brings the most sophisticated racing technologies with its state-of-the-art, high-performance Holmatro rescue equipment to each venue. It continually evaluates its on-track procedures to be at the forefront of motorsports safety for participants and spectators. The Holmatro Safety Team works in conjunction with and coordinates the safety personnel staffing each venue, including firefighters, ambulance and tow-truck providers and track maintenance crews. An eight-hour instructional course is held at every new venue on the schedule and the team meets with tracks for update sessions before each event.
"Holmatro tools have been a staple of our safety team's equipment over the years, and we're excited to now have the company serve as the title sponsor of the crew," said Terry Angstadt, president of the commercial division, Indy Racing League. "We continue to take pride in our role as a leader in on-track safety in the motorsports community and with Holmatro's support, we look forward to further expanding our leadership position."
