INDIANAPOLIS — GESS Int’l and Capstone Turbine Corporation will serve as the primary sponsor of the Andretti Autosport No. 27 driven by Alexander Rossi in two NTT IndyCar Series events.
The No. 27 entry will carry sponsorship from both brands this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway and again in August at Pocono Raceway. The partnership builds off the associate sponsorship across all four Andretti Autosport entries.
The relationship between the championship-winning team and GESS Int’l began during the Month of May, where the GESS logo appeared on each of Andretti Autosport’s four Indy cars for the IndyCar Grand Prix and it’s five-car line up during the 103rd edition of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
“GESS Int’l is excited to expand its partnership with Capstone Turbine Corporation and Andretti Autosport with Alexander Rossi, the driver of the No. 27 Indy car,” said Shaun Lee, president of GESS Int’l. “As leaders in the renewable natural gas (RNG) industry, GESS looks to promote the use of RNG Biogas. GESS continues to raise awareness of carbon negative emissions and green energy.”
Capstone Turbine Corporation, a strategic partner of GESS Int’l, is committed to improving the efficiencies of energy needs around the world, while simultaneously reducing the global emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases. Capstone’s systems help end users improve their impact on the environment, while still meeting power and reliability needs. To date, Capstone has shipped over 9,000 units to 73 countries and last year alone saved customers an estimated $253 million in annual energy costs and 350,000 tons of carbon.
“We are very excited about this partnership opportunity with Andretti Autosport in support of Alexander Rossi as Capstone Turbine looks to further the brand awareness of its high-efficiency, low-emission energy solutions,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone. “Despite saving customers millions of dollars annually and helping save the planet by reducing tons of carbon, it’s still surprising how many people are still not aware of Capstone’s innovative, clean and green microturbine products. I’m confident that our sponsorship with the world-renowned Andretti Autosport will help us raise awareness of our new disruptive energy technology.”
“We are thrilled to grow our partnership with GESS Int’l and welcome Capstone to Andretti,” said Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti. “Our partnership was first highlighted with Alexander Rossi when he drove to a second-place finish in Indy. We’re happy to welcome GESS back in a larger capacity and look forward to continue growing our on-track success.”
