BALTIMORE — DHL, the world’s leading logistics company, is delivering an exhilarating experience for race fans at the 2013 Grand Prix of Baltimore presented by SRT, this Labor Day weekend.
As the Official Express and Logistics Provider for the weekend event, DHL is bringing the “speed of yellow” to the Grand Prix of Baltimore both on and off the track. Highlights include ownership of Turn 1 – also known as the DHL Turn – at the corner of Pratt and Light Streets, the DHL Paddock and two DHL Speed Zones, which will offer a variety of activities for race fans around the sprawling Grand Prix of Baltimore course. Racing fans won’t be able to miss the distinctive red and yellow logo on trackside billboards and during pre-race ceremonies for the IZOD IndyCar Series and American Le Mans Series events.
DHL is the full primary sponsor of the Andretti Autosport No. 1 IndyCar entry driven by Ryan Hunter-Reay, the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series champion. Ryan, who has been running the No. 1 since the start of the racing season, won the 75-lap street course last year in Baltimore and all eyes are on the reigning champion again as he looks to defend his title.
The Grand Prix of Baltimore will take place in the heart of downtown Baltimore, with a 12-turn, 2-mile course that snakes through downtown and alongside the Inner Harbor and Camden Yard. This 180mph Festival of Speed is expected to bring more than 100,000 spectators to watch the cars and stars of the American Le Mans Series and the IZOD IndyCar Series.
