The Transporter


Transporter Interior LayoutAn NTT IndyCar Series transporter serves as a team’s “race shop on wheels,” crucial to the at-track activity of every team. These big rigs not only transport race cars and equipment but convert into a mobile race shop with high-tech work areas and team headquarters, housing everything needed for a successful race weekend.

Meeting Area (RED): Utilized for driver debriefings, race strategy sessions, engineering meetings and driver interviews.

Overhead Storage (YELLOW): Transportation and storage area for the team’s primary car and back-up or “T” car. Cars are loaded and unloaded from overhead storage using a lift. Awnings or canopies can be attached to the exterior overhead storage area, creating a make-shift garage area at tracks with limited or temporary space such as street courses.

Lower Storage Area (BLUE): This travel storage area converts into a workspace at-track.

This transporter is just an example of what you may find in the NTT IndyCar Series paddock. Teams modify this basic design to fit their at-track needs.
