McLaren partners with Arrow Electronics

9 May 2019

McLaren Racing has announced a long-term commercial partnership with Arrow Electronics to push technology and innovation to the forefront of racing.

The partnership will begin at the Indianapolis 500 in May, where Fernando Alonso will compete at the 103rd running of the historic sporting event.

Built on the two organisations’ shared belief in technology and innovation as enablers of progress and the improvement of everyday life, the partnership will see the Arrow brand prominently represented on the two McLaren MCL34 Formula 1 race cars, as well as the team’s race drivers, Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris, as part of a multi-faceted activation programme. Arrow will also be carried on the McLaren race car when the team descends on the iconic Brickyard in Indianapolis this month.

The partnership brings the global technology and innovation business into the sport of Formula 1 for the first time. This wide-ranging commercial partnership will see the McLaren Group, which includes McLaren Automotive and McLaren Applied Technologies, benefit from Arrow’s technology and experience, and will integrate Arrow’s services into the McLaren Racing team’s operations.

Zak Brown, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Racing, said: “McLaren is a technology business at its heart and it is therefore natural to welcome Arrow, a global leader in its field, as a new partner. McLaren, like Arrow, is driven by innovation and applying technology in the pursuit of better, not just in motorsport but across all our group activities. We are delighted Arrow has decided to join our racing team, we’re proud of the class-leading brands that support our racing efforts and we’re looking forward to getting out on track together.”

Mike Long, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Arrow Electronics, commented: “At Arrow Electronics, we design technology solutions that guide innovation forward and improve the quality of life. We look forward to partnering with McLaren to not only take the experience of racing to the next level, but also apply the safety and performance advances from the track to everyday living.”
