"We are very proud to welcome ZF to HPD as a technical partner," said Art St. Cyr, president of HPD. "ZF's reputation as a technology supplier in the motorsport world and beyond is second to none, so we are delighted to be working with them. Together, we will continue to work on innovative products, to better help our teams and drivers stand on the top step of the podium in all of our racing series."

Dr. Stefan Sommer, CEO of ZF Friedrichshafen AG, adds: "We are really looking forward to the new technical partnership with Honda Performance Development. We already have a very successful and growing business relation with Honda, supplying products and technology for Honda production vehicles in the U.S. With the partnership in racing we are able to point out our prominent competencies as a development partner and technology leader in motorsports. The racing series where HPD participates are an ideal platform for this. We are looking forward to many future victories together. "

About Honda Performance Development, Inc. (HPD):
HPD was founded in 1993 as the performance arm of American Honda Motor Company, to spearhead the company's entry into IndyCar racing. No other manufacturer has matched Honda's success in IndyCars, which includes 207 race victories, 15 drivers' championships, six manufacturers' championships and nine consecutive Indianapolis 500 victories (2004-2012). In 2013, Honda powered veteran Scott Dixon to four race wins and the IZOD IndyCar Series championship, while Tristan Vautier won series Rookie of the Year honors.

HPD's prototype racing efforts have scored more than 70 victories and multiple American Le Mans Series engine, chassis, team, and drivers' championships. The company's sports-car racing debut in 2007 at the 12 Hours of Sebring marked the first win for HPD's LM-V8 engine and the first for a Honda racing engine designed and developed outside of Japan. HPD won the LMP2 title in the inaugural 2012 World Endurance Championship and, since 2010, has twice won the LMP2 category at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In 2013, HPD and Honda again swept the LMP1 and LMP2 manufacturers', engine, team and drivers' championships in the American Le Mans Series; while HPD-equipped Strakka Racing claimed the LMP1 private team class win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

HPD offers a complete line of race engines for professional, amateur and entry-level racers. For more information, please visit http://hpd.honda.com.
