INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Governor Mike Pence will join Gian Paolo Dallara, owner of Dallara, Mark Miles, chief executive officer of Hulman & Company, and other officials at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday for a ribbon cutting ceremony of the new Dallara D3 driving simulator at the Dallara IndyCar Factory in Speedway.

The Dallara D3 driving simulator is a platform for the development of motor vehicles and associated components with real time driver-in-the-loop control. Last year, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation announced plans to provide a grant of up to $1.15 million for the motorsports engineering program at the School of Engineering and Technology at Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis to develop a partnership with Dallara to conduct basic and applied research involving dynamic vehicle simulation. This simulator's location in central Indiana will further enhance the state's reputation as the worldwide center of motorsports and draw race teams from around the world, including their support teams of mechanics and engineers. In addition, this project is expected to advance motorsports engineering techniques and motorsports-related economic development opportunities for the state of Indiana.
