Rahal Letterman Lanigan has bolstered its organization with the addition of Stefano Sordo as technical director of its program in the NTT IndyCar Series, beginning October 1.

RLL Racing revealed the move on Thursday. Sordo brings more than 20 years of engineering experience in Formula 1, including the past six seasons with McLaren as head of director of vehicle performance, with previous stops at Red Bull Racing, among other squads.

“I’m very excited to be joining Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s team in the IndyCar series,” said Sordo, via a team release. “It is a very challenging and very competitive series where I think every competitor can have a chance at winning every time they participate in a race providing you get all the ingredients right. The excitement of this new role for me is to challenge myself and see if with the experience and methodology developed through many years spent in F1 I can help the team moving forward in becoming a consistent front running team. This is the clear challenge and target that I set for myself and I look forward to getting started. I would like to thank Bobby and Mike for this opportunity and their trust in my abilities and I hope I can repay them with successes at the track.”

Bobby Rahal, the 1986 Indianapolis 500 winner and co-owner of RLL Racing, added, “I’m so please that Stefano will be joining the team as technical director. He is well-respected in the industry and his track record speaks for itself having worked with organizations like McLaren and Red Bull in Formula One, among others. I’m confident that Stefano will bring to us a perspective that will raise our game against our competition and work well with our existing engineering staff.”
