Bridgestone Partners with Indy Autonomous Challenge to Help Accelerate the Future of Mobility

Bridgestone Americas, Inc. (Bridgestone) today announced it has formed a partnership with the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC), a global competition among university teams to program a modified Dallara IL-15 racecar and compete in the world’s first autonomous high-speed, head-to-head race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway® (IMS). Bridgestone will serve as the exclusive tire supplier for the event, which is scheduled for October 23, 2021.

Bridgestone will work closely with the IAC and its participating teams on a collective vision to push the boundaries of self-driving car technology and increase public awareness of the impact that automation can have on society. This mission closely aligns with Bridgestone’s strategic shift to evolve its focus beyond tires to provide sustainable mobility and advanced solutions that create new value for its customers and society.
