Andretti Autosport rocked the INDYCAR paddock this morning with the announcement that they've signed on former Honda Performance Development technical director Roger Griffiths. Griffiths, who abruptly left his post at Honda just prior to the Verizon IndyCar Series opener last month, has had previous stints working in Formula 1, the American Le Mans Series and the European Le Means Series.
"I am very excited to be joining the Andretti Autosport Organization," said Griffiths. "I have, in past, shared a lot of victories with the team but now look forward to the opportunity to be able to contribute more directly to their future success and growth."
Griffiths will not only work with Andretti Autosport's 4-car Verizon IndyCar Series effort, but also with the team's Road to Indy developmental ladder to IndyCar, Formula E, and Global Rallycross entries.
"I'm very excited to have Roger join the team," Andretti said. "A man with his knowledge, talent and experience will be a huge addition for not just Andretti Autosport, but also for VARX and Andretti Formula E. We look forward to using expertise in many different areas within our team."
