The Indy 500 Goes Wireless

NEW YORK - Auto racing goes wireless on Sunday at the Indianapolis
Motor Speedway.

Professional motor sports have never been a solo pursuit. Drivers may
be alone in their vehicles, but they're backed up by huge teams of
mechanics and experts who watch and analyze their every move. The best
racers know they can push their car to the limit because the guys in
the pits are keeping it in perfect shape.

That relationship moves to a new level on Sunday, when two cars from
the Red Bull Cheever Racing team compete in the Indianapolis 500,
armed with a cutting-edge Internet Protocol-based wireless system that
gives the entire team access to a wealth of real-time information and
communications during the race.
