Andretti Global plans to build $200m headquarters in Indiana

The parent company of Andretti Autosport, Andretti Global, has declared that Fishers, Indiana will be the future location of its global racing headquarters.

Andretti Global is serious about the motorsport business as the organization, which aspires to compete in Formula 1, will construct a $200 million state-of-the-art motorsport center by 2025, housing all of its initiatives under one roof.

The FIA appears to be receptive to an 11th team despite opposition from the paddock, as the Andretti family’s ambition of acquiring an F1 team is well known. However, there is a general consensus that the Andretti Global Protect will eventually gain traction.

According to Racer, its expected that Andretti Global’s new 575,000 square foot facility will be completed in Fishers, Indiana, by 2025, which would be a good time frame if and when the F1 project proceeds.

The new building will “occupy around 90 acres alongside the developing Nickel Plate Trail, the Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve, and close to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Airport,” the team is cited as saying. By the beginning of 2026, the local economy would gain up to 500 jobs thanks to the new global headquarters.

According to Michael Andretti, the complex will house the organization’s global commercial operations as well as the team’s existing NTT IndyCar Series, Indy Lights, and IMSA programs as well as potential upcoming racing endeavors.

“Indiana holds an important place in the history of racing, and in my career as a driver and an owner,” said Chairman and CEO of Andretti Global, Michael Andretti. “I’m happy to confirm that the Racing Capital of the World will continue to be the home of our global racing efforts for a long time to come.”

“We’re excited about our plans for the new campus and looking forward to becoming a part of the Fishers community.”

“Over the past 20 years, I’ve worked to expand our operations and I’m proud of our steps to create a diverse racing portfolio.”

“Our current facility has served us well,” he added. “Our team has expanded in both competition and commercial areas and our people deserve the best environment and resources available. I’m excited to have so many of our teams under one roof as we continue to build and grow.”

“For us, it’s about more than just having somewhere to work on the cars; it’s about having a global motorsport home and sharing that with our people, our fans and our sponsors to advance the sport and leave a lasting legacy.”
