Chip Ganassi unveils Alex Palou's livery for 2024 IndyCar

Chip Ganassi Racing has unveiled an updated livery for Alex Palou’s car for the 2024 IndyCar season

Chip Ganassi Racing and its new title sponsor DHL have revealed the new livery for reigning NTT IndyCar Series champion Alex Palou’s No. 10 Honda ahead of the 2024 season.

Palou is set to defend his second championship while sporting the well-known DHL colors, although the original livery that has regularly featured on DHL-sponsored cars in previous years has been modified.

This comes after CGR and DHL Express signed a multi-year agreement early in December, confirming the global shipping and logistics company as the team’s main partner for its No. 10 entry.

Palou’s car stands out from the crowd with its bold usage of red, contrasting with the sponsor’s colour as the company is prominent for sponsoring cars that use yellow, which matches the colour of its delivery trucks.

The #10 car is designed in a way that makes it appear like it is mostly yellow from the side and primarily red up front. While the usual yellow is only used on the wings and sidepods rather than the entire car, the main cockpit and Aeroscreen both sport the deep red from the brand’s logo.

“As everybody can see, this is quite the amazing livery,” Palou said. “The No. 10 DHL Honda looks very aggressive, and it will certainly stand out on the track, which is great.

“I can’t wait to start the season with a run in this livery at Sebring before we kick things off in St. Pete.

“It’s looking like the perfect livery to try to defend our title in 2024 and I cannot wait to deliver on-track here soon.”

DHL makes its sponsorship debut with Chip Ganassi Racing for the 2024 campaign following its split from Andretti Global at the end of the previous season. The partnership with the latter had been continuous since the 2011 season, and the livery had remained relatively unchanged over the past 12 years.

Despite the split, Andretti Global and DHL enjoyed great success together, particularly in the early going as Ryan Hunter-Reay drove the team to the 2012 IndyCar championship and the 2014 Indianapolis 500 victory.

The company also supports Jamie Chadwick, a three-time W-Series winner and driver for the Indy NXT program. Chadwick serves as an ambassador for the multinational logistics company.

The new livery will be run for the first time during the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on March 10 which kicks off the 2024 IndyCar Series.
