Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A delegation of business and community leaders led by Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard departed for Europe Nov. 14 on a nine-day economic development mission to help grow the city’s motorsports industry.

The group will meet with business leaders, government officials and researchers in Cologne, Germany, and the United Kingdom through Nov. 23.

Ballard will meet first with city leaders in Cologne, one of Indianapolis’ sister cities, in an effort to enhance growing partnerships with local and international businesses based in the German city, Ballard said in a prepared release.

The delegation also will work to create partnerships with U.K.-based motorsport companies—including manufacturing, retail, research and race shops—to build on Indianapolis’ and the United Kingdom’s reputations as leaders in the motorsports industry, according to the mayor.

Companies the group plans to meet with include Manard Competition Technologies, Aston Martin and Warwick Manufacturing.
