Who would have guessed that PLM software could have any kind of connection to Danica Patrick’s historic win of the IndyCar Series race in Japan. Patrick, part of Andretti Green Racing, won her first IndyCar Series race—the Indy Japan 300–at Twin Ring Motegi in Motegi, Japan late last month, becoming the first woman to do so. So here’s the connection: AGR cars are developed with the help of Siemens PLM Software and the company is a sponsor of Patrick.
