Capstone and GESS sign joint marketing agreement to further the awareness of biogas and RNG at 103rd Indianapolis 500

May 20, 2019. Capstone Turbine Corporation and Green Energy Sustainable Solutions, Inc. (GESS) have entered into a joint marketing agreement to further the awareness of biogas and renewable natural gas (RNG) as the fuel of the future at the 103rd Indianapolis 500.

   Capstone has agreed to join GESS in their partnership with Harding Steinbrenner Racing in a multi-race sponsorship of the #88 Honda-powered Indy car. Capstone and GESS will sponsor the #88 Honda-powered Indy car at the Indianapolis 500 and a variety of other races throughout the remainder of the 2019 IndyCar Series season under the terms of the joint marketing agreement. In 2019, IndyCar events will be distributed exclusively across NBC Group platforms in the USA. IndyCar reaches an audience of approximately 160 million people around the globe.

   Capstone and GESS were eager to grow their brands together in the NTT IndyCar Series with 19 year old rookie phenom, Colton Herta, and Harding Steinbrenner Racing in an effort to increase the overall awareness of biogas and RNG as a critical part of the new green economy and to help combat the effects of climate change caused by global warming.

   “Having GESS and Capstone on our car for the IndyCar Grand Prix was exciting, and we look forward to competing at the 103rd Indianapolis 500,” said co-owner of Harding Steinbrenner Racing, Mike Harding. “The GESS organization combined with Capstone microturbines make a formidable team who is looking to make major leaps in helping improve the earth with clean energy, and we’re honored to be a part of it all. I’m looking forward to our partnership with GESS and Capstone, and continuing to bring great results on the track,” added Mr. Harding.

   “We are very happy to have GESS, and now Capstone joins us as our sponsors for a multi-race deal,” said co-owner of Harding Steinbrenner Racing, George Michael Steinbrenner IV. “The renewable energy and biogas industries are becoming more and more prevalent in our society as people become aware of the implications of climate change. We are pleased that GESS and Capstone are looking to IndyCar and Harding Steinbrenner Racing to help expand their platform and build awareness around these important environmental issues,” added Mr. Steinbrenner IV.
