Honda have pulled off a major coup by entering into a long term engine supply deal with Chip Ganassi Racing in the Verizon IndyCar Series.

It was confirmed earlier today that after three seasons and one championship with Chevrolet, Chip Ganassi Racing will return to Honda power from next season onwards. Honda have secured one of the biggest and most successful teams in the Verizon IndyCar Series.

Honda had an extremely tough 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series winning just one race with Alexander Rossi winning the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 in May for Andretti Herta Autosport.

The new partnership reunites 2015 champion Scott Dixon with Honda and with a four car team Honda will be able to gather plenty of data.

The deal with Honda is the first of a number of announcements expected from Chip Ganassi Racing over the coming months in preparation for the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series. Chip Ganassi Racing won their first Verizon IndyCar Series championship with Honda in 1996 when Jimmy Vasser won the championship.
