INDIANAPOLIS—Hurco Companies, Inc., is exhibiting four machines for the estimated 25,000 racing industry professionals who plan to attend this year’s International Motorsports Industry Show (IMIS), which starts today and runs through Saturday in Indianapolis.This is the first year Hurco has participated in IMIS, which debuted in 2010.
“Hurco decided to participate in IMIS this year for several reasons. Indianapolis is the home of Hurco’s international headquarters and we have had a partnership with Indianapolis race team Panther Dreyer and Reinbold (DRR) for two years, which includes the use of Hurco CNC machine tools in their Indianapolis machine shop. In addition to DRR, we have numerous customers who rely on Hurco machine tools to make parts for the motorsports industry and we believe IMIS will be a great opportunity to showcase how the integrated control on our machine tools gets machinists from print to part faster. According to an economic impact study to be released today at IMIS, motorsports is responsible for more than 23,000 direct jobs in Indiana and has an indirect impact that creates 421,000 jobs. Additionally, motorsports companies are connected to other sectors including aerospace and orthopedics,” said a Hurco spokesperson.
At IMIS, Hurco will showcase the VM5i, VM10UHSi, VMX42HSi, and TMX8MYSi at Booth 2401. In addition to the customized Hurco Race Car supplied by DRR that will be on display, visitors to the Hurco booth will have the chance to win a VIP Track Experience Package at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as the guest of racing partner DRR. Other attractions at the Hurco booth include appearances from the DRR team, including driver Oriol Servia, DRR hat giveaways, and commemorative DRR mini-helmet giveaways.
