Thursday February 6 2020: McLaren Racing today announced that Automation Anywhere has extended its partnership to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES with the Arrow McLaren SP team.
As part of the partnership, Automation Anywhere, a leader in intelligent automation, will work closely with Arrow McLaren SP to drive performance at the racetrack through workflow and analysis of racing data, to improve race strategy and team operations.
