The Latest from Ilmor
Hello Ilmor Fans!  Spring is just around the corner, and that means racing and boating seasons are here!  Check out the latest news from Ilmor below, including the start of an exciting new IndyCar Season and the launch of Ilmor's new 'One Drive' Sterndrive Package.
2016 IndyCar Season Kicks Off This Weekend
It's that time of year again!  The first race of the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Season, and Team Ilmor and Team Chevy are ready to win!

The 2015 IndyCar season was incredible.  We won the Indy 500 among our 10 race victories, the Manufacturer's and Driver's Championships, and took pole position at every race.  2016 looks to be just as exciting.  With 18 races from March to September, Chevy and Ilmor teams will be flat out at every style of track, including new venues at Phoenix, Road America and Boston.   Plus, this year is the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, possibly the most important race we will witness in our lifetimes! 

So don't miss out on the action!  This weekend starts off the excitement at the Streets of St. Petersburg on March 13.  Be sure to cheer for Team Ilmor and Team Chevy at 12:30pm eastern on ABC.

Introducing the Ilmor 'One Drive'

We proudly unveiled our new recreational sterndrive propulsion package, the 'One Drive,'  at the Miami International Boat Show this February.  Paired with our existing MV8 6.0L and 6.2L engines, we are ready to tackle the recreational bowrider and cruiser markets with a comprehensive powertrain solution for single and twin drive configurations.
 "When we crafted the Ilmor 'One Drive' package, we wanted to give recreational boaters a driving experience never before offered in gasoline powered boats," says Ilmor president, Paul Ray. "We wanted to improve the technology, rising above traditional noisy cone clutch systems for a smooth and quiet shift, and a ride quality much more akin to luxury road cars.  The 'One Drive' will offer boat owners overall improved performance, acceleration and efficiency - everything you could ask for, all in a beautiful package."
The most exciting feature of the 'One Drive' propulsion system is the electro-magnetically actuated hydraulic clutch transmission, which gives our drive a smooth and silent shift experience, especially noticeable in twin engine configurations.  On twin engine boats, we offer the optional 'One Touch' joystick system for easy vessel maneuverability at low speeds, especially for docking.  The Ilmor 'One Drive' system is covered by a 5-year factory backed limited warranty, and is already available for order through select boat manufacturing partners. 
To demonstrate our new 'One Drive' and 'One Touch' systems at the show, we partnered with Formula Boats:  "Our team at Formula is thrilled to partner with Ilmor in the launch of the 'One Drive' and to expand Ilmor product offerings into our hugely popular Sun Sport and CBR models," said Scott Porter, president of Formula Boats.  "Ilmor has been very professional and a pleasure to deal with, which is what you would expect from a Penske-owned company.  We have paired the robust, saltwater resistant 430 HP 'One Drive' in a twin application in a Formula 350 CBR which is performing fantastically well and exceeding expectations.  With super smooth hydraulic shifting, the 'One Touch' joystick docking system is the icing on the cake."
And the response from customers and the press mirror Formula's reaction.  Check out some of the stories and videos here:
