IT services company DXC Technology has become a sponsor of the Shell V-Power Racing Team.

The Shell V-Power Racing Team — known as DJR Team Penske before Shell became the major sponsor — competes in the Supercars Championship.

US-based Team Penske and DXC Technology have an established relationship for the IndyCar Racing Series, where DXC worked with Team Penske's engineering and software programs to improve efficiency and productivity.

That relationship has now been extended to Australia.

"DXC Technology is proud to be named as an official DJR Team Penske partner and technology partner. From helping the team use data and analytics for visualising driving conditions to supporting application development, DXC will provide a wide variety of innovative technology solutions to Team Penske," said DXC Technology ANZ managing director Seelan Nayagam.

"As a brand, we are excited about our association with a team which mirrors everything DXC stands for – innovative, leading, fast-paced and agile. With 26 race events in 21 locations across six states in both Australia and New Zealand, we're looking forward to seeing our brand come to life with this winning team."

Shell V-Power Racing Team managing director Ryan Story said DXC's expertise would help in furthering the team's success.

"Our core business is motor racing, and one key attribute to success is recognising areas where you need assistance, and then filling the gaps," Story said.

"DXC is definitely going to assist in boosting our productivity and efficiency across the business, which can only contribute to additional success on the race track. We're very excited to welcome them into the fold."
