Stocks in this article: LFUS

Littelfuse, Inc. (NASDAQ:LFUS), the global leader in circuit protection, today announced it will co-sponsor the No. 11 MOUSER ELECTRONICS/GEICO/KV Racing Technology Chevrolet Dallara driven by Indy Racing League champion Tony Kanaan at several events during the 2012 IZOD ® IndyCar race season. Littelfuse and its distribution partner Mouser Electronics are co-sponsoring races in Indianapolis, Ind., (May 27), Fort Worth, Texas, (June 9), Qingdao, China, (August 19), and Sonoma, Calif., (August 26). In addition, Littelfuse will be present at the season finale race at Fontana, Calif., (September 15).

Littelfuse kicked off its IndyCar promotion this past weekend at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, Calif., April 15, 2012. KV Racing Technology driver Tony Kanaan finished fourth on the two-mile street circuit course, improving 15 positions after starting in the 19 th position and earning 32 points in the championship tally. Kanaan clocked the fastest lap in the race with a time of 69.3541 seconds.

“The Indy racing series is a great opportunity for us to partner with Mouser Electronics and to build awareness of our brand as a global leader in circuit protection. Racing demands the very highest level of performance, durability, engineering ingenuity and safety. Our customers rely on us to meet these same requirements in protecting their products and brands,” said Gordon Hunter, President and CEO of Littelfuse. “We are excited to engage with our customers and with the design engineering community in this truly thrilling environment.”

Littelfuse will be leveraging its sponsorship with a series of design-engineer focused events at its five sponsored races. The events include visiting with KV Racing’s pit crew and talking with engineers about auto racing technology.

“We’ve created a once-in-a-lifetime IndyCar experience,” said Hunter. “Along with attending the race, the weekend includes pit access, hospitality and exclusive conversations with the team engineers and crew members. The activities are designed to explore the many facets of the fascinating racecar engineering, along with how Littelfuse technology is connected to high performance circuit protection.”
