It's Bia At D&R

Dreyer & Rienbold Racing has finally announced their second driver for the 2011 IndyCar Season. The #24 car will be piloted by Ana Beatriz for the full season schedule. 'Bia', as she is more commonly refered to in the media and the paddock, ran four races for D&R last year.

Prior to 2010, the soon-to-be twenty-six year old Brazilian drove for two seasons in Indy Lights, notching one victory each year.

"I'm definitely thrilled to have my deal done with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and Ipiranga (a Brazilian petroleum products co. that will be her primary sponsor) ," Beatriz told reporters."It's a dream come true that this has all come together. Last year was important for me to run four races to get adjusted and for this year I feel more prepared than ever.  It's great to be back at D&RR; they know me already and what it takes to make me grow as a driver."

With Beatriz joining veteran driver - and proven race winner - Justin Wilson, team co-owner Robbie Buhl is excited about D&R's prospects for 2011. "I think this is the best focus we've had in years. We've put ourselves in another great position to have two very competitive entries and we couldn't be happier."
