Chevrolet has reassigned current IndyCar program manager Chris Berube to an engineering position at its Milford Proving Grounds in Michigan, Road & Track reports. Berube served as the head of Team Chevy’s IndyCar ventures since it re-entered the open-wheel racing series in 2012 and helped the manufacturer lock down a Manufacturer’s championship over Honda every year since.
Berube will now be the Engineering Group Manager–Test Engineering & Systems for the Global Vehicle Dynamics Center at Milford. A successor has yet to be named, however considering the large shoes they have to fill, it seems likely it could be an industry veteran or someone with a wealth of knowledge in regards to IndyCar.
Most recently, Berube helped Chevrolet on its way to a dominant Manufacturer’s title in the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season. The automaker and its 2.2-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine and newly implemented aero kit won 10 out of 16 races and scored 16 of 16 pole positions for its most dominant season in the series yet. Team Chevy’s Scott Dixon also won the Driver’s championship, while Juan Pablo Montoya put the American manufacturer in the winner’s circle in the 99th running of the Indy 500.
