Pi Group became the first – and one of only two in the history of the competition – to win the awards twice with this success. Founder Tony Purnell had extended the company’s global reach across transport industries reliant on hi-tech innovation. When in 1999 the company was bought by the Ford Motor Company, Purnell became a multi-millionaire. Still under Purnell's management, Pi Research was made part of Ford's Premiere Performance Division alongside Cosworth and the Jaguar Formula One team. In 2010, Purnell was part of the IndyCar Series' ICONIC committee which chose new engine and chassis specifications for the 2012 season.
