Pat joined the Communications Department of FCA/ Chrysler Group LLC in 2012 as the Media and PR Manager for the Mopar brand and it’s motorsports interests.
Her motorsports and automotive industry experience was developed over more than a decade of specializing in the media relations and management consultant aspects of the IndyCar racing world. Ms. Caporali has worked with Player’s Forsythe Racing, Target Chip Ganassi Racing, Vision Racing, and the FAZZT Race Team, after honing her skills on the flipside.
Formerly a Canadian sports reporter for CTV in her hometown of Montreal, Caporali spent many years

working in both radio (CIQC and CJAD/Mix96) and TV (CFCF12 and Réseau Des Sports), covering the Montreal Canadiens (NHL), Montreal Alouettes (CFL), Montreal Expos (MLB), Boxing, amateur sports and the Canadian motorsports racing scene.
A Bachelor of Arts in Communications Studies earned at Concordia University as well as studies at McGill University, Université de Montréal, and Champlain College helped prepare Caporali for the practical aspects and demands of a career in Media and Public Relations.
But it was endless childhood hours spent hearing racing stories and watching racing (and hockey) with her Italian father, as well as her Austrian mum’s push to get her physically involved in sports, that helped spark the passion for sport and competition that led her on her path.
In her spare time, Caporali is a self proclaimed foodie and can be found behind a camera, on motorized two wheels, on top of a rock formation or under water, when not visiting her family and flock of feathered friends (including two very talkative African Grey Parrots named Reno and Zooey) in her home and native land of Canada.
Specialties: Years of experience and knowledge of racing, knowledge of media in both US & Canadian markets, professional business relationships with various leagues, sponsors, teams and drivers, as well as advanced skills in social media, brand development and crisis management.
Experience in Racing: IndyCar & Indy Lights Series, Grand Am Sports Car Series, NASCAR Sprint Cup & Nationwide Series
