Multimatic Mustangs to British GT

The American racecar builder Multimatic Motorsports has entered a pair of it’s stunning Ford Mustang GT4’s into the 2019 British GT Championship.

Multimatic is the engineering brains behind the development and construction of the Ford GTE spec cars that are run by Chip Ganassi Racing in WEC and IMSA, so they know a thing or two about how to build and race fast Fords.

Ford regular Billy Johnson, along with fellow 2016 IMSA GS Champion Scott Maxwell, will bring Mustang driving knowhow to one of the cars, while British F4 race winner – son of current Ford Chip Ganassi Racing driver AndySeb Priaulx will be joined with a yet to be announced driver in the second of the Fords.

Speaking about the switch to British GT, Priaulx said, “Looking forward to every new racing season is always exciting, and for me, the 2019 one can’t start soon enough,”

The opportunity to race in British GT is fantastic. Also to be with such a great team is something every driver dreams of, and I know I shall learn an awful lot from being part of such a professional outfit.

“I have seen what a competitive championship British GT is and know it will be tough, but I enjoyed the test in the Mustang, and I can’t wait to get out there and race!”

The charismatic boss at Multimatic, Larry Holt added, “British GT is a fantastic platform to show off our product to potential customers, so we’re excited to go head-to-head with the GT4 cars from companies like Aston Martin, McLaren and Mercedes.

“We have put together an incredible group of people and resources to run the Ford GTs in WEC and will combine those with the North American Multimatic team to expand our racing programme here in England.

“Seb was extremely impressive in the Mustang when we tested him at Snetterton, and I can’t think of a better story than bringing on the next generation of Priaulx. He will learn a lot from Billy and Scott, including how to drift properly!”
