In 1992, Multimatic Motorsports won the sports class of the Canadian Firestone Firehawk Championship, running a factory-supported Ford Taurus SHO. The driver was Scott Maxwell and during the season he took six race wins on his way to the driver’s championship and securing the nascent organisation its first team championship.
Over the past three decades, Multimatic Motorsports has been a driving force both on and off the track, boasting top level professional race teams who deliver for Multimatic and its customers, and exceptional engineers who create championship-winning race cars.
In recent years, Multimatic Motorsports has become well-known for its successes with Ford, building and racing both the Ford GT and Mustang, as well as being the engineering and operational team behind Mazda’s DPi success.
In 2022 the focus falls on testing and development for future race programmes. That said, Multimatic Motorsports goes into its 30th anniversary season with a good mix of racing activities on the schedule to keep its roster of professional drivers at the top of their game, starting with this month’s Rolex 24 At Daytona.
Harry Tincknell will return to the LMP2 field, racing the #11 PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca at the twice-around-the-clock classic.
Reigning Porsche Carrera Cup North America Champion, Sebastian Priaulx will also be on track at Daytona as he takes a seat with the Sean Creech Motorsports team, racing the #33 LMP3 car.
Dirk Müller will race the #15 WeatherTech Mercedes-AMG GT3, alongside long time Multimatic associate Austin Cindric and Patrick Assenheimer, in the new GTD Pro class. This is a Proton Competition entry with support from the Multimatic Motorsports crew as Proton runs out of the team’s Mooresville, NC workshop.
What comes after Daytona for Multimatic Motorsports will be announced in the coming weeks.
