Scott Maxwell has been a key member of the Multimatic Motorsports team for three decades. The Canadian racing driver, who was inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame in 2015, has won championship titles in Formula Vee (1984), Ontario Formula Ford 1600 (1985), Canadian National Formula Ford (1986), Canadian National Showroom Stock (1992 and 1993), and Grand-Am/IMSA GS (2002, 2008, 2016).
Maxwell’s early career includes starts in the Canadian GM Challenge, Porsche Cup, Pro Formula Ford 2000, Formula 3000, and Indy Lights but the highlight of his career came at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2000, when he won the LMP675 class for Multimatic Motorsports in a Lola B2K/40 with fellow Canadians John Graham and Greg Wilkins.
Highlights of the 2000s were taking the 2002 Grand-Am Cup Championship winner in a Multimatic-run Porsche GT3 Cup, winning the first ever Daytona Prototype race at the Rolex 24 Hours in 2003 and taking the GT2 class win at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2006. In 2008, the Ford Racing FR500C, engineered and developed by Multimatic, won all three championships in the Grand-Am KONI Challenge, which included another drivers championship for Maxwell.
Maxwell’s primary role at Multimatic is to be the development driver for new competition cars. He developed the Ford Racing Boss 302R in 2010 before the car won in his hands in 2011 and it was Maxwell’s expertise and experience that helped to develop the GT4 Aston Martin Vantage V8 for Grand-Am GS competition. His legacy at Multimatic though will be the development work he did on all three versions of the Ford GT: the road car, race car and the Mk II track car.
The Canadian’s most recent championship win is the 2016 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Championship GS title, which he took in the Multimatic Motorsports developed and run Ford Shelby GT350R-C. In 2019 he came close to winning the British GT Championship in Multimatic’s Ford Mustang GT4, just getting squeezed into the runner-up spot at the final round.
The Maxwell/Multimatic partnership is the longest-standing driver/team relationship in motorsport.
