Pole and a Podium For Multimatic In Texas

AUSTIN, Texas (September 18th, 2015) – Circuit of the Americas (COTA) has been good to Multimatic Motorsports as the team’s Boss302Rs owned the front row in 2014 and then followed-up with another pole and podium for the new Shelby GT350R-C in 2015. Although not quite capable of stealing the win from the #6 Stevenson Camaro, the #15 Multimatic Mustang finished on the rear bumper of the championship leading car, showing superior pace towards the end of the race but ultimately running out of time to capitalize on it. After spending the weeks...

Road America Not Kind to Multimatic Motorsports

ELKHART LAKE, Wisconsin (August 8th, 2015) – After winning two Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSC) events in a row at CTMP and Lime Rock Park – a 1-2 finish at the latter – Multimatic entered the Road America round with trepidation, knowing full well that the Balance of Performance (BOP) that had been leveled at the new Shelby GT350R-C was not going to be kind at the famed ‘power track.’ The only solace being that the Chevy Camaros that had dominated the 2014 event were in the same boat. And so it was; the normal...

Strong Debut for Shelby GT350R-C With Pole and Double Top-Ten

WATKINS GLEN, New York (June 28, 2015) – Atrocious weather conditions resulted in a red flag being thrown with over 30 minutes remaining in an extremely soggy Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSC) race at the famous, but badly drained, ex-Grand Prix circuit. Although pole position in the GT350R-C Mustang’s competition debut illustrated the strong pace of the new car, a lack of wet weather testing put the Multimatic Motorsports’ entries on the back foot for Saturday’s almost nautical two and half hour event. Scott Maxwell secured...

MONTEREY, California (May 2, 2015) – Billy Johnson was on a mission during the closing stages of the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix as he carved his way through the field to finish just one step off the top of the podium. The #15 Multimatic Mustang Boss 302R appeared to have fallen out of contention when the team took advantage of a late yellow with less than 40 minutes remaining in the race. The decision to take a full set of tires dropped Johnson to P8 but the strategy proved brilliant as he was able to use the fresh rubber to easily...

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (January 23, 2015) – Multimatic Motorsports suffered an up-and-down 2014 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSC) that saw a lot of bad luck and wrecked machinery but also an impressive double-podium at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, ownership of the front row at COTA and a huge win by Billy Johnson and Ian James to end the season at Road Atlanta.
