Motorsports Overview

Multimatic Motorsports is the competition arm of Multimatic Engineering, one of Canada’s largest and most successful engineering organizations.

For Multimatic, motorsport is a high-speed laboratory where innovative engineering, creative thinking, and rapid problem solving are imperative for success. Motorsport provides an excellent opportunity for Multimatic to create and test new technologies that can be transferred to production-oriented projects.

Motorsport activities provide Multimatic with:

  • A platform for developing chassis and suspension technologies in rigorous environments under challenging time constraints
  • A focused environment where the company’s vehicle-dynamics and suspension-development teams can enhance their knowledge and develop new and innovative concepts
  • An excellent showcase for the company’s proprietary technologies and engineering know-how
  • Business opportunities in the design, development, construction, engineering and campaigning of race vehicles

Multimatic Motorsports programs encompass car design/build, track support and turn-key competition management, and the team’s primary test track is the 5.05-kilometer Calabogie Motorsports Park — the longest road course in Canada — near Ottawa, Ontario.

Since its racing debut in 1992, Multimatic Motorsports has established itself as Canada’s premier motorsport organization, contesting and winning races across North America and around the globe. Multimatic Motorsports celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2017.

Multimatic Motorsports is the only Canadian race team to have won at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, capturing the LMP 675 class victory in 2000. Other notable victories include the Daytona Prototype class win at the Rolex 24 Hours At Daytona in 2003, and the GT2 win at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2006.
