Autosport (UK) - - CLUB AUTOSPORT | NATIONAL NEWS - GARY WATKINS

The Mul­ti­matic squad that mas­ter­minds Ford’s World En­durance Cham­pi­onship as­sault is plan­ning a Bri­tish GT cam­paign in 2019.

Mul­ti­matic Mo­tor­sport, which races un­der the Ganassi ban­ner in the GTE Pro class of the WEC, ex­pects to run the Ford Mus­tang it has de­vel­oped for the GT4 cat­e­gory in the Bri­tish GT Cham­pi­onship’s sec­ondary class next year. A pair of cars would be run from its work­shops near Sil­ver­stone with Mul­ti­matic driv­ers Billy John­son and Scott Maxwell part of the line-up.

Mul­ti­matic rac­ing boss Larry Holt said he wanted to com­pete with the Mus­tang GT4 in Bri­tain to try to boost sales of the car in Europe.

“We’ve sold around 40 cars, but not many in Europe and only one in the UK, so we want to get the car out there to show it off,” he said. “We sold the car in the UK after we came up with the plan, but we’re push­ing on with it be­cause we like go­ing rac­ing.”
