Mustang entry planned
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.”
