New Multimatic Motorsports Team Panoz Livery
This is how the Multimatic Motorsports Team Panoz Panoz Esperantes
will look this season, as they embark on a high profile assault
on the GT2 Class of the ALMS.
new scheme was designed in-house and was seen on track for the first
time last week at Road Atlanta, as team regulars Scott Maxwell,
David Brabham, Gunnar Jeannette and Tom Milner put the two Esperante
GT2 entries through their paces in preparation for the upcoming
Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
The four Multimatic regulars will be joined by Newman-Haas
Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais and Bruno Junqueira next week.
"Testing has gone extremely well and I am very
pleased with the progress that the team has made," said Multimatic
Vice President and Motorsports Technical Director, Larry Holt.
"Taking over the Panoz factory program and
incorporating it into our Toronto-based team has been a significant
undertaking, but everything has run extremely smoothly so far.
when we arrive at Sebring we will see exactly how we are placed
relative to the opposition. We are fully aware of the challenge
ahead but our intention is to be a serious contender for the championship.”
at Sebring, the Esperantes have been right on the pace of those
rivals which have been on track at the same time.
with the unveiling of the new livery, Multimatic Motorsports Team
Panoz has launched a new dedicated section on the www.multimaticmotorsports.com
website, to focus on its 2006 American Le Mans Series efforts.
The team has
included its own podcast radio show – downloadable from the
team website or the Apple ITunes Music Store.
"The podcast is great for race fans to be able
to catch up with all the behind the scenes news each month,"
said Gunnar Jeannette.
