Sebastian Priaulx will make his U.S. racing debut in this week’s IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season finale at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, at the wheel of one of Multimatic’s Ford Mustang GT4s, which return to series competition.
The second-generation racer, the son of three-time WTCC champion and Multimatic Ford GT driver Andy, will share the No. 15 Mustang GT4 with Austin Cindric, with fellow Ford NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers Chase Briscoe and Cole Custer in the team’s No. 22 entry.
Priaulx is coming off his rookie season of GT4 competition in the British GT Championship, where he teamed with Multimatic development driver Scott Maxwell to finish second in the class championship with two class wins to their credit.
“I can’t wait for Road Atlanta!” the 18-year-old said. “I get to race the GT4 Mustang with the NASCAR guys at a track that I have heard so much about. It’s a new challenge for me as I have never even raced in the U.S. before.
“It’s an exciting challenge and I hope I can do a great job for everyone at Multimatic.”
Friday’s two-hour Fox Factory 120 will mark the fourth and final appearance for the Multimatic-entered Mustang GT4s that featured Ford’s NASCAR drivers.
NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series drivers Ben Rhodes, Grant Enfinger, Matt Crafton and Johnny Sauter most recently drove the cars at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in July.
