The i-Moto Mazda driver will compete full-time in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.
Altamonte Springs, FL – Virginia native and Grand-Am Road Racing driver Ryan Ellis aided I-Moto Racing last season when the team won both the 2012 Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series Team and Driver Championships, respectively. The then part-time I-Moto driver became a full-timer when he was picked up in the offseason by the team to try to make it two in a row in 2013. Now, the P1 Groupe represented driver has a full-time home for the upcoming season and his eye on the ultimate prize, a Street Tuner championship.
“After a very successful test earlier in the month, I think our entire I-Moto Racing team has very high expectations for Daytona and the 2013 season as a whole” Ellis stated. “Mat and I have our sights set on the championship and really believe that we can use Daytona to push ourselves into position where we can contend for just that. We know our team has put in the hard work in the offseason and our MazdaSPEED3's look great. Now it's our turn to race the car into contention and end up on the top step of the podium!”
Ellis and I-Moto Racing will be on track at Daytona International Speedway Friday, January 25th for their two and half hour opening event. The Daytona 200 will begin promptly at 1:45pm ET. Television dates and times will be shared when that information becomes known. Stay tuned for updates!
