CORAL SPRINGS, FL – 2012 GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, (CTSCC) Street Tuner Champions Team i-MOTO Mazda announced the signing of Ryan Ellis for the 2013 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series.
After very successful 2011 and 2012 seasons that included three wins and a series Championship podium, Ryan’s talent caught the eye of team owner Glenn Bocchino.
When Ryan’s full-time ride fell thru mid-season last year, Glenn quickly signed him to be his closer for the remainder of the season, a position that was open due to an unfortunate injury to Taylor Hacquard.
Now entering his fifth professional road racing season, Ryan, 23, will begin 2013 paired with Mathew Pombo and piloting the #30 Team i-MOTO Mazdaspeed3.
Team owner Glenn Bocchino commented about the signing, “Ryan is a very impressive young driver, he is usually among the fastest drivers on our team and rarely makes a mistake. The kid has proven he is the real deal!”
Ryan commented, “The second half of last season I learned first-hand what a great team Glenn had assembled here at i-MOTO Mazda. There was never any doubt in my mind that I wanted to return there for 2013”.
Come visit the team at the Daytona International Speedway January 4th - 6th 2013 at the annual Roar Before the Rolex 24 test week.
