Montecalvo Joins Multimatic Grand-Am Team


KEASBEY, N.J. – Bayshore Racing driver Frankie Montecalvo will pilot an Aston Martin Vantage for Multimatic Motorsports in the 2013 Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car championship season.

Montecalvo is co-driving the No. 16 Multimatic Motorsports Aston Martin Vantage with Nick Mancuso for the 12-race schedule. The duo will compete in the season opener next week at the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Grand-Am 200 at Daytona Int’l Speedway on Jan. 25.

Multimatic Motorsports and Montecalvo have solid racing history together. Montecalvo first started racing for the Canadian company in 2010 aboard the Mustang BOSS 302 with co-driver Gunnar Jeannette. Then in 2012, Montecalvo transitioned into Multimatic Motorsports’ Ford Focus ST for a partial season, in addition to competing for Bayshore Racing overseas in FIA-WEC.

The 2013 season marks the second year Multimatic Motorsports has campaigned the Aston Martin Vantages. Montecalvo took part in the Roar Before the Rolex 24 test at Daytona Int’l Speedway earlier this month where he made his first laps in the race car. All three Multimatic Aston Martins completed the test in the top-10.
