Team i-MOTO Mazda Signs Ryan Ellis for 2013 Season


CORAL SPRINGS, FL (December 7th, 2012) – 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.

Ryan responded by regularly placing the #30 at the top of the CTSCC field, including a near-victory at Indianapolis. 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.
