Corvette Racing announces the exciting re-unification of two remarkable race drivers, Ron Fellows and Andy Pilgrim, for the Grand Prix of Mosport to be held on August 26, 2007 at Mosport International Raceway in Bowmanville, Ontario.
Fellows and Pilgrim will be reunited for the ninth round of the American Le Mans Series near Fellows' home in Mississauga, Ontario.
Fellows' excitement was evident when he discussed his part of Corvette Racing history. Both drivers are thrilled to be running in Canada, since they raced together in Mosport in August 2000, finishing second on a track that presented many demanding circumstances both in slick and dry conditions. One month later, the pair won at Texas Motor Speedway scoring the first of many Corvette Racing victories.
The team wanted to salute Fellows and his many friends and supporters at Mosport. The dynamic duo will run in an Arctic White CR.6 that celebrates the limited edition Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Champion Corvette Z06.
Both Fellows and Pilgrim recalled their thrilling first race together on the fast 2.459-mile Canadian circuit. "The race at Mosport was the first time I'd driven with Ron, and we almost pulled off the first win for Corvette," Pilgrim recalls, "We had a good effort, but lost the lead late in the race."
Fellows stated that he had approached GM and guaranteed a win if they went to Mosport and although unlucky at the event due to the change in weather, Fellows added to Pilgrim's recollection, "...it made for a great race".
The two drivers are looking forward to the excitement of racing together again. Fellows and Pilgrim will be staging a tag-team effort at Mosport, driving the Arctic White CR.6 in the ALMS race and the Cadillac CTS-V race cars in the SCCA World Challenge GT event.
Fellows jokes with Pilgrim that they will "...be jogging together from paddock to paddock" and getting "...a taste of what I've been doing the last few years at Mosport."
Experience the exhilaration and excitement this duo re-enacts on Sunday August 26, 2007 at the Grand Prix of Mosport.
