CANADA'S RON FELLOWS NAMED MOST POPULAR AMERICAN LE MANS SERIES DRIVER FOR THE FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR
(BOWMANVILLE, ON -- OCTOBER 24, 2007) The fans have spoken, and for the fourth year in a row Ron Fellows is the Most Popular Driver of the prestigious American Le Mans Series. The award is yet another special honour the 48 year-old Mississauga, Ontario native and Corvette Racing driver has collected recently. Earlier this year, General Motors announced a limited edition Corvette named after him- the Ron Fellows Z06 Corvette- and he also received a custom designed guitar from PRS Guitars.
The Most Popular Driver Award was one of two honours presented to Fellows at the annual season-ending banquet following the Monterey Sports Car Championships in California. Fellows also took home a specially commissioned Corvette painting, awarded by American Le Mans Series founder Dr. Don Panoz in recognition of the efforts Fellows and his wife Lynda made at the Le Petit Elegance charity fundraiser at Petit Le Mans earlier this month. Fellows wore a specially designed pink race helmet that he signed and was auctioned off after the race with the proceeds going to Emory University School of Medicine's Department of Surgery and its Program for Breast Cancer Research, based in Atlanta.
Fellows has competed at every American Le Mans Series race at Mosport (his home track) since 2000. In 2008, the American Le Mans Series returns for their only Canadian event as part of the Mobil 1 presents the Grand Prix of Mosport, August, 21-24.
