Mosport International Karting to honour Canadian racing legend
BOWMANVILLE, ONTARIO -- Canadian roadracer, Ron Fellows is to be honoured this weekend at the Mosport International Karting Academy with a corner -- corner 7 -- named after him. The new name for what is now referred to as the 'bowl' turn will be "The Ron Fellows Bowl".
"Ron Fellows has accomplished many great things in racing," Ken Flute, managing director of Mosport International Karting said. "From the top levels of the sport, all the way down to the roots of racing -- karting -- Ron continues to leave his mark as a great Canadian. We are very proud here at Mosport International Karting to be able to honour him with 'The Ron Fellows Bowl' as part of our karting track.
The Mosport International Karting Academy is located on the outside of turn 8 of Mosport International Raceway, and The Ron Fellows Bowl is widely regarded as the toughest section of the track. Fellows will be on hand this weekend as he does battle in the C6 Compuware Corvette in the ALMS Series, and in the factory Cadillac CTS-V in the Speed GT Championship.
In addition, the fifth round of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels will be in action this weekend at the Mosport Driver Development track.
"I want to thank Ken Flute and Mosport International Karting for the renaming of the 'bowl' to 'The Ron Fellows Bowl'," Fellows said. "Mosport is my home track, and the new karting complex, where we ran round four of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship, is a fantastic facility."
