Corvette Racing’s C7.Rs are in Canada (eh!) this week for the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. On Wednesday, CTMP featured a live video on Facebook showing Ron Fellows and the No. 4 Corvette C7.R participating in a practice pit-stop demonstration.
The race team was at a Canadian Tire store in Bomanville, Ontario on Wednesday afternoon and performed the demonstrations as part of the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park RaceFest celebration.
As the CMTP cameras rolled, a light-hearted moment (or possible sabotage?) came as the C7.R started its pit stop, one of the compressed air tanks was shut off causing a tire gun to not work. That of course resulted in a really long timed stop that is uncharacteristic of the Pratt & Miller crew. Luckily, we got a mulligan and Ron roared forward once again in the C7.R and the crew performed the tire change flawlessly.
Here’s a video from the event and watch until the end for Dan Bink’s mea culpa on the gun issue:
