Corvette Racing ambassador Ron Fellows stopped by the CTV television studios with the #4 Corvette C6.R for this segment which was featured on the Canada AM morning television show. After a tire change demonstration by the crew, the air guns were turned over to the female hosts of the show, Marci Ien and Marcia MacMillan, so they could make their own attempt. Dressed in fire suits and high heels, the girls learned first hand the process for changing a tire in the American Le Mans Series.

Momentum Matters as Chevrolet Team Drives for Repeat Victory in ALMS Grand Prix of Mosport
BOWMANVILLE, Ontario, Canada, July 17, 2012 – By any other name, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park – the track formerly known as Mosport – would still be as fast. With its roots firmly anchored in the ’60s and its character unchanged for more than 50 years, the 2.5-mile circuit in the Canadian countryside near Toronto is decidedly Old School. With daunting high-speed corners and soaring straights, it is not a track for the timid – which is why Corvette Racing’s drivers relish their return to the historic 10-turn circuit for Sunday’s Mobil 1 presents the Grand Prix of Mosport.
By definition, a supernova is the explosion of a star during which the star’s luminosity can increase by up to 20 times and most of the star’s mass is blown away at a high velocity. By our definition, a Corvette racecar can explode around treacherous racing circuits at equally high velocities. Here’s your chance to buy a 1964 Corvette racer dubbed Supernova at Russo and Steele’s upcoming auction in Monterey, California next month.

American Le Mans Series Returns to Series’ Shortest Track for Rough-and-Tumble Fourth Round
LAKEVILLE, Conn. – With the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the rearview mirror, Corvette Racing is now driving for the American Le Mans Series GT championship. The series’ fourth round, the American Le Mans Northeast Grand Prix, will be contested on Saturday, July 7, in the tight confines of Lime Rock Park.
