Ron Fellows is wearing a very different suit this week.

Gone is the traditional driver’s fire suit plastered with sponsor names such as Canadian Tire, Sunoco, Compuware and Corvette.

In its place is an immaculately pressed white, short-sleeved, button-down shirt with the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park logo on the left-hand pocket, signifying his position as co-owner of the historic racing facility formerly known as Mosport.

Fellows was in this corporate mode on Wednesday pressing the flesh on a torridly hot afternoon in downtown Toronto at Yonge Dundas Square, promoting the Mobile 1 SportsCar Grand Prix at CTMP this weekend.

With the Honda Indy Toronto now in the rear view mirror, Canada’s biggest and most prestigious sport car race is dead ahead with at CTMP.

The American Le Mans Series will headline the three-day event and it will be the final chance for Canadians to witness this high-end circuit in its present form.
