Ron Fellows live on stage Saturday at the Cdn. Motorsports Expo

(TORONTO, ON // January 21, 2011) Ron Fellows, undoubtedly one of Canada’s most popular racing icons, will be on hand for a Question and Answer Fan Forum on Saturday January 22, 2011 at the Canadian Motorsports Expo.

Fellows, a true fan favourite – as demonstrated by his four consecutive American Le Mans Series Most Popular Driver awards – has been a staunch support of the CME since its inception five years ago.

Discussing his Saturday appearance at the CME, during a 1-hour session on the Keystone Light Stage (1:15 to 2:15 p.m.), fellows said, “As a racing fan, I’m thrilled to see the growth and success of the Canadian Motorsports Expo and I’m pleased to once again be included in the show. Congratulations to Glenn Butt and Inside Track Motorsports News on achieving five years of strictly motorsports.”

With an enviable record of success in a variety of racing disciplines, Fellows will be able to offer a unique, insider’s perspective to any fan’s inquiry regarding the North American motorsports scene.

His career achievements include 19 SCCA Trans-Am victories, 27 ALMS GT1 wins (in just 73 starts), 3 ALMS GT-1 championships, class victories in the 24 hour races in Daytona and Le Mans, plus five wins in NASCAR’s Truck and Nationwide Series.

One of the original members of the Corvette Factory Race Team, the Mississauga, ON resident brought the ‘Bowtie Brigade’ their first GT-1 victory in Texas, in 2000. His dedication to the Corvette racing effort was rewarded when, in 2007, Chevrolet introduced the limited edition, Ron Fellows ALMS GT-1 Champion Corvette ZO6; the first signed special edition in Corvette’s history. And in 2011, Ron Fellows will be inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame, located at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Fellows will take to the Canadian Motorsports Expo stage Saturday at 1:15 p.m., fielding questions and exchanging views and opinions with his legions of dedicated fans.
Other confirmed star racers at the CME include: Brad Keselowski (Sunday), Dario Franchitti (Saturday), Max Papis (Saturday) and many more.
