He is one of North America’s most versatile race car drivers. On June 16-17 Fellows piloted a Corvette C6R with K&N Engineering Products to a runner-up finish in the GT1 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Cadillac CTS-V is equipped with a K&N Oil Filter (HP-1007).

Team Cadillac will start the second half of the 10-race series from a position of strength. It is leading the manufacturer’s championship by two points over Chevrolet, nine points over Porsche and 17 over Dodge.

“At least I’ll get to sleep in my own bed for the Toronto race,” said Fellows. “I’ve got a 20-minute drive to the Toronto track from my home in Mississauga. It’s always good fun to race the Cadillac CTS-V and racing at home just makes it better.” The Toronto circuit is new to the SPEED GT series, but its familiar territory for Fellows. He won there in the GM Player’s Challenge and drove Trans-Am machines on the temporary course at Exhibition Place.

“The track layout has changed a little, but it’s essentially the same circuit that I’ve raced on in the past,” said Fellows. “It’s a very traditional street circuit with a good mix of corners and some tricky combinations of turns. Like most street races, there’s not a lot of grip, but there are at least three good places to pass, under braking going into Turn 1 and Turn 3, and accelerating up the hill into Turn 5 if the car is putting the power down well. It’s a little tricky, but I’ve done it.”

SPEED GT is scheduled to start at 5:25 EDT on Sunday, July 8. The race will be televised on Saturday, July 14 at noon EDT on the SPEED Channel.
