The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.R teams have arrived in the Great White North to do battle, aiming to keep their Grand Sport Manufacturing points lead in tact.
Stevenson Motorsports brought home a win in 2014, and thus far, they seem to be the story of 2015 as well. Driver Matt Bell was a major part of the winning lineup last year and also returns to hopefully keep the Camaro Z/28.R streak rolling.
And so far it has been.
Stevenson Motorsports has won three consecutive victories at Sebring, Laguna Seca and Watkins Glen. Winning this weekend at the Canadian Tire Motorsports park would leave the team tied for second place in the GS series’ record books for four victories in a row, according to PadlockTalk.
“Three victories in a row is a remarkable accomplishment for our Camaro Z/28.R program,” said Jim Lutz, Chevrolet Program Manager for the Camaro Z/28.R. “It’s encouraging that the Camaro has won on different types of tracks in different conditions. It shows that our Chevrolet engineers and partner teams are working cohesively at and away from the track. With the competitive regulations in place, we will need more of the same to score every point possible at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.”
The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.R shares many components with its road-going counterpart, making it an idea place to learn from motorsports for civilian vehicle programs. Those components include the 7.0-liter LS7 engine, front splitter and rear wickerbill, hood extractor vent and belly pan.
The race will take place this Saturday at 1:25 pm Eastern time at the 10-turn circuit.
