"Celebration of Motorsports" race meeting at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park is the venue for the final round of the Formula Prototype Challenge Canada (FPCC) this weekend, where Alan Shaw will be crowned the inaugural champion.
Shaw, has enjoyed a consistent season, securing two wins and three p2's leaving him with an unassailable lead entering the final round. The highlight of the season has to be the battle Shaw and Labbee had in July at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park where they shared a win apiece having battled nose to tail and swapping the lead throughout both races.
Rilli Racing, are fielding three Revolution 427's this weekend and have two very notable and famous debutant drivers. Joining Shaw on the grid will be former Olympian and three time World Champion figure skater Elvis Stojko and three time Motorsport Champion Bruno St-Jacques.
Elvis, having conquered the figure skating world scene, has switched his compeitive spirit to motorsport. He is pursuing a second sporting career as a driver with the ultimate goal to race LMP prototypes and possibly compete at Le Mans. Racing a Revolution Race Car therefore is an obvious step for his career progression with the UK manufactured prototype being an ideal feeder into LMP Le Mans racers. Elvis is racing this weekend in the FPCC ahead of his debut in Europe in the next round of the Sports Prototype Cup at Spa.
A perpetual motorsport Winner, Bruno is well known in Canada. Bruno has loved motor racing since birth. Tagging along with his dad, who built and raced Formula Ford, Bruno grew up at race tracks.
Bruno has competed in several series along the years. From karting at a very young age, he has driven race cars at many levels of motorsport, including Formula Atlantic, International Formula 3000 and Rolex Sport Prototypes. Having won several honours, Bruno is part of Canada's, and North America's, elite driving talent.
Since starting competition he has had only one goal; winning. His objectives have dictated his overall attitude towards life; great things can be achieved through everyday hard work and a strong will. We are all very excited to see how Bruno makes a Revolution dance.
FPCC was developed by racers for racers. Their objective is to build a competitive race grid in Canada that is both fast and safe, accommodating amateur racers as well as acting as a gateway for young talent interested in pursuing a career in professional motorsport and prototype racing.
