Driver Insight: “I love Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. It has some of the most intimidating corners in North America and they are so rewarding when you get them right. Turn Two always makes you hold your breath the first few times you crest the hill and drop back down. I always enjoy coming up to Canada and getting some Tim Hortons! The fans are great and really passionate about sports car racing and road racing and it’s fun seeing them all camped out all around the track having a great time,” – Dane Cameron, No. 31 Action Express Racing Corvette DP
