Canadian Tire Motorsport Park Announces Partnership with Chevrolet Canada

Baptized the Chevrolet Grand Prix, the IMSA race at CTMP will be the series’ only Canadian stop

  • Chevy Canada will become the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race title sponsor.

  • The race at CTMP will take place the weekend of July 1-3.

  • It will premiere the C8.R on Canadian soil.

This is good news for Canadian motorsports fans. For the first time since 2019, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series returns to Canada and Chevrolet Canada will be the event’s title sponsor.

CTMP track co-owner Ron Fellows, a former Corvette Racing driver, a Corvette brand ambassador, and an integral part of the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School is especially excited.

“We’re all very excited to have IMSA returning to our circuit after a multi-year hiatus,” Fellows said. “Having the support of Chevrolet and GM Canada makes it even more special. I think I speak for all our fans too when I say we can’t wait to see the teams and drivers of IMSA return to CTMP.”

Over at GM Canada, they’ve jumped on the opportunity to proudly fly its bowtie banner as a sponsor. In fact, so big the sponsorship that the race now bares the Chevrolet name.

“It’s an exciting time for Chevrolet Canada as we present the Chevrolet Grand Prix at CTMP this summer. Corvette fans are enthusiasts with a deep appreciation for our race program, so it’s a natural fit for us to be the title sponsor for the IMSA race,” said Michael MacPhee, Chevrolet Canada Brand Director. “For the first time in Canada, the Chevrolet Grand Prix will debut the C8.R and we can’t wait to cheer the team on!”
