Corvette Racing Unveils Ron Fellows Special Edition in Sebring 12-Hour Race
Team Transforms No. 3 Compuware Corvette C6.R from Yellow to White to Salute New Limited Edition Z06
SEBRING, Fla. - One of Corvette Racing's familiar yellow C6.Rs will have an all-new look when the
green flag falls to start the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring today. The crew of the No. 3 Compuware
Corvette has transformed their race car from Velocity Yellow to Arctic White. The new look salutes the
limited edition Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Champion Corvette Z06 that was unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show in
Fellows will share the glistening white machine with teammates Johnny O'Connell and Jan Magnussen in
the classic 12-hour endurance race. It's the first time since the 2003 24 Hours of Le Mans that a factory
Corvette has raced without its trademark yellow livery.
Led by 2006 GT1 Crew Chief of the Year Dan Binks, the crew of the No. 3 Corvette C6.R replaced all of
the yellow body parts - fenders, doors, hood, roof, rear quarter panels, door sills, and front and rear
fascias - with new white panels. The team also installed a fresh LS7.R race engine, drivetrain, and
brake/suspension components as part of their routine pre-race preparation for today's grueling 12-hour
"Ron Fellows is part of Chevrolet's racing heritage, and he has been instrumental in the
remarkable success of the Corvette Racing team in the American Le Mans Series," said Ed Peper,
Chevrolet general manager. "The special signature-series Z06 model that bears his name will forever
link him to one of the greatest eras in factory racing, which has produced six consecutive ALMS GT1
manufacturers championships, and counting."
This special Corvette Z06 is the first signed special edition in Corvette's 54-year history, and is the
first Arctic White Z06 ever offered. Only 399 are planned for production: approximately 300 for the United
States, 33 for Canada and 66 for other export markets. The Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Champion Corvette Z06 will
be available this spring. It carries an MSRP of $77,500, including destination.
The Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, the first round of the 12-race 2007 American Le Mans Series, is
scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m. ET on Saturday, March 17, 2007. Portions of the 12-hour race will be
