Canadian Heroes Racing to Partner with Ian Michael Patterson

Canadian Heroes is proud to announce the launch of a second race team
during our inaugural race Victoria Day weekend in the Canadian Tire
Series at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. Ian Michael Patterson, a
veteran racer, will be wrapping his new Corvette in the Canadian
Heroes colours to run the SCCA Pro Racing Trans Am race. Patterson’s
Corvette will be debuted the same weekend as our other Canadian Heroes
race car which will be driven by Steve Moore in the Lucas Oil
Sportsman Cup on May 20th.
Patterson began attending high performance driving schools in the
spring of 2001, and became an instructor in 2006. He began racing in
2009 with CASC-OR in the GT events with a 2001 Corvette Z06, placing
third in GT Sprints- GT1 Class, and 2nd in GT Challenge- GT1 in 2010.
He then decided to build a race car from scratch- a 2011 Trans Am C6
Corvette, built by Gateway Racing Inc. With this new car, Patterson
won the 2011 CASC-OR GT Sprints- GT1 Class championship, and placed
fifth in qualifying for the SCCA Pro Racing Trans Am race at Mosport
on the Victoria Day weekend in May.
Canadian Heroes is excited to launch the Country’s first race team
dedicated to its troops, and we invite you to take part in this
historical event.
