Highcroft HPD and Corvette Racing win Michelin Green X Challenge at Mosport
Brabham was the author of an August 2004 letter to Series President and CEO Scott Atherton that helped move the series to embrace green racing. The series responded by becoming the first to be recognized as “green racing” and the resulting Michelin Green X Challenge is now the most prestigious international environmental motorsports competition.
“It is certainly appropriate that here at the 50th anniversary of Mosport, where his family has such a long history, that David Brabham and the Highcroft team are once again winners of the Michelin Green X Challenge,” said Silvia Mammone, manager motorsports, Michelin North America.
Taking the Michelin Green X Challenge honors in the GT category was the #4 Corvette ZR1 from Corvette Racing.
“Corvette Racing is a leader in bringing E85R fuel to the ALMS,” said Mammone. “We congratulate the Corvette Racing team and GM on their success in alternative fuels.”
