Racing Champions Ron Fellows and Jan Magnussen Present Pratt & Miller Corvette C6RS to Ken Lingenfelter
Pratt & Miller Headquarters - New Hudson, MI - Noted car collector and performance enthusiast Ken Lingenfelter was the center of attention when he took delivery of his black Pratt & Miller Corvette C6RS supercar on August 26. The entire staff of Pratt & Miller Engineering turned out for the event, along with Corvette Racing drivers Ron Fellows and Jan Magnussen.
Lingenfelter's extensive collection includes nearly 40 classic and exotic Corvettes. His Pratt & Miller Corvette C6RS coupe is chassis number 004.
"Everyone at Pratt & Miller contributed in their own way to the creation of the Corvette C6RS supercar for the street, so we included everyone in the celebration when we delivered Ken's car," said Gary Pratt after hosting a lunch for the entire staff. "We use all of the resources of Pratt & Miller, from engineering and design to fabrication and assembly, in the Corvette C6RS program. We wanted to thank every member of our team for their effort."
Fellows and Magnussen were on hand as the race team made final preparations for the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. The drivers were hosting members of the media on a tour of the Pratt & Miller facility when they presented the keys to Lingenfelter.
Silvia Mammone, Manager for Motorsports, Michelin North America, presented Pratt with a special Michelin tire with the C6RS logo carved in the tread.
"Michelin has been a great technical partner for the Corvette Racing team and for the Corvette C6RS program," said Pratt. "We couldn't have achieved our goals on the race track and on the street without them."
