FEL Motorsports has signed on for the second time with Ontario Tech University in Oshawa in a partnership that benefits both parties.

The deal between FEL, which has more three decades experience promoting race events in Ontario and Quebec, and the university’s Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) is rooted in investing and encouraging youth interest in motorsports in Canada, with a shared mission to help students find internship and co-op placements with FEL Motorsports teams, sponsors, and manufacturers.

“FEL Motorsports has become a valuable component of Ontario Tech’s experiential learning program and we are thrilled to continue this partnership,” said John Komar, ACE’s Executive Director. “Industry collaborations such as this one are among the many reasons our students succeed. Providing students with real-world experiences alongside industry experts equips them with the tools and knowledge they need as they pursue their careers.”

FEL Motorsports, headquartered in St. Catharines, is also offering volunteer student positions to two Ontario Tech University students for the 2022 season. The volunteers will get high-level hands-on experience working in a professional racing series and will learn technical and operational support.

FEL Motorsports, for its part, get the benefit of using the facilities at ACE, home to one of the most sophisticated climatic wind tunnels in the world. ACE is stepping up again in 2022 to offer wind-tunnel testing to the champions of the TCR and GT4 classes in the Sports Car Championship Canada.
