Peter Gibbons officially running Fords

For the 4 road courses, the Canadian Tire colours of Peter Gibbons will be covering a Ford Fusion body shell for 2008. In a Toronto Sun article, Gibbons cited a current horsepower disadvantage with Chevrolet engines as the reason for breaking his long dedication. Widespread speculation circulated quickly following a test at Mosport where Peter Gibbons was spotted driving a Ford Fusion in test camouflage.

Unlike in the top three NASCAR touring series, the Canadian Tire Series receives little to no official support from manufacturer Chevrolet and Ford. This allows competitor the freedom to decide without penalty which vehicle brand to run.
