The American Canadian Tour (ACT) is a late model stock car racing series based in the Northeastern United States, and Quebec, Canada. The American Canadian Tour has two different late model divisions: the ACT Late Model Tour, founded in 1986 conducts races in New England and New York, and the La Série ACT (formerly known as Série ACT Castrol Tour), founded in 2005 runs in Quebec, Canada. KONI is the specified damper for the series.
KONI America joins forces with Shea Racing as a Technical Partner in 2016 in Pirelli World Challenge. The team is led by Shea Holbrook, a 6-time PWC race winner from Groveland, FL, who pilots one of the two KONI racing damper equipped 2016 Honda Accord V6s in the Touring Car (TC) class. Teammate Jason Fichter, 2015 Trans Am “Rookie of the Year”, races the other team car. In recent years, KONI’s North American motorsports focus has been primarily on grassroots level club racing and autocross. PWC is often an aspirational series for many of those drivers wanting to move up so Shea Racing and KONI’s partnership are a natural fit.
