But it’s true. The Oakville, Ontario driver has 11 professional wins at Mosport International Raceway – one each in Trans-Am (2010) and SCCA World Challenge (1991), two in the Canadian Firehawk Series (1989), three in the Canadian GM Series (1991-92) and an astonishing four in the Canadian Enduroseries (1993-94 and 1996).

“I'm really looking forward to running at my home track with Jaguar,” Wilden said. “Mosport is a very demanding track and we should have a good advantage there especially in terms of understanding how the track changes as the race goes on. I'm happy to have the opportunity to run again with RSR and Jaguar and look forward to a great weekend.”

A victory Sunday would be his first in the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón. He’ll drive one of JaguarRSR’s Jaguar XKR GTs with Bruno Junqueira.

In case you were wondering, Scott Sharp has six pro wins at Mosport, two of them in the ALMS. He’ll drive with Johannes van Overbeek in a Ferrari F458 Italia for Extreme Speed Motorsports.
