The GP3R will be the eighth event (third road circuit) of the season.
With two podiums including a victory, three top-5, and five top-10 since the beginning of the season, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin is currently second in the NASCAR Canadian Tire series championship.
In the WeatherTech Canada/Bellemare’s colors, the Trois-Rivieres native hopes above all to continue his rise in the championship, and to offer a performance that his partners, the media, his friends, family, and loyal supporters deserve.
The GP3R will be the eighth event (third road circuit) of the season. In 2012, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin experienced a weekend of success behind the wheel of the #47 Dodge WeatherTech Canada/Bellemare by reaching pole position and crossing the finish line in second place on the Trois-Rivieres race track. The objective of the team is to end up on the podium and, above all, to accumulate a maximum amount of points for the championship.
“Being home is certainly a motivating factor, we are in front of our friends, fans, family, and partners, and we want to perform for them as well. One thing remains the same; we are on track to win. Participating in the whole championship brings another meaning, and requires that we come up with a global strategy. Every race is important for the standings,” shares the driver who has participated in every edition of the GP3R since 1998.
The on-track action promises to be very competitive, and is set to offer quite a show for racing fans
On June 10th, Quebec-based Dodge dealers, in partnership with Julia Wine and Couche-Tard, have announced the participation of Jacques Villeneuve in the 44th edition of the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres. Three high-caliber cars will be prepared by Scott Steckly’s team (22Racing) for this event, since Jacques Villeneuve will be behind the wheel of the car driven by Louis-Philippe Dumoulin in 2012 (LP Dumoulin #47 WeatherTech Canada/Bellemare, #22 Scott Steckly, and #24 Jacques Villeneuve).
“I’ve always had fun with Jacques. Being in the same team is interesting, and when we get on track, both of us want to be first more than anything else. We will really offer a very, very good show to the audience that will be present at the Grand Prix this year. It will be a historic event, that’s for sure,” shares the driver of the #47 Dodge WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare.
The renewal of the major partnership with WeatherTech Canada enables Louis-Philippe Dumoulin to participate in complete second season in the NASCAR Canadian Tire series, and to position himself with great performance in the championship, in a professional context where the vision, conviction, and values of the organization align with his.
“WeatherTech Canada is pleased with its continued association with Louis-Philippe Dumoulin and the entire Dumoulin Competition race team. Heading into the first race we knew we were in for an exciting season, and we couldn’t be more right says Tony Page, President, WeatherTech Canada. LP’s racing expertise, drive and passion have played out on the track in front of excited fans and the results speak to the team’s success. GP3R will be no different and we look forward to a strong finish and a great race to watch!”
