A Race Filled With Twists And Turns For Louis-Philippe Dumoulin

NASCAR Pinty’s series: Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

2017-05-21-3196On the starting grid in third place, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin started the race on the tail-end due to a penalty in the pits. More determined than ever, he quickly rose to the top 3 to then lead the race for many laps.

He showed off all of his racing talents by finishing the race in sixth place and as the leading driver racing with slick tires.

Before the start of the race, rain was present, which ended up forcing the drivers to make a pit stop to get appropriate tires installed. The tire strategy employed by the WeatherTech Canada/ Groupe Bellemare crew was efficient up until the moment rain intensified on lap 35. Alternating between first and second place, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin was able to skillfully solidify his position until the last few laps.

“The car performed well both in dry conditions and in the rain. We fought among the leaders throughout the whole race. However, with the severe conditions at the end of the race, our strategy didn’t pay off because we made the decision to retain the slick tires. The most important thing is that we know the #47 WeatherTech Canada/ Groupe Bellemare car is fast, and it bodes well for the rest of the season. We’re very proud of that”, shares Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.
Next event: Delaware Speedway, Delaware Ontario

Louis-Philippe Dumoulin will once again be on-track for the upcoming event on the Delaware Speedway oval circuit, this coming June 3rd (start of the race at 7 PM).
