BACK IN HIS HOMETOWN, JF DUMOULIN IS DETERMINED TO PERFORM

august 10, 2016

It is with great enthusiasm that Jean-François Dumoulin will participate in the most anticipated event of the year this weekend at the Trois-Rivières Grand Prix. The fourth of six events planned in their schedule, the #04 Spectra Premium/ Bernier Crépeau / Groupe Bellemare/ MIA / Trois-Rivières Mitsubishi crew cannot wait to be back on track.

 
“Many local businesses have been with us for several years, and it's extremely important for the team to perform in Trois-Rivières. The arrival of Spectra Premium as a partner has allowed us to collaborate with more resources backing us, and the team has been working very hard since Toronto, notably following a day of trials which we used to tweak our settings,” explains Jean-François Dumoulin.
 
The Trois-Rivières Grand Prix has always been a privileged moment where we all unite to live the intensity of our passion for car racing. From their first laps to their learnings and successes, this circuit has witnessed the evolution of this passion for the Dumoulins.
 
“Trois-Rivières is our home, and it's always a prideful moment for us to compete in front of our people. We have so many memories on this track, and we want to create brand new ones. The energy people bring by supporting us is motivating us to never give up,” shares the driver of the #04 Spectra Premium/ Bernier Crépeau / Groupe Bellemare/ MIA / Trois-Rivières Mitsubishi car.
 
Statistical anecdote:
 
The Dumoulins are also 4 racecar drivers (Richard, father and Gérald, uncle) and… Jean-François Dumoulin's #04 (Spectra Premium / Bernier Crépeau / Groupe Bellemare / Motorsports In Action/ Trois-Rivières Mitsubishi).
 
Romping blitz against cancer!
 
Trois-Rivières awaits… and we bet that the trunks of the Dumoulin brothers' cars will not be enough to contain all of your signatures… Will you face the challenge with us? We continue the great romp with the Quebec Cancer Foundation. This Friday, volunteers will be present at the Dumoulin Compétition paddock to gather all of your donations (receipts available upon request).
