NASCAR Pinty's Series: Season Opener - road course - Canadian Tire Motorsport Park
Clarington 200 - Victoria Day Speedfest

Louis-Philippe Dumoulin will launch his 25th racing season at the legendary Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Bowmanville, Ontario) this coming weekend. Over the years, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has figured prominently at the CTMP, especially in the F1600 and in the NASCAR Pinty's Series. In this opening race of the Pinty's Series for 2018, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin is aiming at a podium finish aboard his #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare car.

"We have built up our team from a bare floor over the last two seasons, which proved to take more time and effort than we had originally estimated. Over this past winter, we were able to concentrate on overall performance of the cars, focusing on the chassis and suspension, and on increasing engine efficiency. The work promises to produce great results, and team members are all proud of these accomplishments. Our whole team and our partners are chomping at the bit to validate all this work on the track, with podium finishes and wins", added the driver of the #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare team.

Pinty's Series racing at CTMP puts an emphasis on pit stop strategy - when to change tires (Or not!) and how much fuel to add at the right time, to keep or even improve your on-track position. "CTMP is mostly made up of very high-speed corners and straightaways. Keeping up your speed (i.e. momentum) in the corners is the most important technique that you use in virtually every corner. If you do not slow down too much in corner entry, you do not need to regain on the way out that speed you lost on the way into the corner. That technique requires confidence in your skill and your car, and make you quicker all the way down the straightaways. Louis-Philippe Dumoulin added "This track requires a smooth, effective style, my favourite. Spectators love the show, and we drivers love the challenge," added Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.
