Race results

Similar to the #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare team strategy for the season, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin's driving demonstrated once again in 2021 his experience and self-discipline throughout the season. This strategy paid off as the team won its third Pinty's championship. What a great way to mark the tenth year of the team's partnership with WeatherTechCanada and the twenty+ years of partnership with Groupe Bellemare!

"Unique, epic I can't believe that we won the championship once again. Thanks to my partners WeatherTech Canada and Groupe Bellemare, the NASCAR Pinty's Series, everyone involved at Dumoulin Competition and the fans. It's been a tough couple of years, but here we are: 2021 champions. Our team has done an amazing job and so has everyone at home, it's incredible. I would also like to thank all those who could not be with us and my brother, Jean-François, because this championship belongs to you too," said Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, ever so grateful to his team at Dumoulin Competition.

"Over the last ten years we've watched L.P. develop as a driver and achieve many great things; from being inducted into the Canadian Motorsports Hall of Fame to his now third Canadian NASCAR championship victory. He's a fierce competitor while also being a true gentleman, and this combined with his commitment to hard work and consistency is something we value at WeatherTech. We're proud of both L.P. and the entire Dumoulin Competition team for executing a rock-solid race program and bringing home a third championship title," mention Tony Page and Joe Magri, owners of WeatherTech Canada.

"Groupe Bellemare is proud to have been associated with Jean-François and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin for over 20 years. Our family values are the same, and we have seen these young men develop over the years both personally and professionally, and always through their passion for racing and their maturity. This third championship is a joint achievement for the brothers that speaks to the rigor, dedication, and perseverance of the entire Dumoulin team. Please accept the heart-felt congratulations from every member of Bellemare family to your Dumoulin Competition family." explains Jean-Luc Bellemare, Co-President de Groupe Bellemare.

2021 Season Resume

Following the 2018 championship, Dumoulin Competition was able to analyse the elements that were essential for the wins and prepared a strategy for the future. A driver wins a championship, but that result is the work product of the team members who work as a team and are trained, year after year, to become a core of specialists who are more and more efficient and ready for any eventuality over races and seasons. After two wins (Wyant Group Raceway & Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières) and a third-place finish in the championship in 2019, followed by a shortened season in 2020, Dumoulin Competition arrived at Sunset Speedway in 2021 with the best cars in its history (including a new oval track chassis, designed and built in-house), a solid technical staff, and a strategic plan with one goal in mind: to win the NASCAR Pinty's championship.

The #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare car completed all the race laps in the 10 races on the 2021 schedule. Louis-Philippe Dumoulin always brought back to his team a car that was rarely damaged, allowing them to successfully cope with the intensity of the condensed season.

"We had prepared our car specifically for each race. Everything went well, despite a few difficulties and unknowns that were resolved as we went along. The team kept improving as the season progressed, and our preparation for 2022 will be even better, what we consider to be the best in the Pinty's series." concluded Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, a three-time NASCAR Canada Series Champion.

Championship event postponed

For Dumoulin Competition, the primary concern, regardless of individual beliefs, is to ensure the health and safety of everyone in order to celebrate our successes together in an atmosphere of conviviality and not of restrictions. The objective of the event is above all to "meet and have a good time together".

Following the evaluation of the different parameters and the current pandemic context regarding a championship event at the Dumoulin Competition workshop:

  1. The event would take place in a Groupe Bellemare building: masks must be worn, and a one metre separation must be respected at all times.
  2. Although the media report different levels of application at similar events, the sanitary measures requested by the Quebec Public Health Department (attached is a complete list of these requirements in the Additional Information section) require the enforcement of all such sanitary rules (surveillance, cleaning and others).
  3. Should an outbreak occur, Dumoulin Competition and our partner Groupe Bellemare would be held responsible.

We have also evaluated the possibility of holding the event in a restaurant or other location, but the goal is to be all together in the shop where everyone actually works towards the success of the team.

For all these reasons and in agreement with WeatherTech Canada and Groupe Bellemare management, we are postponing the activity until after the holidays. Again, this will be conditional on the actual situation and measures applicable at that time.

At any time, if you have any suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us, as all of you are so important to our team.

"Passion - Performance - Partnerships"
