NASCAR Pinty's series - 11th event - Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

Trois-Rivières (Québec, Canada), August 31st, 2017 - Louis-Philippe Dumoulin is about to participate in the last event of the year on a road circuit which will occur on September 2 and 3 at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Bowmanville, Ontario. At this stage, nothing can tarnish the motivation and ambition of the #47 WeatherTech Canada / Groupe Bellemare team to climb on the highest step of the podium.

"We've finished one step from podium at the Trois-Rivières Grand Prix. The road circuit car is fast, and we're going to show up this weekend to realize the potential of the work accomplished by the whole crew, who are just as motivated to win. It's our goal for all three of the remaining races," explains the driver of the #47 WeatherTech Canada / Groupe Bellemare team.

The Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP) is synonymous with success for Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, and he knows how much the pit stop strategy is essential: "The CTMP is a circuit that's very, very fast, we have to take advantage of the momentum, since everything happens at such a high speed. It's the kind of circuit I really appreciate. For the audience, it's quite a show, and for the drivers, it's quite a challenge," he explains with enthusiasm.
