NASCAR Pinty's Series - "The 50 Tours Hotel Le Concorde"
The Dumoulin family celebrates "50 years at the wheel"
25th participation in the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières for Jean-François Dumoulin

Jean-François Dumoulin and the team #04 Spectra Premium | Groupe Bellemare | Trois-Rivières Mitsubishi | MIA | Bernier Crépeau Chrysler Fiat are coming to the Trois-Rivières event with the firm intention of performing at all levels: on track and with the two drivers who have joined the team for this event. The history of 25 participations in the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières is marked by Jean-François Dumoulin's achievements, from his beginnings and dotted with repeated demonstrations of his irresistible determination. Celebrating this 50th edition is more than a race for the eldest Dumoulin brothers. From being his father Richard's spectator at the track, through his passage at the Jim Russell Driving School and the prestigious Player's Driver Development Program (1996 to 1998), and his growth into a professional driver, a whole generation will be expressing itself on the track this weekend.

"With our partners, family, friends and fans joining us over all these years, Trois-Rivières is our most important event of the season. So far this season, we have run on two road courses, with good results that we want to improve on. Our car is quick, and the objective is to qualify up front, to be in the leading group right from the start of the race and be in a position to win in the last laps, as we were last year here," explains the driver of the #04 Spectra Premium | Groupe Bellemare | Trois-Rivières Mitsubishi | MIA | Bernier Crépeau Chrysler Fiat.
