Louis-Philippe Dumoulin and his #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare team return to the road course where he and his brother Jean-François triumphed in 2019, both stood on the podium together for the first time. The Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières represents the cornerstone, the debut of the Dumoulin brothers in motor racing, but above all the key moment in the season when they meet with partners, relatives, friends and fans in front of whom it is essential to perform. The winner of the 2014 and 2019 editions will present himself this weekend with one goal in mind: a third win.

"The situation over the past two years has led us to become more resilient and we are privileged to be able to participate in the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières this year. Congratulations to Dominic Fugère (General Manager of the GP3R), his team, the city of Trois-Rivieres, the government and public health services for their collaboration on this project, as this event is vitally important for all of us, partners, teams, fans and the series. We are also thinking of the other drivers from Quebec who did not participate in major events last year nor so far this season due to the cancellation of the races in Mosport at the beginning of the season and in Toronto last month. The field will be stronger than ever this year with the participation of more top-level competitors. We are so happy that the fans will be back in the stands, it will be quite a show for them as well," said the man who was inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame.

A 60-lap Race

The extra 10 laps added to the race mean that a pit stop is required to add enough fuel to finish the race. In addition, Crew Chiefs may decide to change two or four tires to make the car as quick as possible for the end of the race. Different race strategies could see this compulsory stop take place in the beginning, middle or end of the race - anything to make sure that their car in quick and in a winning position at the end of the race. The combination of Louis-Philippe Dumoulin and Robin McCluskey, his #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare Crew Chief, makes them a formidable force in their quest for victory.

"This Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières is the third event of the season out of 11 scheduled races and our goal is to win," concluded the driver of the #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare car.

Louis-Philippe Dumoulin and the team are second in points for the 2021 Pinty's driver championship after showing their full potential by finishing sixth and third respectively in the doubleheader meeting run on the short oval at Sunset Speedway earlier this month.
