july 13, 2018

A high Added-Value partnership since 2012

Dumoulin Compétition lived through a transforming experience in 2012 after signing a major partnership contract between WeatherTech Canada and a Canadian driver in NASCAR Canada, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin. Seven (7) years later, both parties have agreed to continue their enthusiastic and determined pursuit of sporting and commercial victories for a further three (3) years, through 2021.

The business relationship between the #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare and WeatherTech Canada, is unique in Canadian and Quebec racing. It has provided over the years an effective way of communicating the quality of WeatherTech Canada products and its corporate values across Canada while allowing the driver of #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare to pursue victories and driving championships. The successes achieved by both parties over the years have created a ten-year partnership (By 2021) based on a common passion for motor racing.

"Much like we at WeatherTech develop and sell automotive products of the highest possible quality to meet customer expectations, Dumoulin Competition and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin make full use of their skills and creative talents to deliver the best possible performance and quality in their shared activities with WeatherTech Canada every time out. We are proud to have that group as one of our corporate representatives and are delighted to continue the partnership with Louis-Philippe and Dumoulin Competition over the next three years", according to Tony Page and Joe Magri, co-owners of WeatherTech Canada.

Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has run many laps since winning the 2011 Rookie-of-the-Year award, followed by the 2014 NASCAR Canada Championship title.

"Representing WeatherTech Canada across North America over the last seven years has been a great honour for me, and I am looking forward to doing the same over the coming three years. Our family comes from a small village, and we realize how lucky we have been to start racing with very humble means and rise to today's level, all thanks to partners such as WeatherTech Canada. This three-year extension demonstrates their confidence in Dumoulin Competition. I am proud to count Tony Page and Joe Magri as close friends and I will spare no effort in making good on their confidence through our performance and the positive business returns we will produce. Furthermore, every member of the Dumoulin Competition team is also committed to provide the best possible sporting and commercial results," explained the enthusiastic driver of the #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare car.

Dumoulin Compétition lived through some major growth phases over the years, such as the decision to prepare its own cars starting in 2016. WeatherTech Canada was part of the analysis and decision process for this as well as other major decisions, thus playing a vital role in ensuring the success of our partnership.

The Pinty's Grand Prix Toronto will take place tomorrow, Saturday July 14th, at 3:40 PM.
