NASCAR Pinty's Series - "Les 50 Tours Hotel Le Concorde"
The Dumoulin family celebrates its "50 years at the wheel"

Team #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare looks forward to this event every year, as the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (GP3R) represents both the cornerstone anchoring the beginnings and the development years of the Dumoulin family in motor racing. The GP3R also serves at an important opportunity for the Dumoulin Competition organization to meet partners, parents, friends and fans, setting the stage for another outstanding performance on the part of the drivers and the team. Louis-Philippe Dumoulin approaches the weekend with one goal only: winning. Currently third in the championship, he obviously aims to close the gap on the current points leader.

"We want to win this 50th edition of the race!", exclaims Louis-Philippe Dumoulin. "We came here last year leading the championship and could afford to manage our race on our way to the championship. This year, our situation is different with Andrew leading, so our strategy is to go all out to score as many points as possible. We are going for the victory-period, a very different race strategy. The car was already very good in Toronto and our team has improved it since then. The show will be great this weekend," promised the driver of the #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare car.
