The #47 WeatherTech Canada / Groupe Bellemare team is back home for the 47th edition of the Trois-Rivières Grand Prix

august 10, 2016

While tied in fourth place in the championship, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin isn't at the Trois-Rivières Grand Prix to rack up points, he's there to win. With two podiums this season, the #47 WeatherTech Canada / Groupe Bellemare team is motivated to perform on this fourth road circuit event of the NASCAR Pinty's series.

“We are here to win!” exclaims the winner of the 2014 home event. The mechanical issues we've had at the beginning of the season are now behind us. It's very important to continue on this path and to keep climbing up the championship ranks,” reaffirms a motivated Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.

The Trois-Rivières Grand Prix is a track that has seen many Dumoulins evolve over the past 47 years. This event in our hometown is always an intensely exciting moment for Dumoulin Compétition. Reuniting with you all on the site and seeing your excitement in the paddock is a magical thing!

“We say it every year, but Trois-Rivières is so important to us. I'm really excited to be on the track in front of all of these people we can't wait to see again. We'll see you on the site!” shares the enthused driver of the #47 WeatherTechCanada / Groupe Bellemare car.
