NASCAR Pinty's series: ninth event

Tied in fourth place in the rankings, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin doesn't see the Trois-Rivieres Grand Prix as an opportunity for points. He wants to win. With two podiums to date, the #47 WeatherTech Canada / Groupe Bellemare team is as motivated as ever to perform on this fourth road circuit of the NASCAR Pinty's Series.

It's here, at home, that he's left his mark the most often throughout the decades. For Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, nothing is to be taken for granted, and it's with the same passion and ardor that he wishes to offer the show his partners, family, and friends deserve, all of whom will be present to encourage him. "Every year, we meet people who are proud to attend the Grand Prix, it's heartwarming, it's Trois-Rivieres. We're privileged to be able to live that at home."

"It's the last stretch of the season, and we're ready to attack!", mentions the confident winner of the event in 2014. "We're here to win. The #47 WeatherTech Canada / Groupe Bellemare team has tweaked our settings and we're on the right track. We'll fight until the very end for the championship. We won't give up. Performing well is one of our daily goals, and winning our Grand Prix is always an exceptional moment. In front of our partners and all our supporters, the timing would be perfect for a win. Everything is put together, it's very motivating, and it's a goal we want to achieve."

Actions, involvement, renewal, all done with as much passion as ever. Congratulations to Dominic Fugère, and to all of the leaders and teams who have, year after year, believed in the potential of the event, have helped grow it, evolve it, and propel it to the notoriety it enjoys today. What more could we wish for than for that to continue for many more decades to come…

It's an event you won't want to miss! The 48th edition of this international event has planned everything to fill everyone, big and small, with passion and fun. We're expecting you!

BLITZ to fight cancer… race with us!

Trois-Rivières awaits you… we bet that the trunks of the Dumoulin brothers' cars will not be enough for all of your signatures… Will you be up to the challenge with us?

We're continuing the Great romp with the Quebec Cancer Foundation. Starting on Friday, volunteers will be present at the Dumoulin Competition paddock to gather donations.
