Toronto, an important track for Jean-François Dumoulin

july 12, 2018

NASCAR Pinty's Series, Fourth round - Urban Track Layout - Honda Indy Toronto - July 13th and 14th, 2018

Jean-François Dumoulin will be back in Toronto for the July 14th Pinty's Grand Prix of Toronto, driving the #04 Spectra Premium | Bernier Crépeau Chrysler Fiat | Groupe Bellemare | MIA car. This layout requires some very « physical » driving, the type of driving that Jean-François Dumoulin likes, and where he was notably successful in the past. In 2000, he partnered with Richard Spénard to win an Endurance race after passing over 50 cars (Motorola Cup Series, New Tech Motorsport, Porsche 993). In the 2017 edition of the Pinty's race, the Quebec driver climbed his way from the back up to a fifth-place finish. Keep an eye on his spectacular yet precise driving over the weekend.

"We had an excellent race at our last outing at the Autodrome Chaudière oval. Our testing last week allowed us to find the ideal set-up for a tight and bumpy track such as Toronto. Our patience in the early laps and our charge later in the race paid off here last year, and I am looking forward to a strong run up with the lead pack this time out," added the driver of the #04 Spectra Premium | Bernier Crépeau Chrysler Fiat | Groupe Bellemare | MIA car.

This will be Jean-François Dumoulin's third visit to the urban layout. "The track is really bumpy, especially in the braking areas and in the corners. You need to attack them hard to get the most out of the car. Given this driving style, we know that our #04 Spectra Premium | Bernier Crépeau Chrysler Fiat | Groupe Bellemare | MIA team will put on a show that will satisfy everyone in the stands, as well as our fans who came from back home to see us," added a confident Jean-François Dumoulin.
