MOUNT ALBERT, ON – Gavin Sanders is gearing up for his first-ever participation at the famed Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (GP3R) this weekend in the Sentra Cup.
Trois-Rivières has been the host of the annual GP3R since 1967. The urban track, located in the middle of the city, has seen some of the best drivers, like James Hunt, Gilles Villeneuve, Ron Fellows, Jacques Villeneuve and more.
It will be a first for Sanders, as last year’s event was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. The #10 Sentra driver has never done the 2.46 km, 11-turn track, except on his simulator.
“I am definitely excited to race at the GP3R as it will be my first time,” stated Gavin. “It will be a challenge as most Sentra Cup drivers have already competed there before.”
The GP3R is renowned for its close walls and intense racing, which does not faze Gavin; “I am not afraid of a good challenge, and the layout of the track will make for great racing!” Sanders is in a great position in the Championship battle, being amongst the top runners. “There is a total of 106 points up for grabs at the GP3R; 50 points per win, two points for pole position and two points for the fastest lap during each race. The title is very much still on the table and will be until the end of the season, which is as equally exciting for us as it is for our fans!”
All Nissan Sentra Cup sessions will be live from the Coupe Nissan Sentra Cup Facebook page.

Gavin Sanders is thrilled to confirm that MOTOMASTER has been renewed as a major partner for the remainder of the season. “I am very happy that MOTOMASTER is finishing the season with us. We have a real chance at winning the Sentra Cup Championship, and that wouldn’t be possible without the support of our great partners.”
“I want to take this opportunity to thank Fat Bastard Burrito, who graciously gave us delicious burritos at Shannonville; we definitely made some people jealous in the paddocks! I have also been able to keep my Sentra squeaky clean because of SIMONIZ cleaning products. I am thankful and lucky to have partners who are this involved.”
