Barrie (Ontario, Canada), September 7, 2014 – Extraordinary team work, a great ability to adapt to every challenge. Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, Mario Gosselin, crew chief, King Autosport and the #47 WeatherTech Canada/Bellemare Group team have brilliantly fought through many twists and turns that occurred yesterday on the small track of the Barrie Speedway, Barrie, Ontario.
Thanks to their insight and the Quebecer’s undeniable talent, he was able to cross the finish line in fourth place, thus confirming his best performance to date on this circuit. Still leading in the driver standings, this ninth Top-5 gives Louis-Philippe Dumoulin a sixteen-point lead in the race for the championship.
On the starting grid in sixth place behind the wheel of the #47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare Group, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin hasn’t gotten any respite during the 307 laps of the event in which nine cautions occurred (including one red flag). Oscillating between the twelfth (60th lap) and the second place (281st lap), being one lap behind (free pass on the 151st lap) and needing to repair a flat tire (298th lap), the Quebecer fought relentlessly to keep his place and finish strong in fourth place.
“We adjusted ourselves throughout the race, revising the pit stop strategy, notably for the tires, and it paid off,” shares Mario Gosselin, crew chief, King Autosport.
“The race was not easy,” continues Louis-Philippe Dumoulin. “The car was not behaving like we hoped at the beginning, however, Mario Gosselin and the whole team have worked strategically lap after lap to remain competitive.”
“Congratulations to Jason Hathaway who won the race,” explains the driver of the #47 Dodge WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare Group.
The last event of the season will occur on the oval circuit of the Kawartha Speedway on Saturday September 20th.
“We will not take anything for granted. We are heading to Kawartha with determination and we are focused on our single and unique objective, to perform,” shares a determined Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.
