Toronto (Ontario, Canada), July 15, 2017 – The weekend ended on a great note for the #47 WeatherTech Canada/ Groupe Bellemare team in Toronto. Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has managed to score his second podium of the season. He was convinced that the car would be at its best performance level at the end of the race, and particularly with a restart happening in the last few laps. It’s exactly what happened. Occupying second place at the time of the restart, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin was able to defend his place to the very end.
Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has qualified the #47 WeatherTech Canada / Groupe Bellemare car in seventh place yesterday, only 1.2 seconds behind pole position. With his crew chief, Bill Burns, they analysed the settings in order to improve speed. Strategic overtakes were made skilfully and without contact.
“We’re very happy for the team. The car wasn’t behaving like we wanted during the qualifiers, and Bill Burns and the crew have worked hard to make sure we could fight within the top 5. Our transmission ratio throughout the laps was not at the level we wanted, but we were efficient during restarts. The circumstances played in our favour and we ended up on the podium. We will need to continue to optimize settings in order to come back strong at the Trois-Rivières Grand Prix”, mentions the driver, who now occupies third place in the championship rankings.
