Hagersville ON, (September 29, 2019) – Team #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare came to Jukasa with the firm intention of consolidating their third place in the championship. Mission accomplished for Louis-Philippe Dumoulin who crossed the finish line in the top-10 on the last oval track of the 2019 season in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series. Punctuated by success and unforeseen events, 2019 was nevertheless an exciting season where every team member rose to the challenge to achieve our season’s successes: four podiums, including two wins and eight top-5s, and third place in the owners’ championship, a most relevant achievement for the shop and trackside support team.
“A second straight title was our first goal, and as things turned out, third-place finishes in both championships demonstrates the efficiency of the WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare team as a whole. We have tried major changes to the settings for the last three tracks (all ovals) and we have not achieved the desired results. There is plenty of essential work to be done in preparation for 2020. I am proud of what the team accomplished to improve on- and off-track performance, especially when the pressure is at its maximum,” explained Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.
“50 years behind the wheel”: an historic year
We will all remember the magical moments at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (GP3R), with the Dumoulin brothers together on the podium, a sight people had been waiting to see for a long time. This happened on the 50th anniversary of the Dumoulin family on the track, and the 50th edition of the GP3R. Another major event for The Dumoulin clan was Dumoulin Competition, the eponymous race shop, moving into the car rental and preparation business for other drivers, as well as a hands-on development activity for young drivers through the Festidrag Développement program.
The 2019 season is coming to an end, the Dumoulin Competition’s teams are already working on their 2020 program and other exciting projects… Curious? Follow us on the social networks to learn more!
The race will be broadcast on TSN on Sunday, October 6, at 12:30 pm and on RDS2 on Sunday, October 20, at 12:30 pm
