Back on Victory Lane, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin’s primary objective this season in NASCAR Canada

Three-time champion of the NASCAR Canada series, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin will begin a new chapter in the series this year. While around forty competitors are registered, including 31 for the first event which will take place this weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport), in Ontario, the driver of car #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare | Omnifab has for main objective to be back on Victory Lane, which it was not the case in 2023 despite solid results, including four podium finishes.

Last year, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin finished more than half of races among the top five, and he is ready to obtain new victories this year. And for this, the Dumoulin Compétition team has worked very hard over the last few months on the cars of the Trois-Rivières driver: “We have made a lot of adjustments to our oval track car, notably due to the new series’ regulations, then tests last week which have confirmed that our car will be competitive on this type of track this season” confides Dumoulin. He adds: “Regarding the road racing car, it has been rebuilt from the front to the rear. It also has a new design that our fans should really like.”

This car will obviously be used by the team this weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, the very fast Ontario race track, always appreciated by Louis-Philippe Dumoulin: “I learned to drive in motorsports at Circuit Mont-Tremblant and at Mosport. I know this track very well and the fact that it is once again the inaugural event of the NASCAR Canada season is very pleasant. I love this track layout. Additionally, we did a pre-season test day at Mosport two weeks ago, like most of the other teams in the series, so there is no secret for me to compete on this track with a NASCAR’s car.”

The duel between Dumoulin, who started from pole position, and Kevin Lacroix during the last lap of the previous NASCAR Canada race at Mosport, in September 2023, was the highlight of the race. And their respectful battle was noted by the fans. This victory which had then escaped him by nothing, the driver of the car #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare | Omnifab intends to seize it this season. “I’m not thinking about a fourth title in the series. The most important goal is to return to Victory Lane in NASCAR Canada, in a way finishing the development work undertaken on our cars during the 2023 season. Winning, starting strong this 2024 season, is my ambition, that of our partners and everyone at Dumoulin Compétition” specifies Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.
