Race 13 Update - Delware Speedway (Sep 22, 2022)

Race 12 at the legendary Canadian Tire Motorsport Park marked the final road race of the year, and the penultimate race of the 2022 season. With the championship out of reach, L.P. Dumoulin was looking to finish the remainder of the season with strong performances, especially our home race at CTMP - The WeatherTech 200.

Louis-Philippe Dumoulin did not disappoint as he and the #47 crew battled hard in an exciting race, coming up just shy of a podium spot.

"Given one more lap, we could have finished on the podium. We had the speed to fight with the cars ahead of us" Shares L.P. "I'm proud of our team, we made effective pit stops. We will come back stronger next year because we are not done yet."

Race 12 Update - CTMP (Aug 30, 2022)

Complexe ICAR was the site for race 11 and the final stop in Quebec for the 2022 season. Louis-Philippe was looking for a strong finish to remain in the battle for the championship.

Race day started with mechanical issues for the #47 car, which led to a complete engine and transmission change just before the end of the practice session. Rainy conditions soon followed, forcing the NASCAR Pinty's Series to cancel the remainder of practice and qualifying sessions. This meant the starting grid would be dictated by the current championship standings, placing L.P. 7th on the grid.

Not having a lot of setup time, L.P. and the #47 car battled hard and moved up to the top 3 before finishing P6. "We fought for a top 5 finish, but at the end of the race I was too patient behind Andrew Ranger, and then (Alex) Guénette, and (Alex) Labbé took advantage of this slight tactical error to sneak by me." Shared L.P. "It wasn't the result we wanted, but we will continue to work hard"


With just two races remaining, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin will continue to give it his all and fight for championship points. The next stop will be our home race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park - The WeatherTech 200!

Race 11 Update - Circuit ICAR (Aug 27, 2022)

Race 10 went down in the history books as the first dirt race to take place in the NASCAR Pinty's Series. With 100 laps of action, Ohsweken Speedway did not disappoint as fans were treated to an exciting show.

L.P. Dumoulin and the crew did not get the result they were looking for, but they were able to keep the car in one piece and pick up some valuable experience for future dirt races.

"We will do our homework to come back stronger next year," explained Louis-Philippe Dumoulin. "Important changes could have been made, but it was too late in the day to make them, so we were limited to the changes we could do in this context. I would like to thank the team members who joined us, they were a great help throughout the event." Shares L.P. Dumoulin.

L.P. and the Dumoulin Competition team will now focus on event 11 which takes place at Circuit ICAR in Mirabel, Quebec. Louis-Philippe Dumoulin looks to repeat the success of last year where he picked up a podium finish.

Race 10 Update - Ohsweken (Aug 11, 2022)

Race weekend at GP3R started with much optimism as the hometown driver put down a strong qualifying result to start the race third on the grid. L.P. and the #47 car showed great pace all weekend and were in line for a podium finish.

Unfortunately with 2 laps to go, L.P. fell victim to an incident involving the race leader and the #96 vehicle, dropping Louis-Philippe down to P14 at the end of the race.

"The WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare car was very fast this weekend. This proves that our team is on top of its game. We have a team strong enough to win the championship. We wanted to finish at the front to get points, but it didn't work out the way we planned." Shares L.P.


With 4 races remaining on the schedule, the focus now shifts to Ohsweken Speedway for the first ever dirt race in the NASCAR Pinty's Series!

Race 9 Update - GP3R! (Aug 3, 2022)

The NASCAR Pinty's Series returns to the home of the defending champion as they hit the streets of GP3R!

L.P. and the Dumoulin Competition crew have wrapped up their western road trip with a P3 finish and some valuable points to remain in the top 5 of the series standings. It did not come easy however, as L.P. and the #47 car struggled in the first race of the back-to-back event.

"We've been having trouble with the car all day" Shares L.P. "We had trouble with tire pressure, so we made some changes. The car understeered a lot." Dumoulin and the #47 car would tough out the first race of the double header and finish P8, but most importantly keep the car in good condition for the second race and the podium finish.

L.P. and the Dumoulin Competition crew are now focused on the most important race of the season, the homecoming of the 3x champion at Trois-Rivières!


Race 7 & 8 Update (Jul 26, 2022)

The first race of the western road trip was full of action as L.P. Dumoulin and the #47 car managed to charge from the back of the pack to a P4 finish at Edmonton International Speedway.

L.P. and the Dumoulin Competition crew encountered some tire issues during the qualifying session, however they were able to regroup and strategize a new plan. "We had a tire mismatch issue during qualifying. The NASCAR officials agreed with us and allowed a change of the faulty tire. Thanks to the series officials, we were able to be competitive on the track, even though it didn't quite match the speed of our original setup" shared L.P. Dumoulin.

The 4th place result is timely as we approach the halfway point of the season. L.P now moves up to top 5 in the points standings.

Louis-Philippe Dumoulin and the crew look to carry the momentum into Saskatoon for back-to-back races at Sutherland Automotive Speedway. "The important thing is to score as many championship points as possible. We will now see you on Wednesday for the races in Saskatoon."


Race 6 Update (Jul 20, 2022)

L.P. Dumoulin's P3 finish at the Grand Prix of Toronto showed a return to form for the 3x NASCAR Pinty's Series champion. The podium finish couldn't have come at a better time, as the battle for the championship title begins to heat up with L.P. remaining in striking distance of the top spot.

"This third-place finish is very welcome and will build team momentum for the trip out west. Everyone deserves it so much after the difficult start to our season. We were fast today, and we were confident that we would be competing for the podium." shares Dumoulin.

L.P. and the #47 car now head out west for three races in two weekends. First stop is Edmonton followed by a doubleheader in Saskatoon. After a two year absence, L.P. and the Dumoulin Competition crew look forward to returning to Western Canada and repeating their past success!


Race 5 Update (Jul 11, 2022)

The first NASCAR Pinty's Series race in Newfoundland and Labrador for L.P. and the Dumoulin Competition crew started with optimism with a P4 qualifying result. "The car was handling very well at the start, as my crew had come up with great settings for the early part of the race as well as a good plan on what to change to also make it quick for the last part of the race and make the podium." shares Dumoulin.

Battling at the front of the pack for the first half of the race, L.P. would find himself in 6th place after the half-way point before things turned sour. L.P. explains what happened down below."The team will have a lot of damage to repair on the oval car when we get back to the shop. In the meantime, we are working hard on the street car to come back even stronger in Toronto" shares L.P. Dumoulin. Despite dropping down the standings, L.P. still remains in the fight for the championship standings as he returns to the Grand Prix of Toronto for race 5 of the NASCAR Pinty's Series!


Race 4 Update (Jun 22, 2022)

Louis-Philippe Dumoulin arrived at Autodrome Chaudiere looking to climb the points standings with a strong performance at race 3 of the NASCAR Pinty's Series. L.P. was able to drop the hammer during qualifying, taking pole position for the start of the race. He battled at the front of the pack, however several red flags and cautions extended the race well past sunset, making it more difficult to drive the #47.

"We were fast on the track, however when the sun went down, the car started to understeer and be more difficult to drive on the long runs. We fought for the podium throughout the race. On a restart at the end, we should have started 3rd instead of 4th, which would have allowed us to start on the inside row. We will meet with the officials about this issue. In the meantime, we will take the points for 4th place" shares L.P.

Just 4 points behind the championship leader, L.P. and Dumoulin Competition now head to Eastbound International Speedway for race 4 and the very first NASCAR Pinty's Series event in Newfoundland!


Race 3 Update (Jun 8, 2022)

Race #2 at CTMP was an eventful one resulting in a P7 finish. It was not the result Dumoulin Competition was looking for, however valuable points were secured as L.P. gained positions in the championship standings. L.P. was able to clock the fastest time during the practice session, but shortly after a severe rain storm followed forcing officials to cancel qualifying. This gave L.P. pole position for the start of the race on Sunday.

Race day started off with wet conditions, however L.P. was able to adapt and stay at the front of the pack before some bad luck struck the 3x champ. A miscalculation caused L.P. to run out of fuel, forcing him to make a pit stop dropping position on the grid.

L.P. now has his sights set on Autodrome Chaudière, which is the first race in Quebec for 2022!


Race 2 Update (May 19, 2022)

After a tough race at Sunset Speedway, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin looks to bounce back at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park for race 2 of the NASCAR Pinty's Series.

Race 1 was full of excitement as it kicked off the return of a complete championship season. And with a strong practice and qualifying session, L.P. had his sights on a podium finish until an unfortunate event happened. He explains in the video below.

His focus now shifts to race 2, where he's looking to earn some points and make a strong recovery on the CTMP road course.


Race 1 Update (May 11, 2022)

After the high of winning the 2021 NASCAR Pinty's Series and earning a third championship title, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin and the Dumoulin Competition crew are ready for battle in 2022.

During the off season the team remained hard at work making improvements to optimize the #47 car, while L.P. kept his skills sharp by competing in multiple races in the USA based Trans Am Series.

With 2020 and 2021 having modified schedules due to the pandemic, we're excited that 2022 will feature a full season as well as a brand new track for race #4 at Eastbound International Speedway.
