Trois-Rivieres, Quebec – Dumoulin Competition, King Autosport and Mario Gosselin have turned a new page in history in 2014 by becoming the first team made up entirely of Quebecers to ever win the NASCAR Canadian Tire series championship. For the 2015 season, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin once again partners up with his powerful technical and sporting team to prepare the #47 WeatherTech Canada / Bellemare Group cars and to defend the title of Canadian champion.
The off season has not given the team any time to rest, as they have been busy working to make the most out of their expertise, as well as looking for and developing new strategies and settings that will allow them to remain competitive.
“We are in full preparation mode,” shares Mario Gosselin, crew chief for the #47 WeatherTech Canada / Bellemare Group team. “We are fully aware of the necessary adjustments our program demands, and they are already being optimized in our workshop. The synergy of our team is in full effect, and I’m proud of what we accomplished in the 2014 season, we’re all working very hard together to offer a repeat performance. Finishing in the top-5 at all races and being consistent is a winning formula, we’re committed to keeping up the same pace and continue to aim for a championship win.”
Optimal performance, the improvement of our teammates, and efficient development of our mechanical adjustments will allow the team to perform private trials earlier in the spring.
“Last year, multiple challenges were overcome, notably between teammates who have quickly learned to work together at peak efficiency. In 2015, we have a head start and we wish to continue to make history by winning a second championship in a row. Furthermore, the testing we’ve done in the NASCAR Xfiniti series allow us to use a more efficient method for our cars in the NASCAR Canadian Tire series. To date, the tests have been convincing,” explains Martin Roy, owner and driver at King Autosport.
For the Canadian champion in the NASCAR Canadian Tire series, there is no doubt that solid partnerships, perseverance, tenacity, and willingness to never take things for granted are the most important ingredients of a successful team.
“Since the beginning of last season, the essential thing was to do our homework in order to have near-perfect preparation of the #47 WeatherTech Canada / Bellemare Group vehicles. We won the championship in 2014 because we were fighting amongst the leaders, and mostly because our car was very efficient. The team at King Autosport is aware of that, and of the power and development potential that we could optimize for the 2015 season. The competition will be strong once again this year, there will be more drivers for the full season, all very strong contenders who will also benefit from a revised, stronger strategy,” states Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, driver of the #47 Dodge WeatherTech Canada / Bellemare Group cars.
The first race of the 2015 season takes place on May 17th on the road circuit of the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
