ACT Series to race at Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières
The ACT stock car series will stage a race during the road racing weekend of the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières in August.
A partnership with Festidrag.TV will see the competitors of La Série ACT, the Canadian division of the American Canadian Tour (ACT), compete on the twisty Trois-Rivières street course in a 41-lap, 100km race.
That will be the first time that the ACT drivers will compete on a road course in the series’ history. The American competitors are welcomed to compete, as their calendar is free on that weekend of August 11 and 12.
Marc-Patrick Roy, president of La Série ACT, is pleased to see his drivers being able to race in front the big crowds of the GP3R, a mythical event in motorsports which marks its 49th running in 2018.
The addition of a race at the GP3R will reinforce the value of La Série ACT as a development platform. Its 2014 champion Alex Labbe is climbing the stock car ladder, having clinched the Canadian NASCAR Pinty’s Series’t title last and is now running full time in the NASCAR Xfinity series.
“We are excited to add a second stock-car series to our road racing weekend as it was hotly demanded by our fans and our board of directors,” said Dominic Fugère, General Manager of GP3R.
“We are convinced that the ACT top competitors, who are well known by the Québec public, will give a tremendous spectacle to those who will come out and see them race on August 11th and 12th. We have been in talks for a few years with the late Tom Curley, president and founder of ACT and it is a great pleasure to have come to terms with his successor Marc-Patrick Roy and the president and producer of Festidrag.TV Martin D’Anjou.“
