Trois-Rivi?res Prototype/GTS race quotes

James Weaver - Overall & SRP Winner Dyson Racing Team ...

James Weaver - Overall & SRP Winner
Dyson Racing Team #16 Ford Riley & Scott "It's good that we finally won again. It's aggravating breaking down. It's good to be back."

(on the rivalry between the #16 and #20 this race)
"It's a bit political. Dorsey (Schroeder), no longer driving with Champion, came here to prove how quick he is. It's great that he's on our team, but on the other hand we don't need our championship getting messed up. In the pits they know the rule - it's everyone for themselves - so they are not going to change strategy."

"I don't know all the math, but I think we only need some fifth- or sixth-place finishes in the final two races to clinch the championship. We would like to keep winning, though."

Butch Leitzinger - Overall & SRP Winner
Dyson Racing Team #16 Ford Riley & Scott
(on rival Intersport Racing going out early in the race)
"It's disappointing. Normally you take pleasure in others problems, and there might have been a little bit of that here. I am normally in the car with Oliver Gavin, and we have had some great races this season. It took a bit out of the race to have them go out so early."

Dorsey Schroeder - Overall & SRP Second-Place Finisher
Dyson Racing Team #20 Ford Riley & Scott
"It was a great run. I am ecstatic about this weekend. I didn't get my win, but getting the pole was huge for me. This was only my third race with the team, and I felt 100 percent with the car this weekend. I got everything accomplished that I wanted to accomplish."

Elliot Forbes-Robinson - Overall & SRP Second-Place Finisher
Dyson Racing Team #20 Ford Riley & Scott
"It couldn't be better, because we finished 1-2 and James (Weaver) got the points he needed. We were in-between James and Didier (Theys), which is exactly where we needed to be for the championship."

(on whether the late caution with Didier Theys behind him reminded him of Road America)
"No, because I had a good car this time. At Road America I was really worried, because we had damaged that car. This time we had a good car, and I was more worried about staying on Butch (Leitzinger)."

Stephane Veilleux - SRPII Winner
Porschehaus Racing #88 Nissan Lola
"This was only the second race for this car, because we have had some problems with it in the past. We led for 45 minutes until just before the pit stop, and then Jean Francois regained all the positions we lost."

"In Quebec it is always nice to race and win, especially here in Trois-Rivières."

Jean Francois Dumoulin - SRPII Winner
Porschehaus Racing #88 Nissan Lola
"Its amazing. I am really happy that Porschehaus let me drive in place of Peter Overing, who is having back problems."

"This was my seventh race here, and I got my first podium finish this morning in the Grand-Am Cup race with Team Lexus. And this is my first win here. It feels like a relief. It's really good."

Ron Johnson - GTS Winner
Fordahl Motorsports/Park Place Racing #5 Saleen S7R
"The throttle stuck pretty bad my whole stint. The car was shifting really badly because of it."

"I was really looking forward to running against Darren (Law in the #07 Porsche GT2) in the second stint, because he showed yesterday that car can really be quick. It ended up being to our advantage, since we were having problems, but it was still disappointing."

Chris Bingham - GTS Winner
Fordahl Motorsports/Park Place Racing #5 Saleen S7R
"Better to finish the race, than put it in the wall. We needed to save the car for next week, and this course is already bad on the brakes."
