August 27, 2003 - After a four-week break since the last race in Trois-Rivières (Quebec), Key Motorsport moves to their home track for round seven of the FAQ Regional Formula Ford 1600 Series, as well as round 8 of the FAQ Touring Championship. Key Motorsport will prepare a total of four cars for the event.
In the Regional Formula Ford Championship, many drivers are worth watching in this very important race, including Key Motorsport's driver Olivier Comeau. The 19-year old driver from Sherbrooke, Quebec, intends to drive his #33 Van Diemen/Location Pelletier/Key Motorsport to victory on the 1.2-kilometre long Circuit de Deux-Montagnes. Comeau enters Saint-Eustache currently 3rd in the Championship Standings with 69 points.
Commenting on this weekend's race Comeau said, "After testing the Van Diemen/Location Pelletier/Key Motorsport car this week we feel we know that much more about the car and I am really looking forward to the event. I am learning a lot with the team and find that I am improving technically after every race weekend. We are trying hard to win the championship," Comeau concluded.
In the Touring class, Jacques Gravel will be driving a BMW 328i E36 sponsored by Hankook/Canada Tire. Currently 6th, Jacques Gravel is looking to move up in the Championship Standings. He has demonstrated high levels of consistency and talent in his driving throughout the whole season. Hopefully, Jacques will be rewarded with a podium-finish if not a win.
Marc-Antoine Camirand will be driving a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon (sponsored by Hyundai Canada). This same car raced the 2002 Grand-American Championship with lots of success.
Camirand commented : "Since Trois-Rivières, the team has made some substantial changes making the car handle much better. We are hoping for a good weekend."
Sylvain Laporte, will be driving the third car, a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon - prepared by Key Motorsport and sponsored by Sikkens. He will prepare for the weekend by testing on Friday and hopes to do well after a disappointing Trois-Rivières race.
The races will be televised on RDS on later this fall.
