Patrick Dussault confirms his place in the top 5 best GT3 Cup drivers!

Montreal, June 11, 2017 — Patrick Dussault earned two fifth-place finishes in the Ultra94
Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama, at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, as a
supporting event for the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada. The driver of the Lauzon
Autosport / Vincent&Dussault n ° 77 GT3 Cup avoided many incidents to make his way to
the top-five in both races.

In Sunday’s race, Dussault managed to keep a good pace after an early full-course caution.
Fifth on the starting grid, he kept his position for the 30-minute race, dealing with a difficult
track.

“It was so tough today (Sunday). It was very windy, so dust, leaves, even branches made the
track very slippery and hazardous. I had to be careful in every corner, not to lose control, which
could have resulted in a severe accident,” Dussault explained.

He had achieved the same result the day before, after a very eventful race. Many restarts
occurred at the beginning of the race. Third at one point after one of these restarts, he had to
take his position back after confusion at the start. When the green flag waved again, the
Lauzon Autosport / Construction Vincent&Dussault n ° 77 GT3 Cup got stuck between two
other cars at the first corner.

“Fortunately, I could save the car from a crash, but my tires suffered from this. While I was
trying to save the situation, the wheels locked up, causing an important flat spot on my tires,”
he said.

After that, the Lauzon Autosport / Vincent&Dussault Construction n ° 77 car have been very
capricious to handle. “The tires caused so much vibration, I really had a hard time finishing the
race and trying to keep my position.”

Patrick Dussault and the Lauzon Autosport / Vincent&Dussault Construction n ° 77 car will be
back in action on June 29-July 2, at the Watkins Glen International, for a combined event with
the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA at the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen.
