Grand Prix hydroplane learned today that Mathieu Daoust, driver of the H-9 L’Olympique will make his Grand Prix debut in 2014.
The Daoust Family came to an agreement with Norm Shannon to acquire all the equipment of the GP-104 Pièces d’auto Valleyfield team.
“Our team is thrilled to move up to the Grand Prix class. It will be a great challenge for us and I am very happy. 2014 will be a season to gain experience, but I intend to show everyone all my ability. If everything goes well, we will work hard and go test in Stuart, Florida before the first race of the ACHA season. I would like to thank all my crew members who already confirm their commitment to our team. Thank you to my family as well, along with my girlfriend to share this dream with me” said Mathieu Daoust.
Daoust will be the 4th driver of this hull after Claude Bergeron in the GP-444 Grand Prix Valleyfield in 2010, and the duo of Norm Shannon and Marc Lecompte.
Grand Prix Hydroplane wishes best of luck to Mathieu Daoust and his team in this new adventure.
