“We are pleased to welcome La Capitale General Insurance as presenting sponsor of the Grand Prix,” said Rock Bourassa, Co-Chief Executive Officer of the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt, presented by La Capitale General Insurance. “It is wonderful to see such an important Quebec organization, one that offers RV solutions insurance, take on a leadership role in the effort to relaunch the oldest premier motorsport event of the Quebec winter landscape.”
The traditional winter rendezvous of North American snowmobile riders to the land of Joseph-Armand Bombardier will also have a new official spokesperson in 2010. Jacques Villeneuve, who became involved early last summer in the relaunching of the event, has graciously accepted the appointment.
“I am very happy to contribute to the success and the future of the Grand Prix de Valcourt, presented by La Capitale General Insurance,” said the legendary Quebec rider. “It is an event that is close to my heart. Over the last quarter of a century, I have experienced some of the greatest moments of my career on this track and each time the fans have given me the warmest of welcomes. Even though my primary goal is to get ready to give a top notch on track performance on February 19, 20 and 21, I am also happy to take the time to promote and encourage everyone to attend this year’s event.”
