From Albatec Racing

Albatec Racing has secured support from Canadian food giant St-Hubert for tomorrow’s round seven of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at the Grand Prix of Trois-Rivieres.

St-Hubert will back the fledgling rallycross team comprising Team Principal Andy Scott and 1997 F1 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve in a pair of 600bhp two-litre, 16v Peugeot 208 Supercars for the event, which takes place around a purpose-built rallycross track.

Founded in 1951 in St-Hubert Street in Montreal the restaurant’s tradition is rooted in innovation. Offering free home delivery service and an avant-garde approach to advertising using radio and TV commercials to attract people to the restaurant, the Hélène and René Léger-founded St-Hubert eatery is now at the forefront of the Quebec restaurant industry.

“I am delighted to welcome St-Hubert aboard as a supporter for arguably the biggest event on the calendar for Albatec Racing’ said Andy Scott, Team Principal, Albatec Racing.

“Aside from our own home event in Lydden Hill, the event here in Canada marks a huge weekend for Jacques and I’m very happy to be a part of the prestige event alongside one of the oldest, longest-running companies in Quebec.”
