Following Freddie Hunt’s participation in the Nissan Sentra Cup during the Trois-Rivières Grand Prix, a documentary entitled “Le Monaco d’Amérique – Memories of circuits” will be released. The film will revisit the history of GP3R by drawing inspiration from individual and collective memories from yesterday to today, from a collection of thousands of photographs, several hours of video footage and interviews covering the period of 1929 (38 years before the creation of the Trois-Rivières event) to this day.
