TotalEnergies is proud to support Valérie Limoges in the Nissan Sentra Cup this season

TotalEnergies is proud to continue their partnership with Valérie Limoges, the 2022 Nissan Sentra Cup champion, for a ninth consecutive year.

After winning the championship title in the final race at Circuit Mont-Tremblant last year, Valérie will be returning to the Nissan Sentra Cup to defend her title. "It's an honour to be part of this adventure with TotalEnergies," said Valérie Limoges. "We have accomplished a lot together over the past few years and I am happy to be able to showcase the TotalEnergies banner at Canadian circuits once again."

Ever since she was a child, Valérie Limoges never hesitated to break the glass ceiling, as she continued to evolve in a typically male-dominated domain. Prior to the Nissan Sentra Cup, Valérie spent a few seasons in single-seaters, notably in Formula 1600 and Formula Renault. She then moved to the Grand-Am Cup in the United States where she was recruited by Ford. She was the first woman to claim a pole position in this series.

In Canada, Valerie stands out for her excellence on track. She set a record by becoming the first female driver to take home two overall wins at the Grand Prix of Trois-Rivières in 2021.

Last November, Valerie was invited to be a panelist at the Audi House of Progress, a coveted event put on by Audi. Speakers alongside Valerie included Olympian Marnie McBean, renowned astronaut Chris Hatfield and automotive designer Jason Battersby. During this major event, Valerie was invited to chat with the speakers about her career, but also about the role of a race car driver.

"TotalEnergies Marketing Canada is proud to support a daring driver who pushes the limits and inspires others with her talent and determination," said Olivier Gauthier, President of TotalEnergies Marketing Canada. "We believe in equal opportunity and the promotion of talent, regardless of gender. By supporting our driver, we affirm our commitment to diversity, inclusion and recognition of women in motorsports. Good luck to Val Limoges and we wish her a season full of victories!"

The first round of the Nissan Sentra Cup season will kick off on May 27th and 28th at Circuit Mont-Tremblant. The series will then visit the ICAR Complex tarmac in July, before moving on to the coveted Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières in August. The season will conclude in September with two events, the first taking place at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, followed by Circuit Mont-Tremblant for the Fall Classic.
