The organizing committee of the Régates de Valleyfield proudly invites everyone to the concerts, dinners and races scheduled for its 78th edition, held from July 8 to 17 2016.
It is during a press conference hosted by the Mayor of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield to discuss the traditional Saturday night fireworks that the General Manager of the Régates de Valleyfield, Michel Poirier, revealed the latest news on the event that is set to start on Friday, July 8.
Five nights of concerts
On July 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16, a diverse line-up will successively take the Loto-Québec stage, culminating in the return of Éric Lapointe at the Régates de Valleyfield. A few tables are still available under the Univesta – RPB Assurances tent during the Kaïn concert on Friday, July 15. These tables can seat 8, 10 or 12 guests, who will be treated to a 5-course gourmet dinner and an open bar. Book your table with David Rochon at 450-371-6144, extension 258.
On July 8, Hydroplane Québec welcomes families and friends to a spaghetti dinner at the Delpha-Sauvé Park. All profits will be given to the organization and guests will enjoy inflatable structures, a candy bar and on-site entertainment before Rémi Chassé’s free concert.
The Régates de Valleyfield is the fifth stop on the Hydroplane Racing League’s (HRL) circuit. “Now that we have reached the half-season, the competition could hardly be tighter. The Régates de Valleyfield is generally the drivers’ favorite place to race. They all want to win here”, explains Michel Poirier. Many drivers from the region will in fact take part in the competition.
The 2.5 litre class races should be particularly exciting as the first six positions in the standings are held by drivers from Salaberry-de-Valleyfield and around. Donald Leduc, from Valleyfield, is currently the leader of the Formula 2500 class, but will have to look out for Yan Beaupré who has performed surprisingly well recently, taking the third place during the latest competition in Brockville. Another driver from Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Nicolas Rousse, leads the Hydro 350 standings and Eric Langevin, from Mercier, will aim to take the second spot from Bert Henderson in the Grand Prix class.
