Lake Ontario Offshore Racing (LOOR) announces that The Humberview Group of Automotive Dealerships, known as DriveHG.cahave extended their commitment through 2022 as the title sponsor for LOOR. The focus of this partnership will continue to be on the Susan Hood Trophy Race and the Lake Ontario 300/600 Challenges, but now has been extended to include the Lake Ontario Short Handed Race (LOSHR) series. 

“Over the past six years DriveHG’s enthusiasm has resulted in a higher level of excitement on the race course and during onshore events and activities," comments Monica Doedens, Chair of Lake Ontario Offshore Racing.

The Humberview Group owns and operates 21 stores in Ontario with over 5,000 vehicles and 1500 team members representing virtually all automotive brands. From the Dorothy Ley Hospice Race, to Bike Sponsorships, Ski Sponsorships, and many more philanthropic endeavours, the Humberview Group is passionate about enlivening its community. 

Key to the extended arrangement is Andrew Lennox, currently General Manager for Drive HG’s newest acquisition Mercedes-Benz Brampton and a member of the Port Credit Yacht Club since 2004. Racing was in his blood at an early age, spurred on by his father Skip Lennox, a member of the Canadian Olympic team in 1964. Andrew has raced Opti’s as a kid, Lasers, and various J boats in the past, and is currently preparing a J/105 for this season’s events. He and his wife Jennifer spend much of their time cruising Lake Ontario in their pride and joy, Serendipity II, a Niagara 42. 



The European portion of SailGP Season 4 got underway this weekend in Saint-Tropez, France. Having hit record breaking speeds last year on the Côte d’Azur, Phil Robertson and the Canadians were looking forward to this weekend of racing, but things did not turn out as hoped. A penalty in the pre-start of race one was a precursor of what was to come, and it proved difficult for the team to recover.

A collision with Spain early on in race one set the team back and translated into eight penalty points for the event and an additional four penalty points for the season.
