Eric Langevin Steps in as Driver and co-owner of GP 212 Sylco Plomberie, Replacing Yannick Léger

The HRL (Hydroplane Racing League) is pleased to announce that Eric Langevin, co-driver and former owner of the GP-12, Long Shot, will take over from Yannick Léger as co-owner and official driver of the GP 212 Sylco Plomberie, owned by Hydroplane Valleyfield, for the remainder of the racing season.


Eric Langevin, who previously led Long Shot to a second-place finish in the 2016 championship, is taking the helm after careful consideration. For him, his return is primarily a family decision. “I could not come back as a co-owner without the approval of my family, who will accompany me on this adventure,” Langevin said.


Yannick Léger, the former owner, will remain with the team as a crew member for the rest of the season. His goal is to return to Hydro 350. For him, it’s a decision based on his family values. He would like to thank all those who have supported him and allowed him to live his dream of piloting a Grand Prix.


In addition to his exceptional work in forming his team, Yannick Léger was awarded the title of Ambassador of the Year for his outstanding contribution to the sport within the community and among fans. This recognition underscores the importance of his role in promoting the HRL and the sport.


The GP 212 Sylco Plomberie team is thrilled to continue to rely on the support of Sylco Plomberie, which remains a partner in this new stage of the journey.


The HRL is excited to have a stable, experienced, and professional team to count on. “An exceptional mechanic and experienced driver, we have every confidence in Eric to lead the team brilliantly,” said a HRL spokesperson. We wish Eric and his entire team the best for the remainder of the season.
