The Montreal Grand Prix takes place at the Circuit Gilles Villenueve, another street circuit just a short journey from the centre of the city.

Spectator-wise, the hairpin at turn 10 sees plenty of action and from the stands you get to see them coming and going, although you’ll want to select a seat as far back in the stand as possible so the catch fencing doesn’t block your view.

This circuit is famous for the “wall of champions” at the exit of the final corner. Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve all collided with the wall in the 1999 race. Unfortunately, there are no grandstands at that spot just corporate facilities.

KYM'S TIP

Pick up a bicycle in town and ride to the track. It’s not too far and it’s great exercise.

The city itself is cosmopolitan for the most part but a walk though Old Montreal reveals a different side of the city. It’s busy, vibrant and buzzing around race time and hotel-wise I can recommend the St Paul Hotel and Hotel Le Germain although you’ll be paying top dollar.

Getting to and from the track by car is tricky unless you have a parking pass. I get an Uber to the casino as it’s just a short walk to the paddock from there. For most though, the Metro offers the quickest and cheapest option, dropping you off at the Jean Drapeau Metro station after which you can cross the bridge by foot and be at the hairpin (turn 10) in 10 minutes or so. Note though, if you arrive at peak times that walk across the bridge can take up to 30 minutes.

Oh Canada, oh Canada, we love your GP!

ABOUT THE Canadian

GRAND PRIX CIRCUIT

The track winds its way through a wooded park. A good section of the track is not visible to the public and it is tricky for us to get to as we have to trek through some dense scrub and forrest.
