Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve

Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve is a 4,361-metre long car-racing track which has played host to the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada since 1978.

Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve is well-regarded for its smooth asphalt surface and the meticulous manner in which the track is maintained to meet the requirements of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). These track conditions contribute to the high-calibre racing performances by the F1 cars.

Multi-purpose track

When it is not hosting an event, the Circuit is a one-of-a-kind facility in the province of Québec, where cycling, para-cycling, inline skating and running enthusiasts come to train.

Surrounded by lush gardens and a wide assortment of art works, the Circuit is a pleasant and relaxing place, a nice spot to go for a stroll. This multi-purpose track also provides a great view of Montréal, with its strategic location in the heart of the Saint Lawrence River.

Practical information

Summer season

Winter season

Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve is two-way between the pont du Cosmos bridge and the Pavillon du Canada.

To prevent the track from being damaged, no abrasives are used. But to improve adherence to the road surface, there is a spreading of crushed stone.

Crushed stone is one the main causes of bike skidding, so it's important to wait for the full cleaning and the official opening of the track before engaging in your favourite sport.
