The Canadian segment of the Formula 1 World Championship, a race held in Montréal since 1978, is a must-attend international event that is synonymous with festivities and the start of Montréal's summer season.

Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, the track on which the motor race is run, is located on Île Notre-Dame at Parc Jean-Drapeau, right in the heart of the majestic Saint Lawrence River.

Formula 1 drivers cover the 4,361 metres of the circuit in under one minute and 15 seconds, with speeds that can reach more than 300 kilometres an hour in the straightaways. Because of its tight 14 turns that put a demand on the brakes of the cars, Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve is conducive to a lot of driving errors and overtaking. The Grand Prix du Canada is a thrilling and spectacular race!

Every year, motor-racing fans gather together at Parc Jean-Drapeau's Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve to enjoy the exhilarating experience the Grand Prix du Canada brings:

  • Official race
  • F1 drivers' parade
  • Qualifying and open testing
  • Ferrari, Porsche and Formula 1600 Challenges
  • Tour of the support races paddocks
  • Race simulators
  • Thematic terraces and official merchandise kiosks
  • An array of activities in the family zone
