I drove here expecting to get a view of the circuit. But once i got there i realized i can drive on the grand prix road ..only at 30kmph. The circuit acts like part of a park when grand prix is over. You can drive almost 9/10 of the circuit. Go to the Casino and from the parking lot you... More

I was looking forward to this excursion as an avid F1 fan and I have to say I loved it! Its very easy to get to on the metro and you just hop over to the circuit island which is a about a 5 minute walk. I went around with my wife who is not an F1 fan and frankly... More

The Gilles Villeneuve circuit is beautiful, it is something everyone must visit. There's a bike rental where you can take them to ride those vehicles in a full lap of the circuit. It is short, so you will not make so much effort. If they named this circuit in honor of the dead Formula 1 pilot, he would be so... More

We visited just a week before the Grand Prix so everything was in the process of getting set up. To be so close to the city for this track is a major advantage as everything is on your doorstep. It would be great to come back after the grand prix and to be able drive on the track. This track... More

One of the best Formula One circuits anywhere, and with so much more to see and do on the island, you can be there for days!

I am a gear head, what can I say? Love the zoom zoom. Thank God for ear plugs. Love all the action in & around Montreal at this time. I also like how close the Casino de Montreal is to this race track. I used to roller blade on this race track. Ah, Montreal.

Great location on the Ille Notre Dame but easily accessible from Central Montreal. Despite the crowds the metro moved fabulously well and made for an efficient exit. Track great and I'm pleased their contract has been renewed for another 10 years. Circuit food actually not bad; wouldn't win fine dining awards but I've had far worse at comparable events and...

It is good to travel around on a bike and see the circuit, disappointing there is no visitors center, that is a let down
