But normally just a road. If you want to race your car or bicycle, certainly more worthwhile. The surrounding park (not part if tjis review) very nice, 4 stars.

The entire city gets geared up for this event which contributes to the success of the race. Just visit Crescent and Peel streets during the event to help get you into the mood. Weather was perfect this year as it's usually cooler with rain on and off but all sun this time around. The race didn't disappoint either with a... More

The Gilles Villeneuve circuit is a great venue for the F1! It's so easy to get to and from the circuit and so the party atmosphere carries over into the city. We had general admission tickets for Sunday only, but got there early to find a good spot in front of the hairpin, in front of a big screen. Security... More

I took my boyfriend to the Formula One Grand Prixe race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve this year and I was a little disappointed that everything was very fenced off. I was on social media the day or two later and found out they had a beach/swimming pool at Gilles Villeneuve.... I feel like they could definitely work on incorporating... More

I grabbed a bike from Montreal on Wheels in Vieux Port / Old Montreal. The circuit is setup in part for bikes or rollerblades. There was a bike rental shop on the island as well. Watch for the serious riders though and stay to the right so you don't cause an accident. It was not very busy when I did... More

After visiting Old Montreal we made our way over to the racing track. Being a racing fan my whole life, when I found out I could drive the course I definitely put this on the to-do list while in Montreal. Speed limit signs posted throughout keep the speeds relatively slow, but I may have stretched it a time or two...... More

It is an excellent place to hold the F1.Lots of space.Facilities were great.The best thing we liked was that you could come and go as you pleased and you could bring food and drink to this event.It was not like some concerts were you cannot bring any food or drinks-you have to buy everything on site. The transportation of people... More

Despite the heat for this year's F1 activities, we had a wonderful experience, and hope to return. (in contrast to the F1 race in Austin, where they make no effort for fan comfort). Had seats in grandstand #15, at the hairpin, which was a terrific spot for viewing the two straights, as well as the hairpin itself. Close to vendors,... More
