Site of the F1 race for many years, a great weekend of racing activities, make sure to bring your own water, snacks and beer in a cooler. Wear comfortable shoes and expect to walk a lot. Take the METRO subway for a fast trip, lots of good places to see the action, but going home after the race will take... More

Montrealers like to assume the affectation that they are hockey fans to the exclusion of all else. That formula one racing doesn't exist. That "Eurotrash" descends upon the city once a year when the F1 circus comes to town. The truth is far from it. Interest in F1 is deeply ingrained within the City, the Province, and indeed the Country.... More

I would say the #1 reason why we came to Montreal, but then again we were also at a Stag party so I could be lying. The track is great located near the casino and a unique european style compared to Circuit of the Americas that is out in a Texas Cow patty field. Best part they let us walk... More

It's a beautiful area. I love F1 and was excited to ride my bike around the track. It gave me a realistic view.

This has been a dream of mine to drive or cycle on the circuit and finally had the chance to go and cycle just to find everything closed on Sep 11. It seems like the season ended already and we could not even find something to eat other than at the Casino. On the internet we found options to rent... More

Canada is always a great GP, the atmosphere is wonderful, the fans get so excited and the city puts on special free events during the week. Getting to the track is best on the Metro. Do not try to drive, there is no real parking and the traffic is terrible. Get the metro or cycle!!

Went once a couple of years ago and never missed a F1 race since. This event is number 1 on my list of things to do in Montreal every year.

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
