Circuit Mont Tremblant, Mont Tremblant

Circuit Mont-Tremblant is a 4.26km race circuit about 13km south of the village of Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada. The name of the village of Saint-Jovite was often included in the name of the circuit, but since the village was amalgamated into Mont-Tremblant in the year 2000, it is no longer considered or functions as an independent entity.
The first two sections of the circuit were built in 1964 and extended by another mile into September 1965. The extension featured long straights and by virtue of the terrain, a small hill. Nicknamed "the Hump" it gained legendary status during the inaugural 1966 Can Am race. Two drivers in practice found that their cars, both near identical Lola T70 CanAm cars, launched themselves into the air. Both drivers emerged unhurt but were unable to compete in the race. The Canadian winters quickly rendered the track surface very bumpy and as a result, the attrition rate was quite high in the two Canadian Grand Prix Formula One events staged at the circuit. Of the 40 cars entered in those two races (20 each, in 1968 and 1970), 21 reached the checkered flag (with only 16 classified – the rest finishing too far behind the race winners).
The track complex was purchased by Montreal-based fashion mogul Lawrence Stroll in 2000, who tapped track architect Alan Wilson to redesign the circuit, with the aim of modernizing its safety features in accordance with current FIA regulations. The resulting redevelopment forced the park to close for the entire 2000 and 2001 racing seasons.

  • During the cold season or simply when not used, it is the perfect place where to park. The country around is amazing for a walk, but be careful, it is also a mountain bike area.
  • Amazing place. Love it !
  • Archaic organization of petrol heads producing unbearable, and illegal, level of noise in one of the most beautiful areas of the Laurentides. Can't wait for the actual 20 mil court trial to end those obsolete and unethical commercial activities. Cheers.
  • World class race track. If you ever have the opportunity to get down here and be properly trained on this course, you should definitely do it.
  • The go Keating is super fun. Great value.
