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.HistoryThe 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.

  • GOOD THING IT'S DESIGNED TO BE LOUD. IMAGINE THE ANIMALS AND WILDLIFE THAT WOULD BE OF CONCERN IF YOU WANT TO LOOK AND ENJOY NATURE DON'T BE AT A RACE TRACK WITH GASOLINE AND DIESELS RUNNING ALL DAY YOU FN MORON.. EITHER YOUR A TREE HUGGER OR YOUR NOT. DON'T BE BOTH SIDED F#/& STICK COMPLAINERS
  • Very fun track to drive. Nothing like Namrho.
  • The level of noise produced by race cars is simply unbearable. It resonates across the whole valley and makes it impossible to enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife. The races start at 9 a.m and do not end until the evening. It is completely beyond my comprehension as to who in their right mind would allow for this facility to operate in this environment which has traditionally always been a destination to enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife. I call on all nature lovers to express their dissatisfaction by writing a review for this business. You should be relocated far away as soon as possible.
  • Fantastic track. A better restroom would be great
  • Awesome! I enjoyed it more than the F1 race. Great racing.
