Tourist Spot Auto Race Track
Admire an impressive race track, used throughout the year for a host of recreational activities, at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. First opened in 1978, the track provides the venue for the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix. Instead of laying dormant for the rest of the year, the track opens to the public as part of a park located on the same artificial island. Come here to run, bike, skate, and drive on the professional race track, admiring the design of its 13 turns and viewing platforms.

  • My first visit to Montreal and an F1 race. It sure is a long walk from the entrance to pit road. The sun and heat had everyone searching for shade, so many people were packed behind the food stands un...  more »
  • Went there for the F1 Grand Prix. There is no many options to get in there, any way you will have a good walk, which is nice and in the nature most of the time, from the entrance to the stand 11 it's ...  more »
  • Third time at this race. Excellent race. Bit of a hassle trying to leave on race day. I think an alternative to the subway would be really appreciated by race fans. Specifically a ferry service of som...  more »

  • Was there for the Grand Prix 2017. Was quite well organized for such a massive event, albeit a long enough wait time on Friday, which was rectified for Saturday and Sunday. Top notch facilities once inside. The event evolves from year to year, keeping it fresh and interesting. For 2017, the classic F1 cars were absolutely amazing.
  • Attended the Canadian Grand Prix here and loved it. General admission area though cheap does'nt provide good views. Grandstands have excellent views but 1. Carry your own cushions 2. No shade so best to have sunblock and hats for summer months.
  • I have been here for the last 3 years..... All well except for one thing that is spoiling everything. For all the money you spend on sitting on one of the grandstands, they sit you down on metal benches. Just grandstand 1 has seats , I believe. These benches are massively uncomfortable.... You have no space and no back support. It is absolutely the most uncomfortable race on the calendar for spectators. Look around at other circuits , where they have nice seating...... Actually: the rowing area beside the circuit has nice seats. ... At least you can go there in-between and rest your back. for that: this circuit gets this lousy rating.
  • Great formula one race venue. Prepare to walk a lot and make sure you bring sunscreen. Would highly recommend getting a grandstand seat, as there are limited amounts of general admission areas.
  • The F1 experience here is mind blowing. If you're on the Senna Corner prepare to walk. Police are morons for event parking and taxi drop off so prep for that as best as you can. Fairly liberal drink and cooler policy, BYOB.
