The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is a professional racing circuit in Montreal, Quebec. Boundaries running across some parts of the circuit have tripped up numerous reputable drivers over the years. An especially notorious part of the circuit is the divider on the outside of the passageway from the starting line. Try and visit during the racing season. In 2009, the thirty year old Canadian Grand Prix of Formula One at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve was unfortunately dropped from the 2009 Formula One logbook and supplanted with the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. On November 27, 2009, Quebec's authorities and Canadian Grand Prix organizers declared a settlement with the main authoritative bodies of the Formula One Administration and marked the beginning of another five-year contract crossing the 2010–2014 seasons. If visiting off season, the track is still open to biking, skating or a simply walking down St. Lawrence River and downtown Montreal.

  • Great track with a lot of history. Had the chance to cycle around this track on a warm summer day. There’s a subway stop for this track.

  • Beautiful place. If you go for a drive you can not speed up as in F1 (there is 30 km/h speed limit), but it is still awesome and you will experience in first person the Montreal circuit. You can also enjoy the circuit riding a bike or walking. The circuit in on an island on the river next to the city if Montreal, that allows you to enjoy amazing views of the city and take great pictures of it. Around the circuit there are plenty of green areas where you can relax and have a nice picnic. There is also a beach and a casino. If you like architecture, you can go around and discover some beautiful buildings from the Montreal expo 1967. For sure you won't get bored on this little island!

  • I come here for Formula 1. The circuit is EASY to get too. Just hop on the subway and you are there. The best place to watch the race is the hairpin! You can also do a track walk when the racing isn't there.

  • Nice bike path former race track. To tourists, HEED THIS WARNING: There are no signs telling you which way to bike. If you go the wrong way, the locals training will curse at you in French, but if you don't speak French it's not that bad. The correct way to go is clockwise.

  • Love coming to this track for F1. Always well organized and fun. Metro to and from the track is the way to go. City has a great party during the weekend.
