Grand Prix

The Formula One Grand Prix of Canada is taking place this weekend and I am going! Ever since I moved to Montréal I’ve attended the race. This weekend is filled with activities. Tomorrow the action will begin on île Ste-Hélène! There is the Open Pits day from 9h to 13h. That’s your chance to get an upclose look at the cars and mechanics at work. Then Friday, Saturday and Sunday the drivers will speed around the track in their sleek Formula 1 cars. Surrounding the Grand Prix there are also activities downtown: Crescent, Peel and (also new from this year) adjacent to the Bell Centre at René Lévesque and Drummond. You’ll find cars on display, demonstrations, concerts, etc. Lots to do this weekend for race lovers!

    Honestly I was not that much impressed by Grand Prix weekend in Montreal, so much anticipated here by my friends. I didn’t attend the races themselves, but on Saturday went to rue Peel and Crescent to smell the atmospehere. It was so much packed by people, so that it was difficult to enjoy it to the full extent. Open traffic through St.-Catherine was the most annoying…why not to close it?
