What other racing will take during the Grand Prix?

For 2019, there are three other race series taking place over the weekend:

Formula Tour 1600 Canada: open-wheel racing powered by similar Ford or Honda engines

Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli: production Ferrari is driven by their owners


How to get to the race?

1. By subway:

The Montreal Metro subway system is modern, safe, fast and convenient. The Gilles Villeneuve Circuit is located at the Jean-Drapeau Metro Station on the Yellow Line. The track is on Ile Notre Dame and a five-minute walk from the metro station. By subway, it’s 15 mins from the city center. Subway is the preferred method of transport for the Grand Prix as it will avoid the ridiculous amount of car traffic that will be present.
Upon exiting the subway there is a 167 bus that will take you from the Metro to the race track.

2. By car:

Arriving by car is not suggested due to traffic and the lack of parking at the track (there is very limited parking Suite ticket holders). There is limited access to the man-made island of Ile Notre Dame where Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is located. It is best to leave your car at the hotel so that you can use public transport to get to the race circuit.

If you insist on driving, take the “Parc Jean-Drapeau” exit of the Jacques-Cartier Bridge. Be mindful that Crescent Street, St-Paul Street, and Peel Street are both closed during race weekend. Give yourself time to get to the race and expect delays on Jacques Cartier Bridge.

You can take an Uber or taxi, but traffic concerns should make this a last resort — traffic will be VERY heavy all weekend.

Once you’re on Ile Notre Dame, there are 3 access point to get to the track: The Gates at the Concorde Bridge, the gates at the Cosmos Bridge and the gates at the Montreal Casino.
