Welcome to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, who in just three decades, became a legends racing circuit hosting the Formula 1 Canada Grand Prix and NASCAR Napa Auto Parts 200 presented by Dodge in Montreal.
From the man who conquered it in 1978, and who gave it his name after leaving us in 1982, to today’s Formula 1 and NASCAR heroes, Montreal’s track has challenged some of the greats. Jones, Piquet, Senna and Alonso have won here. The incomparable Schumacher has seen the checkered flag seven times.
The site of Alési’s lone victory and Hamilton’s first, it recently started putting Nascar stars like Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards to the test. It is the track where, like Gilles Villeneuve, drivers such as Carpentier, Fellows and Gilles’ son, Jacques, bask in the adoration of their most devoted fans.
