Fans will get a special insight into the world of Formula 1 when Canadian Grand Prix organisers host an “Open House” at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve next month.
The free initiative, which takes place on Thursday June 6, will allow fans to spend up time exploring the pit lane and getting a good view of the teams working on the cars before the race on Sunday June 9. Fans will also get the chance to speak to team members.
While at the venue, visitors will gets to see the trophies – designed locally by the BRP Innovation and Design team – which will be awarded to the drivers on the podium after the Canadian Grand Prix.
Elsewhere, cars from the four supporting series for the Montreal event – the Ferrari Challenge, the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, the CTCC and Formula Tour 1600 – will be on show for fans. Visitors will be able to meet the drivers and team members from those four series.
The venue opens at 0900 local time with fans asked to enter via the Cosmos Bridge, close to the Parc Jean-Drapeau Metro station, where they will catch a shuttle bus to the pit lane. Visitors must arrive via the Metro as the site will be closed to cars on the day.
