CANADIAN GRAND PRIX

This race dates back to 1967, the first of eight times it was held at Mosport Park in Toronto. There were also two Grands Prix staged at Mont Tremblant, a ski resort up country from Montreal. Inevitably, thanks to the popularity and success of Gilles Villeneuve, the race then moved to the city itself in 1978. The venue is the Ile Notre Dame, which was the site in 1967 of "Expo 67," a giant world fair celebrating "The Peoples of the Earth." "It was the summer of love and the summer of Expo," wrote a local hippy poet. While making love remained popular, making Expo didn't and the following year the island was part of the site for the 1968 Olympic Games and today, the F1 teams' hospitality units sit on what was the Olympic Rowing Basin. The track is a short metro ride from the centre of a city that always gives F1 a warm welcome, even though apart from the Villeneuves pere et fils, there have only been nine other Canadian F1 drivers, none of them doing anything worthy of note.
