    So, what is your gut feeling on dates for 2015? Based on previous years, it should be June 5-7, but with the new venues that are to come on board next year……? I really want to return, having gone this year. Had a fantastic time, Montreal was so easy to get around & the atmosphere was terrific! Just really paranoid about booking anything before the schedule comes out in December.

    I am also waiting for the official date to be announced so I can book my flight and accommodations. What I read so far is that (like you said) it will take place on 5-7 June, but we won’t be sure until the official announcement.

    It will be the first F1 Grand Prix that I attend, so my expectations are very high. Any tips and tricks are very welcome :-)

    Edit: I found a link with a provisional calendar: The official calendar should be available at the end of September. On the same site, tickets to the 2015 Canadian GP can already be bought.

    Will be my first GP. I am going with 4 other friends all in our Mid 20’s. Anyone have any recommendations for a hotel thats close to the course, but also close to the bars for after the race? Also – Which grandstand is the best for us to get tickets to? Thanks everyone!

    Just confirmed travel arangements and ticket in stand 11. The folks at the phone center of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve were very helpful in getting the section and seat I wanted in spite of the Texan/French language divide.
    My first race at CGV and I am really looking forward to it. I am rather fond of the old school tracks as I began my F1 viewing at Watkins Glen. See you there!

    Does anyone know if it is better to take the metro or ferry on race day? My family is staying over by the Latin quarter.

    Also, what are some great things to do in Montréal? We are staying for all three days so we have some time to do things.

    It is my first time going to a Grand Prix, so I am looking forward to it!

    Hi Adam,
    You should definitely take the metro to get to the track.
    Depending on where your seats are you will have to walk a bit (hairpin) or a lot (Senna corners). But it’s a nice walk through a park.
    Lots to do in Montreal. I would recommend Crescent street which is where the F1 party happens all week long. Mont-Royal is worth it, nice walk in the mountain. Old Montreal is a must. Mont-Royal avenue, St-Laurence and Ste-Catherine streets are also great to walk.
    Hope this helps.
    Enjoy the race and Montreal!

    We’re going this year, looking at doing the Senna Trio tickets as we like moving grandstands per day. It says grand stand 12 rather than 11 though which from what I gather 11 is a bit better view, but I’m sure it’ll be good whatever. Never been to Canada before (we’re heading from the UK) so gonna extend our trip to Toronto too.
