I was able to attend the 2010 Canadian GP. I sat in the hairpin, grandstand 24 section 9 and it was quite a sight seeing those cars brake from 300km/h!
And boy the rush at the beginning of the race… I could hear the cars start but wow, to hear those cars screaming down the back straight on the first lap, then a symphony of downshifting… just unreal!
If I were to do it again though, I would sit in grandstand 21, still on the hairpin (the other side), but closer to the park entrance. It’s the one directly in front of the northern entrance as you walk in. During race day & quali, from that point, it took me 45 mins to walk around the hairpin to grandstand 24! That’s precious time I could have spent walking to the Budweiser girls or better yet… drinking beer!
Anyway, to anyone going to the Canadian GP, you will love it. The fans, the cars, the vintage cars, it’s all worth it. Loved it.
