History

Montreal

Current venue: Montreal

The Canadian GP became a World Championship race in 1967. It was first held at Mosport Park, moving to St Jovite in 1968 and 1970. In 1978 safety at Mosport Park was becoming a problem and so a new track was built in record time at Ile de Notre Dame in the middle of the St Laurence Seaway. It was finished just in time for the 1978 GP and fittingly the Canadian Gilles Villeneuve won the race.

The Canadian GP has been run there ever since.
