Coming up in spring 2008Å the sequel! This edition will feature a pack of unstoppable young wolves ready to fight it out for the championship and achieve the ultimate triumph on the demanding Gilles-Villeneuve circuit, in a year that celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Grand Prix's arrival to our metropolis.

We are happy to maintain a tradition dear to the hearts of our racing fans: the annual visit of Formula 1 to Montreal, and the presentation of the always exciting Grand Prix of Canada," declared the Executive Vice-President of the organization, François Dumontier. "The loyal fans at the Gilles-Villeneuve circuit know it, nothing equals the experience of the Grand Prix of Canada, at Parc Jean-Drapeau. We gladly become addicted to such an event, to the shivers that overtake the bodies on Friday morning at the sound of the first notes from the symphony of motors, the suspense of Saturday afternoon's qualifying rounds and the excitement of Sunday's spectacular start.

Best of all are the memories that rush through the veins until the next Grand Prix. Those who have not yet lived the experience owe it to themselves. They must live it, as a couple, with the family or among friends," added François Dumontier.

All grandstand and general admission tickets will thus be on sale as of tomorrow. With Christmas just days away, and tickets being the perfect present, orders may be placed through our ticket office at (514) 350-0000 between 8am and 10pm, every day of the week.
