Canadian Grand Prix Schedule
The Canadian Grand Prix has been one of the highlights of the Formula 1 racing season
since it first became part of the Formula One World Championship in 1967. The Canadian Grand Prix regularly is one of the
most watched sports events, ranking up there with the Super Bowl and The UEFA Championships, and while it can be enjoyed on
TV, there is nothing quite as thrilling as being in the grandstands as the cars are roaring around the track. The twists and
turns involved in the popular race make it as breath taking to watch as it is to drive and no race fan in the world will want
to miss out on the opportunity to attend this event.
The 2014 Canadian Grand Prox will be held from June 6th through
June 8th at Gilles Villeneuve Circuit in Montreal, Quebec. Summer is the perfect time to visit Montreal even if you are not
planning on attending a world class sporting event, but when the Canadian Grand Prix is taking place, it is hard to say no
to a long weekend in Quebec. You can be sure that tickets for this event will sell out quickly so be sure to pick up your
Canadian Grand Prix tickets from StubHub as soon as possible.
Canadian Grand Prix Formula One Racing
1 racing or F1, is the top class of single seat car racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile,
also known as FIA, and provides race fans with some of the most exciting races to be found anywhere in the world. The cars
involved in Formula 1 are the fastest multi-turn racing cars in the world and can corner a turn quicker than any other multiple
axle vehicles. There are a series of races known as the Grand Prix which are used to compile points based on finishing positions
and two championships are awarded at the end of the season, one for the drivers and one for the constructors. The history
of the Grand Prix goes back to 1906 and has traditionally been based in Europe but in recent years the worldwide fan base
has expanded exponentially and now only about half of the season's races are held in Europe while the rest are held on other
continents. In the second half of the Twentieth Century the sport really began to become a global sport and each year more
and more fans are drawn to the speed and beauty of the cars as well as the athleticism and determination of the drivers who
participate in Formula 1 racing.
The drivers participating in the Canadian Grand Prix are
hands down some of the best race car drivers in the world and when you witness them zooming by at unbelievable speeds you
will see first hand just how incredible their accomplishments are. Michael Shumacher is way ahead of the other drivers with
seven victories in the event while Nelson Piquet and Lewis Hamilton are tied for second with three victories apiece. Five
racers have won the Canadian Grand Prix twice: Pedro Rodriguez, Jacky Ickx, Jackie Stewart, Alan Jones, and Ayrton Senna.
it comes to the constructors, Ferrari and McLaren are setting the pace with an astonishing 13 victories each at the Canadian
Grand Prix. Williams follows up with 7 wins, while Brabham has thus far compiled four. Lotus, Tyrrel, and Benetton have each
won the Canadian Grand Prix twice.
Although many race fans are content to watch a big time
race at home on their flat screen laying down on their couch, there is really no comparison to actually being in the stands
for a major Formula 1 race. From the barbecuing and tailgating leading up to the race with the flags of the spectators' favorite
teams and drivers proudly flying outside of the race track to the moment you set foot into the speedway you know that there
is a whole new level of excitement when you actually watch a race in person. The smell of the gasoline, the roars of the engines,
and the screeching tires as they hit a turn all make for an experience that borderlines on sensory overload and makes Formula
1 one of the most popular sports in the world. be sure to be there in Austin, Texas for the U.S. Grand Prix to be part of
an event you will never forget.
While the Canadian Grand Prix has been part of the Formula One
World Championship since 1967, it has been held since 1961. The event was originally held at Mosport Park in Ottawa but after
1967 began alternating between Circuit Mont-Tremblant in Quebec and Mosport Park. In 1971 Formula One moved the event back
to a permanent home at Mosport due to safety concerns for the drivers. However, similar safety issues arose in Mosport Park
and the Canadian Grand Prix was moved to its current home of Gilles Villeneuve Circuit in Montreal after the 1978 race.
