MONTRÉAL, F1 HOLY GROUND

October 8, 1978: Montreal's first Grand Prix du Canada is held on an island in the middle of the St. Lawrence. A native son, driving a Ferrari, wins his first world championship race.
 
On that day more than three decades ago, Montreal, Ile Notre-Dame and its 4.5-kilometre track became more than a city, an island and a ribbon of pavement. They became Formula One holy ground.
 
From year to year ever since, every June, tens of thousands of pilgrims have flocked to the island to watch the gods of motor racing. First there was Gilles Villeneuve.
 
Then came Jones, Piquet, Mansell, Senna, Prost, Schumacher, Hill, Alonso, Hamilton and others. They come to conquer. They keep building on the legend of this always-thrilling Grand Prix. Now it's your turn: join us on June 10, 11 and 12, 2011.
