This summer, for the 35th time, our city will play host to the world’s greatest athletes in two venues that have now reached mythical status: the circuit Gilles-Villeneuve and the Uniprix Stadium at Jarry Park, and we simply had to do something special for this occasion. As Montrealers, we are very proud to combine forces with Eugène Lapierre’s team and the Rogers Cup to thank our respective fans for their unwavering loyalty”, stated François Dumontier, President and Chief Executive Officer of Groupe de course Octane and the FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DU CANADA.
