The organizers of the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada confirmed that the traditional and ever popular “Open House” day would be held this Thursday, June 7, at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit.

Between 9:30 am and noon Thursday, race fans will be allowed to walk the Pit Lane while the teams will have their garage doors wide open and the mechanics will be hard at work on the last minute details before hitting the track the next morning for the free practice sessions.

In addition to being able to have a look at the work of the F1 teams, spectators will have the chance to look at some of the cars involved in the support races program such as the Formula 1600 open wheelers, the Porsche GT3 and the spectacular Ferraris.

The F1 drivers will also be in attendance to meet their fans and give autographs. For that reason, the Official souvenir program will be sold on site Thursday.

To attend the ‘’Open House’’ day, fans must take advantage of the collective transportation system, mainly the subway to the Jean Drapeau station.

From there, a short walk on the Cosmos Bridge will take the fans to the loading station where busses will take the visitors to the pit lane area. Later, the same busses will bring them back to this location.

Oh, and by the way, admission is free!
