Government pledges $98.2 M to keep Grand Prix in Montreal through 2029

MONTREAL — The Canadian Grand Prix will run at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve at least until 2029.

Mayor Denis Coderre and representatives of the federal and Quebec governments on Friday pledged $98.2 million to a five-year extension of a contract with Formula One owners Liberty Media. The current contract was to expire in 2024.

The federal government will put in $36.2 million, the province $28 million and the city $34 million.

Quebec will also put $18 million toward improvements to the race venue at Jean Drapeau Parc on two islands near downtown Montreal.

Building new paddocks and garages and improving the condition of the 4.361-kilometre track were promised when the current contract was extended but so far, little has been done.

Coderre said work will begin after next year’s Grand Prix and will be completed in time for the 2019 race.

The Grand Prix, celebrating its 50th anniversary, has been held at the venue since 1978. Its paddocks, garages and control tower are considered antiquated and undersized.

No chicane would be even better. But this is worst configuration we could only imagine.

Brooklands racetrack finishing straight reopened

A section of racetrack which had not seen action since 1940 has been restored to how it looked when the circuit was in its heyday.

The world's first purpose-built motor-racing circuit opened at Brooklands, in Surrey, 110 years ago on 17 June.

The Earl of March officially re-opened the finishing straight, which was followed by a parade of historic cars.

The project was carried out with the help of a £4.7m Heritage Lottery Fund grant, a £1m government grant and funds raised by supporters and donors.

The whole idea is to slow the cars down. That straight is too long and too fast. And a quick bus stop would not slow the cars sufficiently.

Slowing down cars is no longer a popular idea. So they should ditch it.
