PADDOCKS RENOVATION AT THE CIRCUIT GILLES‑VILLENEUVE

A MODERN INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THE 2019 EDITION OF THE CANADIAN GRAND PRIX

Regarded as the largest tourist event in the country, the Canadian Grand Prix receives an incomparable exposure internationally. The current Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve infrastructures have exceeded their serviceable lifespan and are in need of an upgrade. Formula One World Championship requirements have changed substantially since the first Grand Prix in 1978, particularly in terms of hosting the F1 teams and the technological needs related to the garages, control tower and media areas.

ENSURE THE LONGEVITY OF STAGING THE EVENT
As part of the renewal of the agreement to stage the Canadian Grand Prix from 2015 to 2029, the Société du parc Jean‑Drapeau (SPJD) made the commitment to renovate and expand the Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve infrastructures. The objective of the project is to upgrade the equipment in the paddocks, which were built in 1988, and bring it up to the standards required by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and the Formula One World Championship (FOWC), while increasing the capacity of the loges above the garages to 5,000 people, up from the current capacity of 1,800. The building will be equipped, among other things, with a freight elevator which can be used to bring cars or heavy furniture to each of the levels of the building. It will also have a glassed-in elevator for the clientele.

A MAGNIFICENT BUILDING
The new paddocks will be set up on three storeys, divided in the following manner:

1st storey: F1 team garages, control tower and offices for the staff
2nd storey: Loges, control tower, podium and media areas
3rd storey: Loges and terrace

Construction will start July 3rd : we will keep you posted with pictures and give you access to our field cameras.
