For more than a quarter of a century the world's top motor racing drivers have been meeting at the demanding Gilles-Villeneuve Circuit in Montreal to battle out an important race in the Formula One World Championship. The circuit lies on Ile Notre-Dame, a man-made island in the St Lawrence River. The circuit includes the notorious Bienvenue au Quebec wall, which is wryly known as the 'Wall of Champions' because of all the F1 superstars who have crashed into it. Locals support the event enthusiastically and many people travel to attend it.
