Circuit type: Temporary street course
Formula E's first venture into Canada comes on the streets of Montreal, a city that is very familiar to motorsport, thanks to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, which sits just over a mile away across the St Lawrence river.
The 1.71 miles (2.75km) circuit - which is still subject to FIA homologation - will host the finale of the 2017-17 series for the electric racers, with a double-header event on on July 29 & 30.
City fathers have agreed a three-year deal with Formula E bosses, and will spend around $4.5 million to improve the streets that will be used as the race track. The street course consists of 14 turns and runs from Papineau Avenue to Berri Street, along René Levesque Boulevard., Viger Street, Notre Dame Street. and St. Antoine Street, surrounding the Radio Canada building and passing through the city's Gay Village and the outskirts of Old Montreal .
The course could cause some local controversy, as its route will cut off a number of homes and businesses as well as cutting across the entrance to the westbound Ville Marie Expressway, though the mayor says this will alleviated by careful liaison with local people and the use of a number of temporary crossover bridges.
The Montreal ePrix is located in the borough of Ville-Marie, in the Centre-South district of the city, in Quebec, Canada. The nearest airport is Pierre Elliott-Trudeau International Airport. From the terminal, you can reach the downtown core in less than 20 minutes. Shuttle buses, taxis and limousines, service all major downtown hotels from the airport.
