Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

Despite the fact that in Canada now there are severe frosts and the air temperature drops to extreme cold, the contractor does not stop the reconstruction of the Montreal's Circuit.

It is noted that when planning work, the weather conditions risks were brought into the reconstruction schedule, and therefore there are no problems now, because part of the work is being done indoors, and only after that structures are mounted outdoors.

At the same time, it is reported that the preliminary project cost of $59 million, allocated from various municipal budgets of Canada, and not private investors, on the contrary, may go beyond the scope of the planned and may exceed the bar.

Soon in the weather will change and the pace of work will be increased in order to finish the reconstruction as soon as possible.

Gilles Villeneuve Circuit is a Canadian auto racing circuit located in Montreal. Used for Canadian Formula One Grand Prix racing, Champ Car racing (2002-2006) and NASCAR Nationwide Series. The track was built on the artificial island of Notre Dame on the St. Lawrence River. A speedway was named after Canadian race driver Gilles Villeneuve in 1982, before that it was called Notre Dame.

After Gilles Villeneuve's early passing Montreal retained its knack of providing memorable races: Thierry Boutsen disrupted the era of McLaren-Honda dominance by winning the 1989 race, coming back from 12th place mid-race in changeable conditions. In 1991 Nigel Mansell leading by a country mile let his revs drop too low after waving at the crowd in celebration on his final tour, causing his car astonishingly to roll to a halt and allowing his bitter rival Nelson Piquet, far back, through for his last ever victory. In 1995 there was not a dry eye in the house as Jean Alesi, a driver who embodied the spirit of Gilles Villeneuve more than any other since possibly, claimed his one and only Grand Prix win, and did so in a scarlet number 27 Ferrari that Gilles himself was most commonly associated with (the race also had many parallels with Gilles's 1978 triumph).
