Following a two-year hiatus from hosting a race in Canada, Formula 1 is finally heading back to Montreal next summer! What’s more, a new announcement from the event organizers today has given us an official date for when we can grab tickets. Here’s what to know.
Held at Montreal’s Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, the Canadian Grand Prix has been a staple event for Formula 1, on and off, since 1978. Winding around Parc Jean-Drapeau, the venue is infamous, in part, due to Montreal’s volatile summer weather. But, no matter the conditions, the race has long been a must-see for Montreal residents and racing fans around the world alike.

Naturally, we’re excited about its return. Tickets for the 2022 race, which will be held the weekend of June 17th, 2022, will officially go on sale on December 6th. So, whether you’re looking to grab front-row seats, or hang out in the nosebleeds, make sure to mark your calendars and ask your friends if they want to go!
For more information on the return of the Canadian Grand Prix next year, you can head to the official website. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we need to check in with our own friends and see if they’re down to clown for a weekend in Montreal.
