The circus that is Formula 1 racing has arrived in Montreal for its annual visit and injection of about $100 million into the local economy. The fears that the current student protests would have a negative effect on the event have, so far, been quelled – all the students did was get naked!! Now Montreal can offer not only a world class Grand Prix, but flocks of naked students marching and banging pots – as reported in Australian media. What’s not to like. One can only hope that a more radical element does not decide to do something potentially dangerous at the track on race day.
