This weekend the NASCAR circus hits Montreal. Not exactly the same as Formula 1, but loud, fast, exciting and – perhaps most importantly – tourist dollar injecting!
This year’s event features a large number of Canadian drivers including Jacques Villeneuve, Patrick Carpentier, and Alex Tagliani.
While the race will no doubt be hard fought, I think it would give the Quebec drivers an edge if the race were moved from the smooth surface of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve to the streets of Montreal and the potholes, construction cones and half-buried tram tracks were left as they are!! Quebecers are more than familiar with driving under these conditions.
