This week guests will be able to walk on the F1 Grand Prix circuit, the locale for the biggest sports event in the country.
Fans will have the chance to experience what the drivers feel (albeit at a much slower pace) at the historic Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.
See the rubber marks left by cars on the track from the same day, the grandstand that will have already started to welcome thousands of fans, and touch the walls, curbs, and ridges.

Though the famous circuit is usually open to cyclists and athletes, The Grand Walk welcomes hundreds of walkers for the benefit of the Heart & Stroke Foundation with all proceeds going towards the cause.
Sunday’s race on the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve will feature 70 laps, covering 4,361 metres, and an 80% safety car probability.
But walkers won’t have to worry about that.
You’ll be able to trek the course from 6 pm to 9 pm and your laps come with a 100% safety probability. (Just tie your shoes.)
Ticket holders for the Grand Walk will receive a free Grandstand 47 ticket for Friday’s time trials.
Prices range from $20 for children aged 4 to 11 and $45 for adults. Kids aged 0 to 3 get to tackle the track for free.
