For the fourth consecutive year, the Grand Prix of Canada is a partner at the auto Show in Toronto with a banner that is highly visible in the exhibition.
However, it is necessary to ask once again, why his promoter to focus on the Queen City rather than Montreal, which organizes this kind of event a few weeks earlier ?
“Toronto is a big market for us, meets François Dumontier. All the more that this year a pilot of the place, Nicholas Latifi, will be hired full-time in F1 with Williams. We are not talking about the GP Montreal, but of Canada. ”
Still, the race fans of Montreal would also be entitled to a presence in the Grand Prix of Canada at the auto Show. This would be an added value.
“We have nothing against Montreal,” says Dumontier. We contacted the organisers a few times, but we were suggested a location that does not meet our expectations, often in a place lost to the Congress Palace. ”
Tribute to McLaren
The Newspaper had lamented about the situation a few weeks ago.
“Since the publication of your story, said Dumontier, we feel an opening of the Salon de Montréal. We’ll see for the next year. ”
In 2020, Toronto offers its visitors a remarkable exhibition devoted to the prestigious McLaren team. Seven cars, from different eras are exhibited.
The stable Racing Point, not without controversy, had chosen Toronto, to the same date last year, to proceed with the launch of its new single-seater. Lovers, furious, had not failed to complain about the situation on social networks.
