The Formula One race in Montreal was held in the fall, from 1978 to 1981. The Canadian Grand Prix enjoyed great success with motor-racing fans, especially because of the presence of Quebec-born driver Gilles Villeneuve. In fact, Villeneuve garnered his first Formula One victory in the inaugural race on the Montreal circuit in 1978. The Montreal track was officially renamed in 1982, honouring Gilles Villeneuve, who died earlier that year during qualifications for the Belgian Grand Prix. Major changes were made to Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in 1988, as the pit lane was moved from the southeast to the southwest area of the track. Garages and a new control tower were also built. The Canadian Grand Prix has been held in June since 1988.
