The world’s premier motorsport racing series returns to North America June 7–9 for the 2013 FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DU CANADA. Following intensive discussion regarding Pirelli’s performance-oriented tire range for the 2013 FORMULA 1 season, the 2013 FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DU CANADA will mark the first race since the series commencement in Australia mid-March that the brand implements a new range of tires featuring revised construction. The reengineered compounds mix the stability of 2012 and the performance of 2013. Compound modifications aside, Pirelli will continue to host an interactive display area on Crescent street where fans can take pictures with Pirelli girls, race on one of four racing simulators and see the 2011 Lotus Renault FORMULA 1 show car. Also on display will be Pirelli’s complete 2013 FORMULA 1 tire range.
The Ferrari Challenge and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge will run as support races to the weekend’s FORMULA 1 activity. Practice, qualifying and race will take place prior to the main event Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
Fans are invited to visit Pirelli North America’s Facebook page for a chance to win an exciting trip for two to the FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DU CANADA. The trip includes round-trip airfare for two, hotel accommodations for three nights and two tickets to the race, valid for the entire race weekend – a package valued at over $4,000 USD. Contest ends 11:59 p.m ET May 19.
