    Report: Student protests in Montreal threaten Canadian Grand Prix
    1338388320

    Motorsports: Penske hires Jacques Villeneuve for two NASCAR Nationwide races
    1337697060

    Unlike his pre-BAR Honda F1 days, Jacques Villeneuve's NASCAR career has been strewn with potholes – and by "potholes" we mean crashes, mechanical failures and lowly finishes. But there have been a few successes, with third-place finishes at Montreal in 2010 and at Road America in 2011 ...

    2011 Canadian Grand Prix packs the action in between the raindrops
    1307921340

    Montreal is unique. It's an island in the middle of a giant river with a volcano at its heart. It's the largest French-speaking city outside Paris, has the lowest legal drinking age anywhere in Canada (or the United States) and has a distinctly European feel for a North American city.
