Yeah, the races are cool and all but as far as we’re concerned the Canadian Grand Prix is mostly about the drinking, partying with tourists and general public shamelessness.
Local clubs host insane parties, streets are closed to traffic and race fans come from all over the world to be part of it.
If you plan on being part of the madness next weekend, strap on a helmet and brace yourself. There are lots of event happening all over the city to get your rocks off.
