The Canadian Grand Prix is the country's biggest sport event and one of the best F1 rounds to attend. It takes place on the 10-11-12 June 2016 in Montréal, a city where North America takes on European charms. As well as being Canada's cultural hub, the city enjoys a brilliant party atmosphere during the weekend, which is reminiscent to that of Melbourne, Singapore or even Austin. And although it might be the second biggest French speaking city in the world, Montréal is a bilingual place where English is widely spoken.

Attendance is traditionally high and most grandstands will be quite full, if not sold out. There is plenty to do and see back in the city centre once the on-track activities have finished for the day. Rue Sainte-Catherine and Rue Crescent are great spots for bars and partying day and night. Little Italy is more focussed on food and restaurants.

The race at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve is generally action packed. Over the past few years, we've witnessed Daniel Ricciardo's maiden win, Jenson Button's success from the back in 2011 and a pitlane pile up that allowed Robert Kubica to win for BMW-Sauber in 2008. Support series this year include rounds 3&4 of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, two Ferrari Challenge and a Formula Tour 1600 races.

The Malaysian round of the championship takes place near Kuala Lumpur at the Sepang International Circuit on the 27-28-29 March 2015. It will be the first time of the year cars compete on a purpose-built F1 track and the perfect place to find out who's hot and who's not.

With its contract up for renewal, it might be the last opportunity to attend a grand prix at bargain prices. The Formula 1 Malaysia Grand Prix has the most affordable tickets on the calendar and it is competitively priced against other F1 race weekends in the region. Accommodation, transport and food costs are relatively low compared to most western countries. KL is also the hub for AirAsia, a leading low cost carrier in the Asia-Pacific region.

Another reason to go is the unparalleled views from most grandstands and other various vantage points around the track. Unlike the semi-street circuit of Melbourne, it is possible to see as much as half of the circuit from your seat or hillstand (similar to general admission). The track features several fast sweeping bends which give the cars a noticeable rhythm that is a pleasure to drive or to watch.

Support series no longer features GP2 or Porsche Carrera Cup Asia rounds and instead the organisers are focusing on off-track activities. Promoters are taking advantage of the reduced noise levels of F1 cars to market the event towards families so expect to see a water course cool zone, a ferris wheel and other family friendly activities. That said, there will be a couple of domestic touring car series on track between F1 sessions. Lenny Kravitz had to cancel his after the race concert and a couple of K-pop bands will perform at the helipad stage instead on Sunday.

The atmosphere in KL during the weekend is festive and charming thanks to its diverse mix of Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures. The city is still developing rapidly making it another reason for visiting frequently, whether for the F1 or MotoGP weekends. KL is a popular shopping destination and has a huge selection of cuisines to choose from. If this is your first time in KL, a trip to KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre) to see the magnificent Petronas Twin Towers is almost compulsory.
