Name: Circuit Gilles Villeneuve
Where: Île Notre-Dame, Montréal, Québec
When: 2012, 2013
Why: Canadian F1 Grand Prix
Who: Club de Île Notre-Dame
Notes: My first experience volunteering north of the border was for the F1 Canadian Grand Prix. I repeated the trip twice and both times got held up and thoroughly checked at the border on suspicion of working in Canada. Coupled with me getting in trouble for taking pictures of some race cars at the event, I decided not to continue participating here in the future.
