Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

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.
