Catch some F1 in Montreal
Fans of Formula One (F1) might like to book a hostel in Montreal in preparation for next month when the Canadian grand prix rolls into town.

The action will take place at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve – named after the former McLaren and Ferrari Canadian racer, who tragically died in a crash - from June 11th through to the 13th.

With cars racing up to 200mph, anyone with a need for speed, or those who just like a bit of excitement, will surely enjoy the occasion. You can go for the practice race, qualifying or even the main event itself, which will see the pros battling it out to come out on top.

If you want to have the best day possible at the racing then it's a good idea to bring binoculars, a camera and a portable radio, according to the track's website. It says they will come in handy for getting a "close-up view of the teams at work if your seat is located in front of the pits".

And if the magical city of Montreal is not enough to get you over to Canada for the occasion, then just take a look at the F1 drivers' and constructors' championship – it sure is close at the top.

Mark Webber currently sits at the summit on 93 points, but he's only just ahead of British duo Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton – who both race for McLaren – by five and nine points respectively.

But the constructors' championship is even tighter with McLaren leading the way by just a solitary point, ahead of Webber's Red Bull team. It might have been a different story but the Australian somehow managed to collide with his colleague Sebastian Vettel in the last race, meaning the German crashed out.

So there should be plenty of excitement in Montreal to keep us all entertained!
