The driver "meet and greet" will include a rare private meeting and photo opportunity with Michael Schumacher and Mark Webber, as well as a quick tour of their race cars. Michael Schumacher (Germany), driver for the Mercedes/AMG F1 team, is a seven-time Formula One World Champion, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time. He holds many of the Formula's driver records including the most championships, race victories, fastest laps, pole positions, points scored and most races won in a single season – 13 in 2004. According to the official Formula One website, he is "statistically the greatest driver the sport has ever seen.” Mark Webber (Australia), driver for the Red Bull F1 team, is a reigning F1 championship team driver, 7-time Formula One race winner (including the 2010 Monaco Grand Prix), and a 2012 World Championship favorite.
The luxury hotel is ideally located so guests may enjoy the best of Montréal, and will also host top Formula One personnel. The surrounding neighborhood of Old Montreal abounds with magnificent architecture, art galleries, cafés, boutiques and some of the city’s finest restaurants. The Old Port, with its IMAX theatre and river cruises, is steps away from the Palais des Congrès convention center, Multimedia City and downtown Montreal.
The Formula One Grand Prix Du Canada is the longest running Grand Prix held outside of Europe, running over 30 editions in Montréal. It is one of the most sought-after races to attend on the annual calendar, and draws some of the largest crowds in the circuit. Scheduled for June 8-10, 2012 in Montréal, QC, Canada, this package will provide all the romance of Formula One in an unforgettable way. This package represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for any true Formula One racing fan, as well as the opportunity to help Austin-area children.
