The Circuit Mont-Tremblant Changes Hands

The famed Circuit Mont-Tremblant hopefully gets a new lease on life

  • Lawrence Stroll, the current part-owner of Aston Martin, was the previous owner.

  • It was purchased by Holand Automotive Group in late July.

Lawrence Stroll bought the track back in 2000 and went through the trouble of overhauling the facility in 2004. This increased activities in the area and the locals did not appreciate it. For a time, there were fears that the track might shut down for good, but it has found a new owner.

In a nutshell, the Circuit Mont-Tremblant has been the target of many local citizens for being too loud. The racetrack was inaugurated in September 1964 and since then, the surrounding area has seen immense housing growth. Many of the new arrivals went on to complain about the track and the noise and activities it generates almost every summer weekend.

Many steps were taken by the Mont-Tremblant inhabitants to limit noise. In fact, the new noise emission standards are now limited to 96db. This new rule has effectively limited the number of racing series that can be held at the track.

There’s hope that some form of racing and lapping will continue to take place at the exquisite facility thanks to new ownership. As reported by Pole Position, Stroll has sold the track to Holand Automotive Group. The latter is a large leading Canadian leasing company and a major player in commercial and consumer leasing and financing. They also own numerous high-end dealerships in Quebec, Ontario, and Florida.

This is good news for driving enthusiasts as the Circuit Mont-Tremblant is not only a world-class venue but also one of the rare remaining tracks in the province.
