Merci Denis Castilloux et Équipe Course Sécurité / Puits E-Prix Montréal 2017 GP3R Organisation!

Merci, merci, merci beaucoup Denis!

This is a time I really wish I spoke enough French to express my gratitude to my friend Denis Castilloux for an excellent time at this weekend’s Formula E Motreal ePrix! Not only did Denis go out of his way to make me feel welcome, the entire team from GP3R and the local Quebec marshals made me feel part of their family and I appreciate that very much. Merci a tous!

I had the pleasure of working with Denis at the New York City ePrix just a few weeks before we met again on the Canadian soil. Although we’ve known each other for a bit longer through various projects on the Internet including my very own #MarshalCam to which Denis generously contributed with an interview at last week’s event:

So I’m super thrilled to have had this opportunity. I can say with certainty that this visit to Montreal was way better than any of my previous trips up there before. Things went very smoothly, and perfectly. I had only positive experiences and I’m happy to share them with the world.

Denis was also kind enough to introduce me to his colleagues at GP3R, the organizing body behind the marshals at Formula E Montreal ePrix and they all made me feel absolutely welcome, which makes such a huge difference when travelling to volunteer for events. Even though I spoke no French everyone I came in contact with was super friendly and went out of their way to make sure we understood each other, which was awesome. In fact I feel quite guilty that I didn’t do my part and study up a little bit more to at least try and speak in the local language. So Franklish had to do… But it’s certainly on my to-do list. And I definitely want to volunteer for the amazing Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières in the future as well.

So, Merci a tous! Merci beaucoup… A plus tard!

And I intend to be there… it’s been a long while since I visited Montreal for a Motorsport event. Formula 1 just wrapped up and I missed it, but Formula E season finale will be amazing.
