Post Which road course has the Arch?

For some reason I'm spazzing out today and I can't remember the name of the track that has the hard left-hander under a huge stone arch. Like the Arch of Triumph in Paris. It's one of the most recognizable corners in all of motorsport, and I can't remember the name of the stupid track! I've seen it on Speedvision a hundred times.

Somebody smack me after they answer my question...

Isn't this the Formula 1 track in Montreal, Canada? Or am I thinking of Mosport. Man. I can't remember either.

Toronto has the Princess Gate outside the track but I think the one you mean is Three Rivers, Quebec where the course runs directly under the arch onto a straight.

Maybe that's it...

Yes, the course runs through an arch and into a 90 degree left hander. It narrows considerably at the arch and I remember people trading paint there... it was Speedvision GT with an NSX/Viper battle. This was probably two summers ago.

Talking

randy and OnTheGas are right. Well, at least I remembered that it was in Canada somewhere.

It's a nice street circuit w/ elevation changes and stuff.

y2k: Once you see the arch we're talking about, you'll understand that, no, Laguna Seca does NOT have an arch like it.

y2k's thinking of the bridge at Laguna Seca that's made to look like 1/4 of a tire going over the track. Till I read the thread more closely I thought that was what you were talking about too.
