The Circuit Trois-Rivières is a street circuit located in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada and has been the home of the annual Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières since 1967. The circuit is located on the Terrain de l'Exposition (fairgrounds) and is unusual in that it passes through Porte Duplessis, the narrow concrete gateway of the grounds at turn 3.[1] In recent times the circuit has hosted only one major race weekend each year.

Throughout its history the circuit has hosted numerous major North American racing series including the American Le Mans Series, the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, the Trans-Am Series, Can-Am, Indy Lights and Formula Atlantic.

The Grand Prix has been headlined by the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series since 2007, and in 2014 will be joined by the FIA World Rallycross Championship and its inaugural World RX of Canada race.
