Tucked away in the heart of the Ardennes Forest in the quiet corner of Eastern Belgium, Spa is widely regarded as the most picturesque motor racing circuits in the world which comes alive every August with the sights and sounds of Formula One for one the hotly anticipated races of the season.
The circuit at Spa Francorchamp has hosted the world’s elite motor racing championship intermittently since 1925, when its layout was notoriously long and dangerous.
Today, although its layout has changed somewhat, it remains the longest and fastest circuit on the calendar, featuring a brilliant combination of huge straights and demanding technical sections which always deliver pulsating action from the moment the lights go out.
Throw Spa’s unpredictable weather into the mix (it’s not uncommon for races to start under cloudless skies and end in torrential rain!) and you have the perfect ingredients for the brilliant race.
As well as the promise of wing to wing action, Spa delivers some of the most breath-taking sights in Formula One
Watching the super-fast Formula One chargers tackle the famous Eau Rouge corner and power up the Kemmel Straight at maximum speed is a sight that will last with you forever. Alternatively, stand by La Source hairpin or the famous Bus Stop chicane to get a closer view of the drivers' skills.
So challenging are the demands of Spa that only a handful of drivers have managed to win at this track more than twice.
