The track was intended to have hosted its inaugural race in August 1921, however this event had to be cancelled as there was only one entrant. The first car race was held at the circuit in 1922, and two years later saw the first running of the now famous 24 Hours of Francorchamps race.

  • Great circuit, lovely parcous. They organise a lot of fun events like Renault Sport days. Always fun to go there with the kids!
  • die ganze strecke geffalt mir, die eau rouge, die kemmel am meisten.
  • Lots of free events throughout the summer. There's a walking path that goes all around the track, so you can find the best place to watch a race.
  • Fantastic views of the track visited for the Spa Six hour 2016. I love the sharp turns with hills, seems to be an extremely challenging track. The food is good although expensive, arrive early to avoid traffic.
  • Great track, with great viewing points. Make sure you are prepared to walk up and down hill a lot! The facilities in the paddock are great, but can be basic at the back side of the circuit.
