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.

  • The most beautiful track of all time. Great track facilities, excellent food. Forests around the track are amazing! Cant wait for next visit! 
  • One of the best motorsport places on earth. F1 is great and the LMP / GT cars even better value. Facilities are superb, easy access to car parks and reasonably priced drinks / snacks.
  • One of the most beautiful race tracks on this planet, also for the spectators you can get pretty up close to watch the race. I was here for the 6 hours FIA World Endurance Race, which is a total blast to view here. Last stop prior to the 24hr of Le Mans
