  • 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.
