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.

  • Entries cheaper, can circulate all over the circuit having no armed grandstands. There are many places, but of course the best views the galleries, which are higher-priced have them. If you want to go to the General, it carries a beach chair and sees very early on the morning of race day. The emotions and the sound is unique. Go out to the track and on the podium at the end of the race, has no price, this attentive at the end of the competition and stay in the circuit at a spot near the podium, where they are to open the doors, which you separate from the track. Then walk a bit through the circuit!

  • If you want to visit formula circuit then this is probably one of the best to go to on a budget. The venue is excellent with fairly easy access to the track. Pre-paid parking is good although on race ...  more »

  • 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.
