The Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps has hosted an F1 GP race every year since 1985 with the exception of 2003 and 2006.

It is famous/infamous for two corners in particular, Eau Rouge and Radillon. Cars take these two corners flat out as they ascend a steep climb. This section of track has seen a number of deaths and has now been re-modelled to make it safer.

All the drivers enter the track at the main entrance and drive around to the multistorey car park. From there, they can choose whether to walk to the lower or upper swipe gates. That’s right, the Spa paddock is laid out over two levels with two staircases in the paddock connecting the levels.

KYM'S TIP

There is a lively social scene along the main road that leads to the track about 100m from the Hotel De La Source. Many choose to kick on there at the end of the day and wait for the traffic to clear.

The circuit is about 20 minutes from the small town of Spa. Good quality hotel accommodation close by is hard to find during the grand prix as the teams get first crack at them.

On the Wednesday prior to the race, many of the drivers arrive via private planes into Liege airport and then either drive to the track (40 mins) or take a helicopter (10 minutes). They then depart from Liege airport on Sunday night.

The most popular hotel with the drivers is the Hotel De La Source, is a mere 150 metres from the first corner. Rooms are nigh-on impossible to book over the race weekend and the rates are right up there with Monaco but you’re almost staying on the track. If you’re hoping to see the drivers coming and going from this hotel, it’s a long shot as security is tight.

Those who don’t stay at De La Source often bring their own motorhome and stay in a secure area with the other drivers in motorhomes.

There are a number of smaller, family run hotels in the region and the city of Liege is about 50kms away but be aware that the traffic into and out of the track is heavy on the weekend.
