Circuit information

The Belgian Grand Prix is held close to two small towns in the Ardennes, Spa and Francorchamps, approximately 130 kilometers south-east of Brussels. The Belgian Grand Prix was held at Spa-Francorchamps for the first time in 1924. It is considered to be one of the most challenging circuits of the world, mainly due to its fast, hilly and twisty nature.

Over the years, the Spa course has been modified several times. The biggest change saw the circuit being shortened from 14 km to 7 km in 1979. Like its predecessor the new layout still is a fast and hilly route where speeds in excess of 300 km/h can be reached. Since inception, the place has been famous for its unpredictable weather: often one part of the course is crystal clear and bright while another part is rainy and slippery giving a headache to drivers and teams. The longest circuit in the current F1 calendar has 21 turns including the legendary Eau Rouge and Bus Stop and the most fearsome turn in F1 racing, Blanchimont.

Drivers and fans alike love races at Spa-Francorchamps. A dull race at Spa is very rare, and most drivers today say that the course is one of the most challenging race tracks in the world. Make sure you order your F1 tickets now and become a witness of this year's excitement at Spa-Francorchamps.
