The Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is a permanent racetrack in the hilly Belgian Ardennes that is largely covered with pine forests. It is only about 30 kilometers away from the German border. While its original length in 1921 was 14.8 kilometers, it was shortened by about half until 1979 and nowadays is the longest route in the F1 calendar with its 7 kilometers. The circuit of Spa-Francorchamps is highly appreciated by both drivers and organizers and is a synonym for modernity and safety, not least due to its spacious run-off zones. Furthermore, it is continually adapted to the latest safety standards of the FIA. This, however, does not detract from the fun of driving, but quite the opposite: due to its altitude difference of a total of 100 meters and its numerous fast curves, Spa-Francorchamps is nicknamed “Ardennen-Achterbahn” (Ardennes roller coaster). The most legendary section of the circuit undoubtedly is the “Eau Rouge”, a left-right chicane with a gradient of up to 18 percent. Enjoy this unique circuit with your own car during a Pistenclub Trackday Spa-Francorchamps.
