There is nothing I can say about Spa that hasn’t been said already. In my opinion, if you were to ask every racing fan in the world what their favourite race circuit was, I think there’s a good chance that the Circuit De Spa-Francorchamps would come out in first place outright, let alone the top five!
Oozing magic from every corner, this place combines high-speed commitment corners with some of the most dramatic undulation found anywhere on a race track and some elegant technical sections. It’s a work of art, drizzled over the beautiful Ardennes Forest… Ahh somebody stop me or this is going to become a full essay very quickly.
If, unlike me, you can focus on the driving without getting distracted by the venue, here are some benchmark lap times to go after:
- Pro – 2:16:00
- Pro-Am – 2:19:50
- Am – 2:22:50
- My time – 2:16:90
I’m heading off to dream about the forest. I almost forgot, in this video I actually did talk about how to drive quickly around Spa, rather than just explain how much I love it… So check it out! In the meantime, let us know what you think makes Spa so special on social media.
