Regularly voted as tops by the drivers of the world, the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps is part of the legendary motorsport tracks in the same way as Le Mans, Indianapolis or Monaco.
A regular theatre since 1985 of the F1 Grand Prix of Belgium, this legendary track, a little more than 7 km, the longest in the world championship, well deserves its official status of “the most beautiful circuit in the world”. This global label for the Spa loop is rarely disputed and must be due to its undulating profile, to its quick turns, with its famous and unique Raidillon, of course, but also to a natural and majestic setting, in the middle of forests of fir trees in which the noise of the engines resonate. A real jewel constantly adapted to the very latest in FIA safety standards with an infrastructure as well maintained as the legend. A monument of Belgian history as well known throughout the world as the Atomium or the Grand Place of Brussels.
From Juan-Manuel Fangio to Alberto Ascari in passing by Jack Brabham, Bruce McLaren, Jim Clark, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, without forgetting Henri Pescarolo (with a record lap on the old track of an average 262 km/hr!), Fernando Alonso, Tom Kristensen, André Lotterer, Jacky Ickx, Thierry Boutsen, Stoffel Vandoorne or more recently Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton, the majority of the greatest names of international motorsport international have triumphed here at one time or another.
Become permanent in its current format a few years ago now, Spa-Francorchamps is today a real hub of tourist attractions and sporting events which welcomes the F1 Grand Prix of Belgium, a round of the World Endurance Championship, the 24 Hours of Spa, but also all kinds of activities, national races and foreign championships, trials, track introductions, visits and incentives on a circuit which is operating 220 days each year.
