Belgian Grand Prix 2018

  • Race Date: 24 – 26 August 2018
  • Venue: Circuit de Spa Francorchamps

The Spa-Francorchamps track often makes for one of the most exciting races of the season as it has a reputation for rain on race-day. The track is two hours away from Brussels.

This is one of the favourite circuits of the drivers due to the variety of its layout in the hilly landscape of the Ardennes that allows drivers to put their talent in value.

Designed in 1921 by Jules de Their and Henri Langlois Van Ophem, the original circuit of 14.981 km has roughly the shape of a triangle connecting Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot and using public roads.

Over time, the speeds reached by cars make the circuit more and more dangerous for the safety of competitors. So Jackie Stewart became an implacable adversary of the circuit since his accident at Masta in 1966. Dan Gurney used to say of this circuit that “not a circuit for little boys.”

The circuit currently used has been modified several times and is now a permanent circuit of 7.004 meters. This is still a very fast and hilly circuit, taking over part of the old route, which has characteristics valued by the world’s greatest drivers of different categories and where the cars can still exceed 320 km/h.

Spa-Francorchamps is also famous for its unpredictable weather. Periodically, the circuit is set differently according the sectors, dry places while other parts are wet and slippery.

DID YOU KNOW?

The most famous part of the circuit is the Raidillon of l’ Eau Rouge where drivers challenge is to negotiate this hill flat out. Jacques Villeneuve has often proclaimed loudly that he dared to cross the Raidillon flat out.

He proved in 1996 by signing the pole position but he crashed very violently off the track at this location in 1998 and 1999. Five years earlier, Alex Zanardi had also suffered a big accident in this area and had had to stop racing for several weeks.
