F1 Belgium Grand Prix

Something always happens at Francorchamps, and the Formula 1 race is the high point of the season on the Spa track on the 5th to 7th of September.

The vast circus organised by Bernie Ecclestone literally invades the place and one-seater cars climb the Raidillon at full throttle, reaching speeds of over 300 km/hour before hitting the brakes at Combes corner.

Then get around the track's evocatively-named corners, such as: Malmedy, Bruxelles, Pouhon, Fagnes, Stavelot and Blanchimont. Take the straight in front of the pit lane once more via the newly improved Bus stop, end with the ""la Source"" hairpin, before attacking the Raidillon once again.
