22th Spa Six Hours - Francorchamps 19-21 September 2014

 Sheltering from the heavy rainfall and thunderstorms in one of the old pit boxes during the Six hours race on Saturday-evening, the 22nd edition of the Spa Six Hours reminded me of the same race four years ago. Also in 2010 the clouds bursted open just before eight o’clock. On Sunday these reminiscings were even strengthened as the weather turned out to be the same as the Sunday four years ago.
