Written by
The Spa-Francorchamps is possibly one of the most challenging circuits that exists today. The track is twisty and hilly and has lots of sharp inclines. It is a short run from the starting line to the first hairpin La Source from there drivers race down a moderate straight to the point where the race track crosses the Eau Rouge stream. Most F1 drivers will claim that its one of most challenging sections of any existing circuit. No wonder that the drivers of historic racing cars want to compete on Spa-Francorchamps. One of the opportunities to do so is the yearly event “Spa Six Hours".

Written by
During the past years the programme of this event was more or less identical. From the 44th edition of the event things are changing as explained by the chairman of the AvD (German Automobil Club), the organiser of this event. “We are going the right direction with the future of this event, a new generation of drivers is gradually replacing the older drivers and that also implies that more and more younger cars will appear on the starting grid. This will also change the average age of the visitors who will be more interested in the racing cars of the eighties.”
