Belgian Grand Prix - August 26-27, 2017
Spa-Francorchamps is considered by many to be the finest racing circuit in the world and is a favourite of many of the F1 drivers. The kind of atmosphere you get at Spa for the Belgium Grand Prix is something akin to the old Nurburgring. It is fast and modern and possesses a huge number of really excellent viewing areas. It is one of the favourite F1 venues for drivers and fans - Eau Rouge is really one of the great corners in F1.
Spa-Francorchamps made a welcome return to the calendar in 2007 with a revised start / finish line and a wider track at the La Source hairpin. After the dramatic start, the circuit rises and falls in spectacular fashion through the wonderful forests of the Ardennes - which are also responsible for the ever changing weather.
The Belgium Grand Prix consistently provides races of constant changes and drama; the recently upgraded Spa Francorchamps invariably offers a brilliant motor-racing experience.
We have been looking after corporate clients, VIP guests and small groups for many years and our attention to detail is second to none. We know the Ardennes region superbly well and are therefore able to advise on a seemingly bewildering array of possibilities to provide you with a memorable weekend. Please call us for a bespoke quote.
Our bespoke packages offer a choice of destinations and hotels with the choice of a self drive tour using Eurotunnel or P&O Ferries or travelling by rail on the Eurostar or travel by Air.
