Five reasons to book a ticket to the Belgian F1 Grand Prix
They don’t make tracks like this anymore. From the iconic Eau Rouge and Radillon, to the chaotic La Source, this track has it all. Every year, Formula 1 drivers come to the Belgian Grand Prix to push their machines to the limit. It’s what makes Spa one of the great venues for a F1 race.
The weather can catch the drivers out at Spa, as this tricky track becomes a slippery circuit. Be sure to pack a poncho, but don’t hide for the rain for too long. If there’s water on the track, it will lead to some unmissable action.
Perfect for road trippers
Turn your Grand Prix weekend into a week of discovering Belgium. Within less than three hours of leaving Folkstone, you could be in Bruges kicking off a trip that takes in Ghent, Antwerp, Brussels, and Leuven – the home of Stella Artois – before reaching the race. An epic way to experience the country.

Camping and glamping at the Belgian F1 Grand Prix
Spa itself is quite a small town, so most racegoers elect to camp. A bunch of the world’s biggest F1 fans, in a field with nothing to do but drink and talk racing… what a shame!
Of course, for those who prefer to keep their hands clean, glamping is also available. Free WiFi, bacon sandwiches, tents you don’t have to put up yourself, this is five-star living.
