On June 17 we were again at Circuit Spa Francorchamps. This time the mountain track was very sunny all day, like heaven on Earth. On track we saw many nice cars. Here the report with photos by Lisa Linke.
The old pitlane is one of the historic motorsport icons. It was the scenery of many startpictures of Formula 1 or 24 Hour races. This time the place was only for the Skylimit customers.
The top of the Raidillon is exiting evey lap again. The driver feels his car getting light and has to change direction at a blind spot. The downforce of the Radical RXC will help the driver to feel comfortable.
The downhill section towards Eau Rouge is a challenge every lap again. For a driver it is important to focus on the line at the bottom of Eau Rouge and not look at the top of the hill.
Nowadays the track is very wide on the top of the Raidillon. Back in the days there was no room for mistake.
After the Raidillon we have the Kemmel straight. It is a long full throttle part with a little left kink. The power of the cars is very important here
The first real braking zone after La Source is Les Combes.
A Ford Focus RS storms down the hill towards the double left corner of Pouhon.
A 991 Cup Porsche and a 996 of Phil Bastiaans drive towards the Bruxelles hairpin.
Les Combes is a typical corner where you have to take it easy in the middle part to get a good exit.
The final chicane of the track is very tight. You always have to tale it easy here or you lose time on the frontstraight
A RSR Clio drives towards Stavelot
A nice Ford Mustang driving through La Source hairpin
