|Notes||Once again, our much anticipated Belgian F1 Circuit Special makes it`s way onto our caledar! On this fantastic event, we will visit both the Formula One circuits this beautiful country has to offer, the old and the new.|
For the first time ever, we will be running these two amazing tracks back to back! We will start at Spa-Francorchamps, with a noise limit of 106 db(A) Once finished, we will all head to Circuit Zolder, where we have the unbelievably rare opportunity to run a full no-noise-limit trackday, so we can let the cars scream to the heavens! There will be a dinner on the night between the events for everyone to get together and share their experiences of day one of this brilliant event, the details on this will be issued at a later date!
The scenery setting for both tracks are very similar, wrapped in the forests, with some great undulation, but the tracks themselves are extremely different. Spa-Francorchamps will be making up day one of this unique and first time event! For those that know, Spa isn`t for the faint-hearted! Arguably the best track in the world, this is an absolute favourite for everyone who joins. With some of the quickest corners on the global motorsport scene, it makes for one of the most exhilarating experiences possible in a car. And of course, it includes the infamous Eau Rouge!!!
Day two you will take on Circuit Zolder, with its fast flowing first section and a very precise technical finish, it’s a serious challenge and requires a lot of thinking to string the perfect lap together, resulting in a huge rush when you connect the corners in one flowing sequence. Every year, they hold the 24 hours of Zolder, it’s still claimed by most drivers as one of the hardest 24-hour races on the calendar!
This is the first time a back-to-back event at these circuits has ever been done, so we look forward to seeing you there and joining us in trackday history. It is going to be amazing!
Please see below information on the event, including accommodation details. We have negotiated deals at two excellent hotels at greatly reduced prices, to keep everyone staying in the same place, so you can all share your bigger, better stories at the bar, in the company of other car nuts!

For those coming to Zolder on the evening after the Spa-Francorchamps day, we have secured trailer parking for you at the circuit. The gates to the track will be open from 18:00 until 20:30 and we will have the keys to the garages, so you can unload equipment that evening. Garages at Zolder are different to Spa, as they must be accessed via the pit lane to load the car. There are stairs around the back to access the rear of the garages, and a lot of room in the paddock. If you require to unload a sizeable amount of equipment, I urge you to do this the evening before the Zolder live day.

Please note trailers WILL NOT fit in here and MUST go to the circuit, which is only 10km away.
