9th / 10th September - Spa Francorchamps
* 9TH SEPTEMBER IS NOW FULLY BOOKED *
We are pleased to be able to offer our customers the opportunity to drive on this world acclaimed circuit at our exclusive Aston Martin track day.
The Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is the venue of the Formula One Grand Prix and the Spa 24 Hours endurance race as well as numerous other renowned races such as the Historic 6 Hours of Spa. It is considered to be one of the most challenging race tracks in the world, mainly due to its fast, hilly and twisty nature. Spa is a favourite of many racing drivers and fans. You will discover the racing lines through some of the most famous corners of any race track in the world - Eau Rouge, Radillon, Blanchimont and Bus Stop are etched in Formula One history.
The Circuit was opened in the 1920’s and the original triangle shaped
15km (9.3mile) course used public roads between the Belgian towns of Spa, Malmedy and Stavelot through the magnificent scenery of the Ardennes. Over the years, due to safety modification, the track length
was reduced down to 14km (8.7miles).
However, the biggest change was in 1979 when the circuit was reduced to 7km (4.3miles) but still retains its fast, hilly nature including the Eau Rouge and Radillon combination.
Final changes to the circuit see a revised Bus-Stop chicane, the La Source Hairpin moved forward and additional tarmac run-off added to Les Combes. This is the circuit layout we will be using on our track day at Spa.
The circuit is located in the Ardennes region of Southern Belgium and is approximately a 4 hour drive from the Channel Tunnel at Calais following the E40 and E42.
The day starts at 8.00 with refreshments and registrations, followed by a circuit briefing. At the same time, your car will be inspected by a member of our technical support team and approved for track use.
First drive sessions will commence at 09.00. During these initial track sessions every customer will be accompanied by an Aston Martin qualified instructor. Once you have reached the required level of competency on track, your instructor will sign your Aston Martin On Track Passport and you may then drive unaccompanied or with your guest on track. Please be aware you can request to keep the instructor tuition for the remainder of the day if you wish.
