I stayed at the camping near Les Combs in 2009 and on the Saturday we went in the car down to Stavelot. Nice little town, fairly quiet with a few nice restaurants. I was actually surprised that there wasn’t more happening. I suspect a lot of well-at-heel fans stay there. Wasn’t a long drive (although that is from the other side of the circuit).
Thanks for the reply. We don’t arrive until Mid morning Friday – all got work/family commitments. Bar and entertainment on site sounds good, and it will be a big relief to members of the group that there are minibuses to the circuit and into Stavelot.
So as we have GA tickets, what is best place to watch from? I was thinking to head over towards Eau Rouge on Saturday, then try and get a spot at bus stop for the race??
We sat at the Bus Stop chicane but the trees prevented you from seeing anything that wasn’t directly in front of you. There is a cheeky little area in front of the chateau at the top of Eau Rouge for GA as well, but you’ll have to be in early to get that spot.
Francorchamps is good after practice / quali – but we were quite a way away – we camped at The Elephant.
Stavelot is not miles away last year we had people next to us who walked in and back again, a car is better but it can be done or use a taxi or one of the mini buses if your going to there event.
The minibuses are run by the circuit so as you walk out of campsite entrance turn left go over stream and up small hill at the top your on the amin road left for Stavelot and right for the circuit its here your find the free mini buses to the circuit and to stavelot for events in the evening, check the boards they put up for whats on.
If you see a green tent with black focus and black kia sportage outside thats us we arrive wednesday
