    http://twitpic.com/apblu8 a view from last year toward eau rouge, which you cant see. Paddocks in the background…gives you an idea of the distances you have to walk….it is a 7km track…thank god not the old 15 anymore ;)

    A peek at eau rouge will be hard, kemmel goes slightly up toward les combes and just after eau rouge there is a slight bend to the left, not to mention the many trees….if you feel fit enough though, you might risk going down the walkway toward eau rouge by the end of the race, track should be opened for fans once the flag has dropped and you can do eau rouge yourself on foot , or cruches for that matter. You’ll never make it to the podium on time so this might make up for it, it is a once in so many time experience right? It is a long and steep walk though…just so you know. In the old days you were able to do this bend with your own car, mighty….it was still used as a public road than. Now there is a new road dor public that goes all around the north side of the track…pitty…anyhow, i’ll keep my eye out for a girl with cruches….see if you still have some of those leffe brune :)

    No idea about the fanvision but about the food and drinks, no problem, you can bring your own. On track, as usual, everything is overpriced :)

    C u on track….perhaps :)

    Was scrolling a bit through the forum and my conclusion is this…..we (I’m from belgium) are about to be invaded by the brittish empire, or at least a few of its F1 nutters :) lots of questions about transport and how to get there, where to park etc…. You should find most of the answers here http://www.spa-francorchamps.be/en/access.php?lg=en if not, there are a few links in the pdf file that redirect you to more specific sites of towns and tourist info nearby. Remember, towns are very small in the region, except for liege and everything is far in spa, nothing is close. Wear good shoes, pack light but always for rain and even if its sunny, mornings are always chilly in the ardennes. Oh, and for those who have to drive through the dutch speaking part of Belgium first, roadsigns indicating directions to LUIK is the same as LIèGE. Have a great GP. Cheers!

    Great that you can watch spa, but with a bad knee….oh dear… Easiest way for you should be to park in the green areas. Not so crowded as it is a bit further away from the grandstands. Take the entry at les combes. If i was you, i would take a seat on top of kemmel, it is the long straight after eau rouge…but there is a catch. As it is a long straight, and with drs, it will probably be the most popular spot of most ga ticket holders…so set your alarm clock for ‘very early- ish’. Dont forget to take a seat an position yourself on top. Kemmel is very steep (and slippery when it rains) so you should be able to overlook the people in front of you as they are emediately underneath you. There is a giant screen halfway kemmel and for the ladies, toilets are next to the walkway behind you. Good luck and enjoy spa. Oh, and don’t wear high heels :)
