  1. Those are beautiful. Not only is it the best track on the calendar, it’s also easily one of the best looking.

  2. I find it strange that they haven’t given the corner prior to Pouhon spectator access on the inside of the corner.

    Why no pictures of the Lotuses??

    1. there’s one near the end

  4. The spectacle of Grand Prix racing at a venue proven to be not only the drivers favorite but is acknowledged by fans and critics as the best place to see this generation of race machine where it has the opportunity to breath and get out there and run with a head of steam. The pictures reflect the uniqueness of this place and really show why Spa is what it is. To see these magnificent machines run through the forests with its hills and its valleys test them as no other place can is why we the fans of Formula One are so passionette about our sport. When the demand for many more new race venues in the near future calls for thinning out the lesser tracks I hope that common sense will prevail and tracks like China, Valencia or Korea find themselves on the chopping block ever before a special place like Spa is thought of as expendable. Ripe with history, a place that tests man and machine like no other deserves in reality to remain on the schedule and has proven itself to be worthwhile and on most must see lists.

  5. The Lotus looks brilliant. I’m in a minority here but I think the red Total really helps it stand out. It’s such a clash against the black and gold, love it!
