Name: Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps
Where: Stavelot, Belgium
When: 2015, 2016
Why: Spa 24 hour
Who: RACB – Royal Automobile Club of Belgium
Notes: Spa-Francorchamps is one of my most favorite facilities to marshal and Spa 24 hour is similarly one of my most favorite events in the world. Similarly to Nurburgring, Spa offers a great track with many elevation changes, challenging corners, and famous landmarks. Besides the on track activities, two pit lanes with garages worth visiting to check on exotic GT3 machinery for the event, there are also Frituria trucks throughout that sell fresh fried potato – french fries. The track is just outside of Liege in Wallonia which is an awesome region to visit. And before the start of the race there is a parade of race cars to the center of Stavelot for all the people to see and enjoy. Instead of going to the race track the locals have race cars come to them. Brilliant place, and I love it!
