Why buy from us?
Widely referred to as one of the most challenging race tracks on the earth, the circuit at Spa is filled with numerous twists, hills and various dangerous sections, making this one of the most enthralling tracks to drive.
Originally measuring at 9.3 miles in the shape of a triangle, this track, like the infamous Nürburgring, has also been modified and adapted. It is now 4.28 miles, but still holds all the entertainment of the previous length.
Due to the track's location, it creates an array of different climate conditions which is what makes this track so unique. The severe weather changes means parts of the track might be wet and clouded making for harder driving conditions, whereas other parts could be dry and bright. This track really does provide a fully fledged driving experience and you’ll need to bring a well rounded set of skills to tackle it effectively.
On top of this, one particular section of the track, known as “The Eau Rouge” is a real challenge for any driver. Consisting of a race down a straight before climbing a steep hill before tackling a number of left and right turns and a blind summit for an even greater challenge, this is the part of the track that is unforgettable and will undoubtedly provide the greatest thrill.
The infamous Spa Circuit is iconic for so many reasons, and the combination of this incredible track with the amazing Renault Clio cars we have on offer really makes the experience stand out far ahead of many others.
Not only is your car taken to the event and prepared for you when you arrive - thus eliminating the stresses of a regular track day - but it all takes place in a relaxed and informal environment, so you can really enjoy the day and get to know the car and the circuit properly with less time pressure.
The expert ARDS grade B and above instructors at these events will be there to give you a warm welcome, and rest assured that they are the cream of the crop as they’ve had many years of previous race and tuition experience at venues like these. What’s more, with low car participation numbers at each event, the element of risk is minimised and allows you to explore the track at its best.
So, enough with the hesitation, petrol heads, grab your helmets and join us in putting pedal to the metal and book this experience before someone else does. Numbers are extremely limited, so secure your place before someone else does!
