Spa Open Pitlane
The Spa Open Pitlane event is a very inviting, accessible and social event. No matter who your audience would be. Whether your spouse and family, or your business relations, they will without exception be positively impressed by their new environment. Take them for a spin, or yet better, book a competitive BMW 325i or BMW M3, for that matter and let them discover the mystique of Spa – Francorchamps for themselves. For prices and availability, have a look at the Test Track Day Car Hire page.
The fast straights, the twisty infield and the Raidillon Complex, starting with Eau Rouge at the bottom, really makes Spa a truly unique challenge and opportunity. Easy to understand that the Spa Open Pitlane event is a very popular event to many drivers. In 2007, the Grand Prix circuit has been shortened to a total length of 7.004km [4.352mls]. Prepare yourself at home and already have a look at the Spa Racing Line.
