The Belgian Grand Prix
Event: Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix
When: 26th – 28th August 2016
Where: Circuit de Spa Francorchamps, GPS coordinates: latitude : 50.4542686 – longitude : 5.9523621
With the end of Formula 1’s summer break, the next stop on the calendar is the Belgium Grand Prix. The historic race is one of the most popular on the calendar, with the Spa-Francorchamps circuit being a favourite for both drivers and fans alike due to its incredible circuit, history and scenic setting. It’s also a track that’s known for its unpredictable weather with drivers quite often having to deal with dry, clear conditions on one part of the track, only to face wet and inclement weather on another stretch.
With over 70 races having been held at the course dating back to 1925, the course itself is set in the forests of Francorchamps, a normally quiet part of Belgium that bursts into life over the Formula 1 weekend. It really is one of the must see races on the Formula 1 calendar, where fans can enjoy both the high speed action of corners such as Eau Rouge, Raidillon and Blanchimont along with the low speed skill required to successfully navigate the slower corners such as Les Combes, Malmedy and La Source as well as the famous Bus Stop chicane before the start/finish line.
Rent an American Motorhome or RV for the Belgian Grand Prix
Don’t fancy fighting your way in and out of the venue the entire weekend to get to your hotel? Prefer having your own shower and toilet and not worrying about the rain?? Then why not do it in comfort and style in one of our RVs.
Every year our team takes a whole fleet of American motorhome vehicles to the Circuit de Spa Francorchamps for the Belgian Grand Prix.
Rather than self drive, all you need to do is arrive at the Circuit where your vehicle will be ready and waiting – fridge and cupboards stocked if you prefer and services all connected. It really is a fantastic and hassle-free alternative to traditional guesthouses or campsites that are away from the track.
We offer an all-inclusive service, providing 24-hour support throughout your stay. Our units come outfitted with bed linen, towels, kitchen equipment, TV/DVD systems, and all you need for a weekend living the high life in the Francorchamps countryside. We can stock your cupboards on request and offer all customers a complimentary welcome package, including tea, coffee, sugar, milk and other essentials.
Sleeping between 2 and 10 people, our American Motorhome and Winnebago vehicles really do allow you to live life like your F1 heroes and are all yours throughout the duration of your stay (arrival and departure times are flexible to suit your timetable).
Our service includes:
- Delivery and collection
- Luxurious, secure, fully furnished accommodation
- Heating and air conditioning
- Toilet and hot shower
- Parking space included
- Fully prepared Winnebago hire – including bedding, cutlery and crockery and all service and site fees
- Shopping service (cupboards and fridge stocked prior to your arrival)
- Satellite TV, DVD, music player
- 24hr support from our team on-site
It really is the most amazing way to see the historic Belgian GP – all the comfort and convenience of a hotel, but right in the action.

Where else to stay
If you feel like camping, there is a camp site nearby on Rue du Tiege. It’s in a peaceful setting and includes amenities such as toilets and hot showers, a licensed bar, spacious pitches for your own tent, as well as a range of pre-erected tents. There’s also a good selection of entertainment over the weekend with appearances from Eddie Jordan and his band the Robbers as well as Martin Brundle hosting a live F1 Q&A session.
Hotels & Guest Houses
There are some accommodation options in the town of Spa, close to the circuit but these obviously get booked up quickly so you might have to look further afield. A useful place to start is on the Spa Francorchamps website which lists the nearby towns and provides the various accommodation options for each.
How to Get There
Brussels International Airport (110 kms) or Cologne Airport in Germany (90 kms), are both a similar distance from the Spa Francorchamps Circuit. The closest airport is in Maastricht (70km), however it is harder to get direct flights here.
For a detailed breakdown of directions to the Circuit from major cities (Brussels, Paris, London) as well all the contact information you might need including site maps, the Circuit itself has put together a very comprehensive guide. You can access the circuit via the E42 or E25 – the best way will depend on your tickets and entrance gate.
The best option is to take a train into Spa or Verviers and then transfer to the circuit either in one of the regular shuttle buses or by taxi. Trains run from most major cities around Belgium such as Liege, Charleroi and Brussels to Verviers Station and then the shuttle buses will drop at the La Source entrance to the circuit.
Because of the road restrictions around the circuit during race weekend, taxis may not be able to get you right up to your required entrance. The main taxi point for drop-offs and pick-ups is at the Racing Hotel in the centre of Francorchamps which is only about 700m from the La Source entrance to the circuit. It’s also best to arrange your pickup in advance as demand is usually high and you can avoid long waits if you book ahead.
If you’re lucky enough to have the option to avoid the crowds on the roads there is a Helicopter company – Evenementciel – that offers shuttle services between the circuit and Maastricht, Bruxelles, Liège, Cologne, Paris and Charleroi Airports.
Food & Drink
As with most other circuits, you’ll easily find options to purchase food and drink, typically from mobile catering vans, albeit generally at higher prices. You do have the option of bringing your own refreshments, but if you are going to take alcohol, be sure to avoid bringing glass bottles. If you want to find out some of the restaurants in the area, this interactive map provides you a list of those in the towns nearby.
