Hi All,

On the cusp of booking Spa for mid October - anyone else interested?

Thanks

Do it. Spa is the best track in the world. I’ve done it multiple times in lotus Elise and motorbikes and it’s just out of this world. October weather can be dubious, it could be sunny or it could snow, and some occasions, it can be both at each end of the circuit at the same time :D

What dates you got? Im at Ring on 13th, if its a couple of days after that I might hit it on way home :)

Ive probably done 5 October days at Spa and dare I say it weve only had two wet mornings, the track dries very quickly once it stops raining. Theres also loads of runoff nearly everywhere, its definitely the best non Nur circuit Ive driven :)

Yes, was a year ago now though (in case you thought it was this year).
Absolutely brilliant weekend. Perfect weather, great company, great local hotel and steak house. And what a track. ...
