RETRO-FACT  Spa-Francorchamps, originally a 15km triangular circuit connecting Francorchamps with Stavelot and Malmedy, lies deep in the Ardenne, close to the German border and just 100km from the Nurburgring. The first Spa 24 Hour sports car race ran in 1924 and the first Belgium Formula One GP in 1950. Both types of racing continue today, whilst their history is celebrated each year by way of the Spa Six Hours weekend every September.
