TRACKDAYS AT SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS

Drive one of the most spectacular tracks in the world; Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps on a trackday. Trackdays allow you to drive on track in a closed track event, where prior registration is normally required, and the number of spaces can vary for the maximum number of entries on track. A trackday entry fee is paid to enter your car and the first driver of the car.

On these days you can bring your own car, or hire one of our specially prepared track cars to use on the circuit. Also included with your entry with RSRSpa is technical assistance and advice on set up and ideal lines, and optional hire of RaceNavigator Video and Data Systems. Our professional instruction is available to you regardless of whether you choose to bring your own car or rent one of ours.
