If you are a fan of the Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix and more particular, the Spa Francorchamps Circuit, then you’ll be happy to know that it has signed a new deal through the 2025 season.
Formula 1 said:
Spa has “undergone significant development of its infrastructure in recent years, which includes a 10,000-capacity increase at the circuit through the addition of two new grandstands, as well as offering a wider variety of entertainment for fans across the weekend including the addition of live music concerts.”
The increase in capacity saw a 20,000 attendance increase from the previous year with a total of 38,000 over the weekend in 2023. That’s great new for the organizers. F1’s CEO, Stefano Domenicali, said:
“Spa is synonymous with F1 having been one of the circuits in our first ever season and is much-loved by fans and drivers alike,” Domenicali said. “So I am delighted to extend our relationship with them until 2025.
“The promoter has taken big strides in the last few years to improve the fan experience and infrastructure, and work is ongoing between all the stakeholders with a clear focus on delivering safe and exciting racing.
“I would like to thank the promoter and the Government of Wallonia for their continued support.”
I agree, it is an iconic circuit and one, like Silverstone, Japan, Canada, Monza and Monaco, are part of F1’s DNA. It would be criminal not to race in Belgium.
