The new Spa

Work at Spa is progressing at speed so as to be completed in time for the Belgian Grand Prix later this year. The work includes a large amount of earth-moving to allow for the construction of a new pit building and paddock area which are more in keeping with the norms in modern Formula 1. This has meant that the old "Bus Stop" hairpin has had to be reprofiled, along with the La Source hairpin.

The work began in the middle of November 2006 and with mild winter weather is now a week ahead of schedule.
