a tour of Spa-Francorchamps… by kayak?


After torrential rains, a torrent of water formed on part of the circuit. If it is impressive to see in video, it is especially annoying for the management which must now re-asphalt part of the route.

While a race was being held on the famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium, the river which flows under the bend of the Eau Rouge has risen from its bed. Downpours poured out from the Source bend, which definitely bears its name, to the foot of the Raidillon. Obviously, the current race was stopped and the rest of the events that should have taken place this weekend have been canceled.

Considerable damage for Spa-Francorchamps

All the tunnels passing under the circuit to get to the pits and stands were flooded! Frankly, when we see these images, we say to ourselves that a kayak race would probably have been more appropriate.. If this flow results in a series of impressive videos, it mainly forces the circuit management to re-asphalt part of the track!

In addition to the condition of the tarmac, it is also necessary to repair damage caused to the walls and clear all mud residues. Which will surely not be an easy task!

Since then, water has flowed under the bridges

Today, everything is back to normal and the sun is back on Spa. After just a few days and probably some hard work, the circuit is once again ready to host car competitions !

Hoping that this kind of incident does not happen again during the Formula 1 Grand Prix on August 29th.
