Spa-Francorchamps and Nivelles-Baulers in 2003
From now on I will post here every Friday a new blog. If you subscribe to the RSS feed you don’t have to miss any posting.
We kick off with a piece of pure nostalgia. Short after I started the MSN Group Circuits of the past, on 16 September 2003, I visited Spa-Francorchamps and Nivelles-Baulers to take some new pictures for the site. On 3 October I wrote a report about these visits.
It was Friday the fourth of July 2008 when I drove with a brand new rented VW Polo and with mixed feelings from Barcelona to the former Autòdrom Sitges Terramar. This could be a great day or a big disappointment! This classic high banked oval was in 1923 the site of the Grand Prix of Spain, but today an abandoned circuit where visitors are not wanted...
When I think about Hockenheim, I think about long straights through the woods. I think about impressive top speeds over 220 Mph. I think about the fights on the straights, and sometimes beside the straights like Piquet and Salazar in 1982, and the hard braking for the chicanes.
