mosler lover should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Spa without a car?

I really want to get over to the Spa Euro Race on May 31/June 1 but... I don't drive.

How feasible is it to Eurostar over and pick up public transport to the circuit? Or are there any organised UK tours that would get me there?

I've done this, but flying to Brussels or Cologne instead of the Eurostar bit. The nearest train stations to the circuit are at Trois Ponts or Verviers (there is a station at Spa, but you have to change trains at Verviers, and the bus you catch at Spa starts at Verviers). You can get buses from either Trois Ponts or Verviers stations to Francorchamps, which stop near La Source, and near the main entrance (opposite the pits at the bottom of Eau Rouge).

I stayed in Malmedy one year and buses run from there to Francorchamps, but I think they are only every 2 hours on a Sunday - I know I had to hang around for ages after the DTM race.

The websites for the buses and trains are www.tec-wl.be and www.b-rail.be

My wife has done the Eurostar then Verviers to Spa if she can't afford the extra days off work to come with me. As you know the circuit is some way off Spa and I normally pick her up at the Spa station (the line stops there)
Its a bit of a task and if you want it to go smoothly you should have a small knowledge of the language. If it was me I would try to get in touch with someone else that is driving down. Perhaps a team, you never know!
I would also have thought that there would be an organised tour for that ?
