Willmaz223 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I was wondering if anyone could be able to say why for the Spa Classic spectators are not allowed in on Friday.

I find this quite bizarre and dissapointing as I was planning to go all three days.If anyone could shed some light on the matter or a solution if its the case it would be much appreciated.

According the the Spa Summer Classic website there is free admission for spectators on all three days...

Isn't Will taking about Spa Classic by Peter Auto, here?

If yes, it surely is a matter of insurance and people at the gates. This could increase the costs. Just my bet.
If you're looking for a solution, join a team, any team even a catering one or go the day before and hyde yourself…

Yes it is the Peter Auto event.

That was what my dad was saying.Annoyingly I don't really know anyone who goes to the Classic.

It's a shame as Friday is the best day really on my opinion and it was the main event for me this year.

Edit-Having looked at the event website it says the event is open all 3 days but my dad so its not.That tickets are only on the gate on Friday.Have to do some digging.

Tickets? Why that? People there are nature oriented, just rent fancy dresses and pretend you're Chip and Dale the well known squirrels seen in Rescue Rangers. Bear in mind that one has a brown nose the other being black. Last recommendation stay away from raccoons rutting, they are legions at this time of the year! L'appel de la nature…

Just a bit of extra info regarding PA events- The entrant only gets 4 passes for an event and has to buy any extra required, so not much chance of a team having spare. Not sure if the spectator access and ‘gate money’ is a circuit thing, or PA. The Spa website link takes you to PA if you try to buy a ticket, but direct to ticketmaster for parking and camping..... Anyway, there will be insurance savings for the organiser if spectators not there, and it’s the same for teams getting in. Last year we were not allowed in on Wednesday as security and insurance weren’t booked and paid for until Thursday!

Will, PA website links to adv ticket purchase, including a 3 day pass, so must be ok to spectate all 3 days.
Don't forget they rip you off eur 7 a day for parking each day !

We will be there with a yellow Alfa GTAm no. 58, in the HTC race, most probably based in the enduro garages, but not sure which one at the moment.

Call by to say hi.

Martin is right- the ticketmaster list has a 3 day entry ticket at the bottom...

While you're there drive or better ride the old circuit which was an open road. And learn what was Burnenville, Malmedy chicane, Masta and the real Stavelot. Before that try and find some pictures of what was the Raidillon in French or the Eau Rouge in… English!
MartinH has entered in the star of the event category, HTC series, hence it is scheduled on Sunday at 3PM. Dont worry if you see some scars on the cars, the first round is planed on Sat' at 10 PM… La nuit à Spa, tous les coups sont permis!
