2019 WEC Spa francorchamps 6 hrs

Dear 10tenthers,

At the risk of starting a double thread: We'll be visting the Spa round of the WEC again. It'll my 22nd consecutive visit for this race and I thought to connect a few of us fellow Tenthers to maybe meet up, whilst being at this lovely event.

By the way, does anybody have any news regarding the tear down and rebuilding of the old grandstands, at the bottom of Eau Rouge?

Yes I was there last weekend for the Creventic run 12 Hour race and I can inform you that the area has been transformed into a track for the upcoming World Rallycross event complete with huge grandstand!

So still a building site! From that pic there seems to be no viewing at all where there used to be a long row of low grandstands at the bottom of Eau Rouge. I hope work is more advanced than it looks because having that whole area closed to spectators for the WEC race would be terrible.

Iíll be there for the Peter Auto event too! Iím worried about losing the iconic shot of cars going up Eau Rouge which used to come from the stands and food court area in what is now a building site. The coverage from the 4+8hr event last weekend seemed to show something similar to your picture. But hopefully things will have progressed by the time WEC gets there!

Oh dear, that looks bad. I'd say that's a proper 'French stroke' job. You know, the one's taking all the time in the world and only being finished when they think it's good and ready. Probably will be a mess all the way to the F1 race.

Agree about the view, but maybe it’s work in progress.... When not racing in the Historic Spa 6hrs, I always used that grandstand to watch from, the view up to Raidillon was great.

See you there, hopefully! (Am helping with B19 #15 in CER1 and Morgan SLR #57 in 60s...)

The weather forecast for Saturday is suggesting 50% chance of rain all day, sunny spells, fierce winds and a feels-like temperature of 1-2 degrees C.

Ah, the Ardennes.
I must admit that the weather is better for the 24 Hours GT3.

ooomph, that doesn't sound like great race spectating weather! But it is 30+ here and I"ll be watching online, so i can't complain too much!

Wonder how good of a warmup this will be for Le Mans with that weather?
