What train are you on?

I'm on the 10:20 and thinking Chimay might be a good idea.

I made it that far on my last foray into Belgium and it was good.

Maybe see you there

Hi Steve.

Sorry set off at 5:30. Shuttle 8.20 delayed to 8.50 lots and lots of cracking cars at the terminal.

Now 13:38 local and at Chimay, so same route terry used last year. That little diversion is still in the cobbled village !

Will pm my cell number.. Plan is to leave here 14:15 ish to get to hotel then track in time for the porsche 2.l cup at 7pm Thumb

Phone died so final post very late. The track club session was epic. Felt like we were in a lemans race! Huge verity of Cars from true classics like mg/Tvr/Datsun280 to Gt3Rs and Ferrari 458/488.

Must have been near 40 Cars on track and the overtaking started before the pace car peeled off at the end of the first lap. Felt a bit wacky racers to start but then settled into a groove.

Today’s formal racing was stunning with the Euro Cars a true highlight. The Silk Cut Jaguars were amazing.

Watching the porsche 2.0l cup from the car park behind tribune it looked like they were drifting raidillon. Utterly mesmerising Thumb

This was taken as the thunder clouds rolled in over Raidillon as the final race was coming to its climax. As we drove up the winding roads out of spa those clouds dumped what felt like years worth of rain and mahoosive hailstones. Captures the atmosphere of spa for me.

Thanks to Spa Classic for a great weekend and thanks to Longers for an epic trip. Monaco/Spa/Düsseldorf done!

It's not what you know Graham, but who... Did you notice that we left before the end of the final race a few minutes before the heavens opened and had just sat down in the hotel bar when news of the storm trickled through?! Laughing

Yes mate. Surprisingly your whatsapp post, combined with the biblical cloud rotation above the grandstand, made our decision to head out. Got caught in the rain a bit but then we had to negotiate with the bar manager to get a beer outside whilst they were preparing for a hurricane....”but de rain is coming in 4 minutes sir”...”best get them beers here in 3 then matey”.
