The circuit has recently undergone various changes as conform with modern F1 GP standards, as a result the track design at the Bus Stop through to La Source has changed. The 1st image is the new track design.
Fantastic enjoyable circuit. Testicular fortitude required to do Blanchimont flat. Rather U than me.

Only been once so far in the 3.2 Club Sport.
Eau Rouge is very intimdating at first, but not as difficult as Rivage to get right. Pouhon is fabulous. Blanchimont flat out - well it was in the Clubbie, but in a more powerfull car it must be pretty scarey.
Ah yes, you gotta love Spa... probably the finest race circuit in all of Europe. That trip above was epic! It's worth noting that the video above was of the old Bus Stop (Chicane) going left-right-left: the new layout has the Bus Stop simply going uphill right-left.
Since Spa is high up in the mountains, it lives in its own microclimate where it can be raining or shining from hour to hour.
Here is another lap of Spa (old layout) last year in the PE:
Eau Rouge is the defining moment of Spa that challenges you in a way no other does. Stefan Bellof tragically died in the left hand wall through Eau Rouge, and Raidillion dares you to keep your foot in as you crest Eau Rouge. Rivage is the never ending right hander that is a test of nerve as to when you get on the power again, whilst Pouhon is my favourite double left hander that you arc in a graceful single turn with both power and speed ever increasing. Bloody marvelous. The exit of Stavelot sees you aiming for the house and although Blanchimont 1 (B1) can be taken flat, Blanchimont 2 (B2) really does take balls of steel to be taken flat... a very gentle lift before turn in and gradual power through is sufficient, but be careful to not run out of room on the exit! (ahem, Butzi! )
Spa is a circuit that tests both aero and power. Set your suspension to full stiff, and head for the hills...
