The Circuit of Spa in Belgium is one of the most beautiful race tracks in the world. How can it get even more beautiful? Well that is when you see it in gorgeous slow motion. In preparation for this year’s event on the 25th of July, NISMO has presented us this fantastic collection of short clips from last year’s running.
The 24 Hours of Spa doesn’t carry quite the same level of prestige as the ’round-the-clock challenge of Le Mans as it does not host the factory-supported LMP1 endurance racers. However that should not mean the Belgian event should not be ignored. Rolling through elevation changes in the verdant forest, the circuit is one of the most beautiful places in the world to hold a race. It offers drivers, the chance to tackle corners like the famous Eau Rouge and the challenging Bus Stop.
Rather than focusing on the company’s own GT-Rs, NISMO have included the vast array of machines competing in the race, including cars from Mercedes-Benz and Audi. As the sun falls and the track is bathed in darkness, eventually all you can discern are headlights and sparks erupting from the cars as they snake up Eau Rouge. Motorsport captured right is beautiful and we thank the editing team at NISMO for putting this together for us, all we can say now is roll on the 25th.
