    The track is fantastic, especially coupled with warm cloud-free weather. It's nicely tucked away in the hills surrounded by forest. Surroundings are unreal, especially in fall.

    Spa is long but very fluid, it's very fast. Normally they do 1x20mins, 4x25 sessions here allowing to do 8 laps or so.

    La Rouge, Double Gauche (left) are amazing corners.

    Funny I was there too... Yep, fabulous weather, stupidly fast circuit and sadly some serious injuries. In the first group, first session of the first day, a guy went down at Blanchimont and is in intensive care. Chatting to the circuit director over a beer, on the circuit cameras it looked like mechanical wheel failure. It’s hard to tell by what’s left of the bike but the rear carbon wheel had no spokes. I was shocked when he said that they call the air ambulance every week to bike trackdays. It’s an amazing complex and they want MotoGP and WSB there inside 5 years. They're making huge changes to comply.

    I nearly ended up in hospital the second afternoon, when coming out of the fast right hander before Blanchimont, something come off the bike in front and suddenly I was immersed in an explosion of chaos and confusion. Lock to lock, then incredible vibration... the object had blown out my rear tyre instantly. Took till Blanchimont to stop. The marshal came running over with a big smile and a thumbs up and offered me a cigarette and lighter. I seems to have impressed him. You have to love the French (well French Belgiums). Top few days though.... Certainly worth going. Buck list along with Mugello, Monza ,Imola and Portimao.

    We may have shared a garage? 22? I may have helped you with your rear stand a couple of times? J
