When is the Belgian Grand Prix 2024?

The Belgian Grand Prix is scheduled to take place from Friday 26th July to Sunday 28th July 2024. With the limited availability of tickets, planning ahead and securing your spot is recommended to ensure an unforgettable weekend of elegance and excitement.

What is the Spa-Francorchamps famous for?

The ‘Spa’ is well-known and loved by F1 fans and enthusiasts for several reasons. With its expansive 7.004km length, the Belgian Grand Prix circuit is the longest among F1 tracks.

Its generous space allows for thrilling fast corners and ample opportunities for overtaking. Notably, the circuit is known for its famously unpredictable weather conditions, set against the breathtaking backdrop of the picturesque Ardennes forest.

While the unstable weather conditions contribute to the fun and festive feel of the weekend, it’s important to set up the right plans to enjoy the races in style and comfort. Read on to learn more about the best seats available, the hospitality packages Seat Unique offers, and which might be best for you.

How do you get to Spa-Francorchamps from the UK?

The Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is in the Ardennes region in eastern Belgium, and fans travelling from the UK have several travel options to reach the rural track.

Getting to Belgium from the UK is relatively straightforward. You can either fly into Brussels Airport or Liège Airport or take the Eurostar from London to Brussels.

Once in Belgium, you could rent a car for the weekend, stay local, and drive to the track and park in the designated yellow, green, red or blue parking areas, for which you need a parking ticket.

Alternatively, a more traffic-friendly option is to stay in cities or towns in the surrounding territory and use the direct shuttle buses, and public transport buses that leave every morning of the races and return every evening.

Where is the best place to sit at the Belgian F1 Grand Prix?

From the Eau Rouge-Raidillon section, offering a challenging and thrilling view of cars accelerating through a steep incline, to the start/finish line grandstands providing a fantastic perspective of the race start and pit activity, there are various prime seating locations at the Belgian Grand Prix to immerse yourself in the action.

As usual with Formula 1 races, there’s the option of general admission tickets. They are a great option for watching the Belgian Grand Prix on a budget, and often have amazing views of the track, but are not the most comfortable option by a long way. This is because the track consists mostly of grassy banks meaning there will be a lengthy walk to find your viewing spot.

Another great option to watch the races from is the Grandstands. Seat Unique offers a varied selection of these premium tickets, each providing excellent views of the exciting twists and turns of the circuit, perfect for a memorable F1 experience.

Have a look at the grandstand options below:

Les Combes

Les Combes grandstand offers an excellent seating location near the exit of the Combes chicane. As one of the most affordable options at Spa, it is an uncovered grandstand that provides a great view of the track.
