Spa Francorhcamps Six Hours Classic. A CFX blast from the past, but not without a reason. Back in 2004 a bunch of Dutch Carfreax decided to top of an exciting season and put some icing on the cake in Belgium. It was the year we crossed the channel to Goodwood. Dressed to impress with our own tees and cars in full flavor with home made ralley tags. During late summer we headed south to visit to the wonderful circuit near Spa as an one day event, waffles included.
Those were the days. Compact cameras from the early hours of digital photography, equipped with low resolution, but highly motivated Carfreax on the trigger, hungry for vrooops and vroaarrs in Flanders. A long but satisfying hike around one of the last natural circuits of the world. The legendary slopes and curves, classic cars chasing each other into the night. Up close with the action on the track and in the paddock. An experience.
And now, five years later, this historic circuit seems in danger. And yes, racing is not politically correct, but closing the Spa circuit would be a nightmare for every petrol head among us. Our memories are sweet and we want to return in 2010. If you share this feeling, please sign the petition here.
