Daniel, Longers has us booked into a hotel close to Spa for our trip to Dinslaken via Spa last weekend in April. Our laps are unfortunaitly accompanied and not sure if full track laps are available that day. but worth dropping him a PM for the hotel info. Thumb

@Daniel

I'm at Spa on 18/7 with Bookatrack (and Zandvoort the following day). I always stay at Hotel de la Source these days having tried many of the other options in the area. It's not the cheapest but the rooms are great, there is free secure underground parking & it has a nice restaurant if you can't be bothered to go out.

I've done close to 3,000 laps of Spa so if you need any pointers, just ask. It's a fantastic circuit & firmly in my top 3

You're welcome to tag along on the way out if you want to - I also have a garage booked at the circuit Thumb

As Nick mentions, La Source is hotel of choice now. Spa is amazing and Nick is your man for pointers.

That would be awesome Nick Thumb

Let me know what Eurotunnel times if you fancy me trying to keep up on the way down.

Will confirm once everything is booked.

I generally get the 10:20 train so you get to France about midday. It's then a reasonable drive to arrive before 4. You can't check in before 3 so no point in going earlier.

Small party of us going over end of July, track day with Lotus on Track on 30th, then a run into Germany somewhere on the Tuesday before returning to UK on the Wednesday.

Recommend the St.Hubert hotel in Ligneuville, very pleasant quiet village about 15 mins from circuit. The owner always does us a deal including all food/beer/B&B, and he's a fantastic chef. thumbsup

I've stayed at La Source and Radisson Blu Spa, both nice places. The Radisson also has an underground car park, although the angle getting in/out may cause rubbing issues to lower cars.

hi all,

i am booked on this day - monday 30th july and have reservation Sunday and monday night at the radisson blu palace in spa, but can't go. its the weekend of the spa 24hrs race, finishing sunday afternoon, then the lotus on track day is on the monday.

did it last year and was a fantastic day. good manners on track and not overly busy. its now sold out on the LoT site, i have emailed the radisson and LoT and i can transfer both to someone, if i send them their details.

would be looking for £500 for hotel and track day fee

details:

hotel

i paid £213 for 2 nights hotel, breakfast included and £325 for the trackday, you need a suitable car (porsche is fine) and £30 for a lotus on track membership


let me know if anyone interested, would like £500 for both


thanks
