We’d like to provide more information on camping at the Belgian Grand Prix, so if can share your own experience we’ll look to add a new page specific to camp sites around Spa.
What are the car parking arrangements?
The best way to ensure you get parking at the Belgian Grand Prix is to obtain a car park E-ticket in advance.
Buy the ticket online through the Belgian Grand Prix official website or via resellers such as BookF1.
You will receive the E-ticket to your email address.
Print the E-ticket on an A4 sized sheet and paste it on the windscreen of your car.
The bar code on the E-ticket will validate your parking at the various checkpoints at the circuit.
What is the nearest airport to Spa?
The Belgian Grand Prix takes place at Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium. The nearest city to the Belgian Grand Prix circuit is Brussels which has two airports – Brussels Zaventem (BRU) and Brussels South Charleroi (CRL). From the airport, take a train or coach to reach the circuit.
What is the nearest train station?
The nearest station is Brussels central station. If you are travelling from the UK, take the Eurostar from central London to reach Brussels central station. Then take a train to Spa or Verviers, from there you can use the shuttle service to reach the Belgian Grand Prix circuit. Alternatively take a train to Liege, which is also well connected to the circuit by buses.
Can we take food and drinks (alcohol) into the circuit?
It’s advisable to take your own food to the venue. There aren’t too many food stalls at the Belgian Grand Prix circuit, which means that there may be long queues to buy food. And the food is quite “samey” – chips, chips, chips and probably horse meat burgers.
Officially, alcohol from outside is not permitted at the circuit and could be confiscated during the routine bag search at the entrance. But from my own experience and many others, there’s never a problem, in fact many fans take ice coolers full of beer into the circuit without an issue.
