Had a fantastic time free entry took train then bus from Brussels to entrance
As it was time trails and not the actual event But still we was able to walk round the Pit stop and get close to the cars ect then was able to watch Drivers/Cars getting up speed to qualify from weekend event and eat in the restaurant where they all were In all we had a fantastic day for free (apart from Train)
Also there was not many of us spectators so was able to walk around freely Not suitable for young children due to noise of cars raving up and safety as they cannot run around the Pitstop area

The organisation of this event is shocking - no signposts whatsoever with few Marshall’s (which don’t speak English) to direct you to ticket collection / camping which results in endless queues and chaos. (One Marshall in particular was extremely rude and unhelpful)
By the time we had finally got our wristbands we were lucky to find a spot for our van - the place was full and people who tape off areas and reserve places for their friends - after being told a large space was ‘reserved’ for five of their friends - we parked in a another free space and were basically ganged up on by a group and bullied to leave our space because it was ‘reserved’ for their friends and was ‘their village’ To avoid further confrontation we left and stayed in a campsite half and hour away.
After travelling 1000km for this event this was extremely disappointing especially as we had hired a van to stay in for the weekend.
Management of this event need to get a grip and organise the shambolic and poor organisation of this event.

We used General Admission as we always do at Silverstone. This has massively changed since my friends last visit. You can't even exit through certain gates with Bronze admission, let alone get good views etc. You really are herded like cattle and treated like the lowest of the low. Expensive food etc which was to be expected, although instant coffee? really?
We camped at IntentsGP at Stavelot. Again, drinks and food were just as expensive and we were not permitted to cook our own food as camping stoves are banned so that you will buy from them. We did not buy from them. Went to the bar once and paid over £30 for 3 drinks, not euros, pounds! nice try! There is no such thing as customer service anymore, it is all about profiteering in any way that you can. Its taking advantage, and we allow it. Limited toilets, cold showers and Noisy neighbours were the icing on the cake. Great experience with friends but a grandstand is a must and do not camp at FC Ster with IntentsGP unless you don't mind being ripped off!

Visited with my 22 year old son and got gold 4 tickets in the Eau Rogue grandstand. Amazing views of the circuit including the final chicane and La source. The stand had food, drink, toilets. Expected queues but nothing too long.
We stayed in Verviers and got the shuttle bus from the station to the circuit over 3 days. Going was fine but the return journey is an absolute nightmare with no queuing system it was a free for all. Unfortunately if you’re elderly or weak expect to be manhandled out of your position. The police have no control, traffic leaving is a nightmare. That being said the racing and circuit is definitely an experience I recommend and I expect similar congestion at other circuits.

This was our first Grand Prix visit so slightly naive to the whole experience, we paid for general access and probably should have done some homework prior to visiting. The venue did lack information points which was quite frustrating, there were no paper maps available so we struggled knowing what was the best place(s) to stand etc. We wanted to upgrade if able to, however due to the lack of any information/hospitality points, added to the lack of Wi-Fi made it almost impossible. We met a really helpful local young man who was working there, called Arthur, he was so helpful and patient with us, helping us to upgrade via the website. Thank you Arthur. We have definitely learnt a few things for future, if we do ever go to another Grand Prix

Booked this with Leger coaches for Saturday sprint and Sunday Grand Prix. Getting there was fine until the turn off for the Green coach park where there were queues on both days, unsurprising really when 70,000 are trying to get through a village to your green parking zone alone. Saying that the police and officials were on the ball and no issue. Our parking for the coaches was a grass verge but what can you do just be vigilant when walking as it’s pandemonium with cars, bikes, people, buses etc.

We entered via Combes entry. Outside were stalls and some bars which take card and cash no issue, bag searching was light and no ‘pat downs’ and the like that you get in say football grounds or airports. Once inside you see a bit of the track and the sound of the F3 cars and you know you’ve arrived. On Saturday we did the Kemmel straight for sprint quali and eau rouge/raidillon for the race itself and in between we did the fan zone. Piece of advice 1/ forget getting a super clear view of those areas unless you planning on getting here early, like 6am early. Campers (mostly Dutch) fill this circuit early doors and plant their chairs in the best places.
2/ bring chairs, umbrella, waterproofs it’s a LONG day on your feet and on Saturday we had the full spa weather experience. One point we were on our chairs among the trees umbrella over us, full wets on shivering then after a 15 minute downpour (I’m born and raised in Wales I KNOW what a downpour is and this was torrential) and then the clouds parted and we were roasting. Mad place. 3/ spa has a coin/token system for food and drink, you pay a set amount €100/50/30 for a set amount of coins they put on a card 60/30/10 I think. They put it on a contactless card (ohhh free card you say, don’t worry I’ll get to that) you pay with this card only. No exception. The merch stands are still card and cash mercifully. Right it is true the food and drink are a rip off! I had a can 500ml Heineken which was 4.2coins but converted it was about €7. Chips 4.7coins or €7.5 (they were just over a handful at best.) Coke 330ml 2.7coins or €4.30 you get the idea. Take your own food if you can, food and drink is fine to take into the circuit as long as it’s non alcoholic and no glass. Once the weekend is done if you have left over ‘coins’ you can refund them online but there’s a €1.50 admin charge (so long free card.)

The fanzone was decent, plenty of Dutch inspired dance music (you like Tiesto? It’s that vibe not that tiesto was there he wasn’t). Next point is the walking. Spa is big and long and hilly. Wear good walking shoes for your sake and the sake of your feet. eau rouge/raidillon are a climb and yes it’s paved but there’s so many people you can’t possible just stay on the path unless you’re in no rush. In saying that bus driver said we had to be back on the bus at 7pm and because there was a delay to the sprint because of another downpour we had to make our way back to the bus as the sprint ended. We saw the last lap at Combes then went straight out.

Sunday we decided to go to on the straight from Bruxelles to pouhon. Better views generally though through a fence and being more centrally on the circuit it was louder (those Porsches make a right sound). Again down to pouhon was steep, dare I say more so than eau rouge. From around there you can see more of the start finish straight in the distance. We moved to Bruxelles corner before the end and we’re quite close to the cars which was fun also we got onto the circuit after the race and took a few photos.

All in all it was a great weekend, busy, early starts, long days and a tad pricey (especially the food and drink) but was one very successfully ticked off the list. I’m off to convince the other half to go to Monza, wish me luck!!

The mismanagement of the parking situation at the Spa Francochamps F1 track, and the entering/leaving chaos that ensues as a result, is an utter disgrace. Hours sitting in a car just to get into the parking areas is the norm, but then the unmitigated chaos as every car tries to leave at the same time at the end of the day's racing is just ridiculous. Why on earth are there no traffic marshals?? Why are all the cars channelled through a few backroads, without any system to regulate that in place?? This is mismanagement on an epic scale, and is one of the reasons I would NEVER attend the Belgian Grand Prix again. And frankly, if you want to keep your race on the racing calendar, Spa Francochamps, you need to MAJORLY review how you treat the thousands of people, like my family, who invested in flights to Belgium, booked accommodation locally, and then sat in a car for up to three hours just trying to enter and leave the track - infuriating and totally avoidable with some joined up thinking and some MARSHALS controlling access to the main roads! It's not rocket science folks.
Tip:Unless you are on a bicycle, or can stay at an adjacent campsite to the track, Spa Francochamps racetrack is NOT car friendly.

I agree with the two main points raised by fellow reviwers:
1) It is probably the most naturally beautiful circuit in the whole calendar, only nearly matched by Montreal and the former Rio de Janeiro GP site.
2) Don't bring your car all way to the circuit. After the long walk to the parking sites after a F1 race, it will take you 2 hrs to get even close to driving out of the parking area.
I watched the race on site for the first time from the former Golden Eau Rouge stand, and it was simply amazing. Have also watched from the Golden stand by the chicane, and it is far less entertaining, except for the easy access to the track and after race celebration (and of course, great pics). Considering the new Golden 3 ER built in 2022 is both taller and placed closer to the top swing, the view is now even better (I have one spare tkt for 2023, should anyone be interested).
Another minus I observed is that some of the stands' marshalls are very young locals, not always fully efficient in keeping the order (like getting people occupying seats/places not assigned to them to leave). Some basic French vocabulary (and/or spotting one of their supervisors to flag any problems) usually helps.
