You don’t stop riding because you’re getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

Sadly enough closed in 1981. Now industry terrain. Some of the old track still left...

Cool!

From Wikipedia: 'Until the late 1990s the pit buildings and the circuit were left abandoned, and it was possible to drive illegal laps around the track.'

As it was such a wonder full sunny day this Sunday 1st of November I had to go and check out the next race circuit on my list:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circuit_Jules_Tacheny_Mettet

On the day there were some really 'nice' cars doing runs. Porche, Bugatti, and a few pro race cars doing laps training sharp turn with screeching tyres and burning rubber... yeah!

Hey hey, I've been at it again. Went to Circuit of Spa Francorchamps.
Was a beautiful day, did about 350km. Great, here's a picture:



Haven't figured out how to get on the track, would be fun but I doubt I'm fast enough to qualify for a trial run. Just for kicks.
