You’ve already heard of the Spa-Francorchamps racetrack, a legendary track that is famous beyond our borders and is every car racing lover’s dream. But did you know that Stavelot Abbey hides a museum dedicated to the ‘most beautiful track in the world’ at the heart of its vaulted cellars?
It’s a fascinating place that brings together a whole host of info and videos: photographs, information boards and above all a presentation - which is constantly updated - of exceptional vehicles from the greatest names in Formula 1 like Ferrari, March, Chevron, Porsche, Cooper... and stories from motorbike and car endurance racing. All these pieces of history will give you a fresh look at this famous racetrack, nestled in a green setting between Stavelot, Malmedy and Spa. The visit is captivating, whether you're an avid fan or just curious. A large model, as well as PlayStation 4 consoles will help you build an accurate image of its course, chicanes, etc.
And how about discovering this legendary racetrack through an even more powerful sensory experience? Climb aboard a driving simulator and get behind the wheel for heightened sensations with the 3 Full HD screens, coupled with the game Asseto Corsa. Its vibrating pedal, force feedback steering wheel and bucket seat built in to a frame drawn by four electric actuators will do the rest and you’ll just have to follow the vehicle’s veering and movements on this fictitious track.
It’ll blow your mind!
