In pole position at Stavelot Abbey

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! Above all for Ardennes-étape customers because you enjoy an exclusive offer when you show your Activity Pass: all-in entry, 15 minutes in the simulator and a gift from the shop, all for €19! What’s more, you have free entry to the Historical Museum of the Principality of Stavelot-Malmedy, the Guillaume Apollinaire Museum and the temporary exhibition.
