Belgium Spa  11th March 1972

Belgium Spa 11th March 1972
Made by loose_grip_99
The famous Spa racetrack in the Spring sunlight in 1972. We were passing through from Liege (where we had finally been able to change money at the station before passing out due to lack of food caused by lack of belgian money to buy it) to Luxembourg in my Minivan. I passed by the same place last week intending to take a Then & Now shot but they were building a new stand. It was a building site with diggers & scrapers that had deposited about 6 inches of mud over everything. I declined to get out of my car the wimp that I am.

It also makes a nice viewing spot for spectators.
