Yes, it should be spoken sound like the commentators in Brazil announcing the big GOAL.
Television video makes this track almost flat. A gently up and down slope, driving experience.
The start finish straight is flat.
Turn through La Source on to the front straight and it is downhill like coming off the harbour bridge, all the way to Eau Rouge which is as steep as heading up college hill.
You CAN take it flat, but many don’t (which can really ruin your ability to carry the speed along Kemmel).
Nek minut,. (Video)Spa. The start and run Eau Rouge/Radillon …….Nuff said.
The downhill sections are steep and fast and wonderful. Just keep breathing.
Anyhow, a couple of guys had tangled at La Source (turn 1) and that needed a safety car, so after a pretty average rolling start, we had a pretty average safety car session and restart, from which Ollie went a long way backwards.
The restart, and then, a walk through the lap.
I got to follow and chase this FF1600 for 6 laps, yes, the same chap who chopped me up at Eau Rouge/Radillon.
When you go to a gunfight, The last lap battle …. don’t take a knife.
Not completely true of course, but it was such an anachronism.
Wheeling into the assembly area with all manner of monoposto cars up to Formula Atlantic and 2000cc F3 cars, driving a front engine Formula Junior was like taking the Flintstone car to the F1 grid. Looked as funny as hell.
Catch up with my beautiful daughter for breakfast here in Aachen then; “Head for Blighty chaps, we’re taking the Wee Warrior home”. I have an appointment with Silverstone!
