  • Open Track Day at SPA FRANCORCHAMPS - Video!!!

    Our new member from the Netherlands, Laur3ns, who races a turbocharged Miata, posted this video of an open track day at the incredible Spa Francorchamps road course in Belgium, only a 3 hour drive from his home. Thanks Laur3ns!

    2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
    1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - my last track day car (FOR SALE or not, depending on how I feel when I fall out of bed tomorrow morning)
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

      That guy was just tearing up the track. I can't even fathom how fast a F1 car takes those turns. That front straight with the left kink heading uphill right = 5-6g+ in a F1 car I heard. lol. Awesome driving and overtaking skills. Thanks for video Richard!

              Pretty sure your neck would break at 5-6G

                It takes more then 20g to break your neck, 5g you get a neck like this ‪Fernando Alonso cracks nuts with his neck!‬‏ - YouTube

                  OK I am a little confused I thought it took 70 g to brake a neck, or is that with a HANS device on?
                  If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

                    Thanks all. Spa _is_ an awesome 4.6miles track. This video was last may when the car put out 220rwhp and no aero. Car is at 233rwhp now and I'm working on some downforce with a 949 GTC-200 (SuperMiata GTC-200 Wing) and a Home Depot Motorsports splitter out of poplar ply (light!). Very curious as to what that's gonna bring to the thrill.

                        You might be right I was just pulling 20g out of memory... It might have been some other thing that happened at 20g that I am mixing up.
