Tickets – 2024 Belgian Grand Prix at Spa Francorchamps

Your detailed guide to buying tickets and the best places to watch the action at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps for the Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix 2024.

For affordable camping pitches at Spa-Francorchamps with clean showers, parking and food and drink service (ideal for young groups, friends and nightlife enthusiasts), we recommend Easy Camping. For trackside camping pitches & pre-erected tents (ideal for race fans seeking a quieter experience who have their own caravan/campervan or tent, or those looking for an alternative to a hotel), we recommend GPtents.

The Spa-Francorchamps circuit in the picturesque Ardennes region of Belgium remains one of F1’s few remaining classic circuits. If you don’t mind braving the elements and doing a lot of walking, the Bronze (General Admission) tickets at the circuit are excellent value. There’s also a good selection of grandstands to choose from at Spa, the majority of which are located close to the start-finish straight and Eau Rouge. Due to the unpredictable weather, choosing a covered grandstand at Spa is a good idea. 

Alongside increased interest in Formula 1 in general, attendance has been rising at the Belgium Grand Prix in recent years. In 2023, 380,000 fans attended the race over three days. The organizers have added new grandstands and constructed two large new permanent grandstands at the circuit, Gold 2 and Gold 3, which both overlook the famous Eau Rouge and Raidillon corners.

Where to Buy Belgian Grand Prix Tickets?

  • We recommend buying your tickets for the 2024 Belgian Grand Prix from our trusted supplier Grand Prix Tickets (GPT). GPT is an official sales agent for the race and tickets come direct from the promoter. When purchasing more than one ticket in the same transaction, you will be sat together. We still have good availability on Bronze, Silver and Gold tickets for this year’s race at Spa, as well as Loge VIP hospitality in the Gold 3 grandstand overlooking Eau Rouge/Raidillon.
  • We also recommend Official Ticket Packages from F1 Experiences. Choose from grandstand seats or access to hospitality in the Champions Club and Formula 1 Paddock Club plus exclusive trackside activities and accommodation/transfers.

Best Tickets at the Belgian Grand Prix?

  • Budget (<€250): As long as you wear comfortable shoes and don’t mind a lot of walking, the views from the Bronze (General Admission) areas at Spa are excellent – though overcrowding can be an issue on race day. If you want a seat for the race, the Speed Corner Grandstand is only a little more expensive
  • Mid-Range (€250-800): If you want views of the pits and start/finish/podium, then choose Gold 1. Otherwise, there are good views of La Source from Gold 8. The best views of Eau Rouge/Raidillon are in the new permanent Gold 3 grandstand.
  • Hospitality (>€800): Located in the multi-level Business Tower close to Eau Rouge, Champions Club Business Tower hospitality by F1 Experiences (priced from $695 USD on Friday) is recommended for all-inclusive hospitality and great circuit views. The Formula 1 Paddock Club is situated above the pits and offers the best VIP hospitality in Belgium, with 3-day prices starting from $6,899 USD. Learn more below.

Hospitality Suites at Spa-Francorchamps

In our opinion, the best views from a hospitality suite at the Belgian Grand Prix can be found in the Champions Club Business Tower by F1 Experiences. The building is quite old, and there’s lots of stairs to climb for the best views, but what views they are. Overlooking the old pits complex with Eau Rouge in the distance, these are arguably some of the best circuit views on the entire F1 calendar! As well as all-inclusive meals and open bars, guests also take a tour of the F1 Paddock and enjoy guest appearances by F1 stars. 3-Day access to the Champions Club Business Tower is available for $3,699 USD.

Nearby, you’ll also find the Champions Club Eau Rouge by F1 Experiences. Offering the best of both worlds, you can watch the action from the Gold 5 grandstand on the inside of Eau Rouge or head inside to the hospitality suite for all-inclusive food and drink. Guest appearances and a tour of the F1 Paddock are also included. Flexible access to the Champions Club Eau Rouge is available for 1-3 days, with Friday-only prices starting at $695 USD.

Also recommended for trackside hospitality at Spa-Francorchamps is the VIP Loge at Raidillon, which is located in the recently built Gold 3 grandstand with excellent views of Eau Rouge/Raidillon. Access includes VIP shuttle,  Breakfast & Continental meal, Open Bar (8.30 am – 6.30 pm), Access to the private terrace and grandstand, VIP Car parking ticket (one parking pass for every three tickets purchased) and Access to the Support Paddock. VIP Loge access is available for 2 or 3 days, priced from 2415 EUR. Get access via our 2024 Belgian Grand Prix Ticket Shop / Learn More

The highest-end hospitality at Spa-Francorchamps is found in the Formula 1 Paddock Club above the pits, though we’d argue that the views of the track are better from both Champions Club suites mentioned above. Enjoy gourmet cuisine, premium open bars, daily pit lane walks and more. 3-Day Access is priced from $6,899. Legend Ticket Packages with a 1-day VIP Paddock Pass are also available.

Gold Grandstands

Ten grandstands are available in the most expensive Gold category at Spa-Francorchamps, all of which are located between the final Bus Stop chicane and Eau-Rouge/Raidillon. Most of the Gold grandstands are covered. Gold 1 (Pit), Gold 2 (GP2) and Gold 3 (Eau Rouge) are modern, permanent grandstands. The remainder of the Gold grandstands are temporary structures. Due to increased demand, new sections have been added to several Gold grandstands in the last few years; these are identified as “BIS”.

Gold 1 (Pit)

Gold 1 (Pit) is the main, permanent grandstand opposite the pits on the start-finish straight. A good choice for the start/finish and action in the pits. Choose another grandstand if you are after on-track action. Check availability of Gold 1 tickets

Gold 2 (GP2)

Gold 2 (GP2) is a large, elevated and newly constructed permanent grandstand situated on the straight section between La Source and Eau Rouge, with direct views of the old pits area, which is still used by the support categories on race weekend. Check availability of Gold 2 tickets

Gold 3 (Eau Rouge)

Gold 3 (Eau Rouge) is the best grandstand overlooking Eau Rouge/Raidillion, especially since it was totally rebuilt in 2022. This covered grandstand offers excellent elevated views of the famous corner plus the section of track preceding it. Note that you will need a certain level of physical fitness to get to this grandstand from La Source, as it is situated at the top of a steep hill. Recommended. Gold 3 grandstand tickets are sold out for 2024, but you can secure 2 or 3-day hospitality in the VIP Loges within Gold 3

Gold 4

Gold 4 is an uncovered Gold grandstand next to Eau Rouge. It is set back from the track at a strange angle with fairly limited views. Check out our panorama. Pay a bit more for Gold 3 instead. Gold 4 tickets are sold out for 2024.

Gold 6 (Chicane)

Gold 6 (Chicane) is a small covered grandstand on the Bus Stop chicane, close to the pit entry. It’s one of the most expensive grandstands, but you can always expect some action at this point on the circuit over the course of the weekend. Avoid seats in the front rows if possible, as views can be restricted. Purchase 3-day Gold 6 tickets from €600

Gold 7 (La Source)

Gold 7 (La Source) is located on the exit of the La Source (Turn 1) hairpin and doesn’t have views to compare with Gold 8. Better to choose one of the Eau Rouge grandstands if Gold 8 is already sold out. Please note that Gold 7 is divided into three sections: Gold 7, Gold 7 TER and Gold 7 BIS. Check availability of 3-day Gold 7 tickets

Gold 8 (La Source)

Gold 8 (La Source) is situated on the La Source (Turn 1) hairpin with views down the start-finish straight. The popularity of this grandstand is evidenced by the fact that it sells out almost one year in advance! If you get the choice in this grandstand, go for block B over block A. Gold 8 tickets are sold out for 2024.

Gold 9

Gold 9 is a smaller, temporary grandstand closer to the opening La Source hairpin on the main start-finish straight. Located in front of the ‘slower’ teams’ pits and with a distant view of La Source for the inevitable action on the first lap. Gold 9 has two sections, the newer of which is called Gold 9 BIS. Purchase 3-day Gold 9 tickets from €670 (Gold 7 BIS tickets are sold out for 2024)

Silver Grandstands

As the name suggests, Silver grandstands at Spa-Francorchamps are cheaper than the Gold grandstands. Some of the Silver grandstands offer individual bucket seats, whilst others have bleacher style seating.

Silver 1

Recently rebuilt, Silver 1 is carved into the hill overlooking the stretch of track between La Source and Eau Rouge. Seats are bleacher style with no backs. Silver 1 offers distant views of the opening La Source corner and is close to the pit exit. Silver 1 is sold out for 2024.

Fanzone Grandstand (Silver 2)

Previously known as Silver 2, the Fanzone grandstand is located closer to Eau Rouge, making it a better choice than Silver 1. An excellent mid-range choice at Spa with good access to the best food and drink stalls, merchandise and atmosphere of the F1 fanzone, right behind the grandstand. Purchase 3-day Fanzone grandstand tickets from €575

Silver 3 (Double Gauche)

A relatively new addition to the grandstand offer in Belgium, Silver 3 is situated on the inside of the popular Pouchon corner. It’s a good mid-range choice at Spa and there’s almost always some overtaking action at Pouchon. Purchase 3-day Silver 3 tickets from €420

Silver 4 (Bruxelles)

Silver 4 (Bruxelles) is located at the top of the circuit, a long way from all the others (plus a long way from the fan zone). It overlooks the slow Bruxelles corner, but there’s much better views from the General Admission area on the inside of the corner. Silver 4 has individual seats with backs (like in Gold). Go for the higher row seats so your views aren’t obscured by the catch fencing. Purchase 3-day Silver 4 tickets from €455

Silver 6

A new grandstand for 2023, Silver 6 is located next to Turn 12 (Fagnes), between Pouchon and Blanchimont. The views are not great at this section of the track, and it’s a long way from the main Fanzone. Silver 6 tickets are sold out for 2024.

Combes Grandstand

One of the most affordable uncovered grandstands at Spa-Francorchamps, the Combes grandstand is located on the outside of the corner with the same name, at the top of the circuit. The Combes grandstand is not well evelated and is set back from the circuit. Good value but there are better views at the circuit. It’s also a long way from the main Fanzone. Purchase 3-day Combes Grandstand tickets from €356

Area 17-27 (Blanchimont)

The uncovered Area 17-27 grandstand overlooks Turns 15-16 at the southeastern most point of the circuit and is restricted to fans aged 17-27. It’s a long way from the rest of the main spectator areas at Spa, but is very much self-contained and also connected with a special camping zone for young fans. Check availability of 3-day Area 17-27 tickets

Bronze (General Admission)

Spa Francorchamps has some of the best General Admission areas of any current F1 circuit, but you’ll need a certain level of physical fitness to make the most of its stunning forest location. Many of the walkways are unpaved and there’s serious hills involved, especially around Eau Rouge. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and if rain is forecast, a pair of wellies will definitely come in handy. Purchase 3-day Bronze (General Admission) tickets from 240

Eau Rouge

Arguably F1’s most famous corner, the elevation change as the cars go up the hill is much more dramatic in reality. With a large concentration of grandstands and excellent general admission views, plus the best merchandise, food and drink close by, Eau Rouge is a great base for the weekend. There’s also an underpass in the middle of the corner to take you to other parts of the circuit.

Raidillon & Kemmel Straight

Once you have negotiated the steep path up the hill from Eau Rouge, you arrive at the area known as Raidillon. If you are lucky, there’s views of the cars emerging from Eau Rouge at high speed. The general admission area is quite limited here, and you’ll need to wait you turn (or get there very early on Sunday) to catch a glimpse of the cars through the handy ‘photographer’s gaps’ in the catch fencing. Once you get to the Kemmel straight, there’s much more room to find a vantage point on the side of the hill. There’s more fans closer to the Les Combes chicane, where many famous overtakes have happened over the years. YouTube video views: Raidillon / Kemmel Straight.

Bruxelles & Ravage

This area at the top of the circuit is a great spot to watch the action. You can get really close to the cars as they take turn 10 at low-speed and it’s an excellent spot for amateur photographers. It’s a small area however and you’ll need to compete for a spot with the regulars who come every year; get there at the crack of dawn if you want to see the race from this area. The panoramic views from the top of the hill at turn 11 down to Pouchon are also not to be missed. Check out our video of the Bruxelles view.


This is arguably the most popular general admission area at the circuit, though the addition of new grandstands in recent years have reduced the space available. Nevertheless, there’s still plenty of room on the hillside for several thousand fans to watch the cars approach the tricky Pouchon corner. The food and drink stalls at Pouchon are extensive, and the atmosphere is great. You can walk back to Eau Rouge via a flat, direct forest path in around 15-20 minutes.

Blanchimont & Bus Stop

The Bus Stop chicane is another decent general admission vantage point, but there’s limited space to get great views, unless you fancy climbing a steep embankment. The views are also partially blocked by the Gold 6 covered grandstand. There are no grandstands on the high speed Blanchimont section of the circuit, and the views in general admission are limited to those from the path, which eventually leads below the circuit and emerges near the Les Fagnes area of the circuit, close to Pouchon. The 17-27 area for young fans is located here, but there’s limited track views for everyone else.

  1. Christine Denise

    We are planning a trip to spa and monza. Our children are coming with us and they’re going to be 2 1/2 and 1 by that time. Are they allowed to go? Do we need to get tickets for them? I know they’re not necessarily going to watch but our hotel isn’t that far and my husband will most likely watch the races. Thanks for your input!

    1. Hi Elli! We mention the pitlane walk in our Trackside section. This normally takes place on Thursday from 16:00-18:00. You can enter via La Source. Don’t forget you also need a 3-day ticket to take part. We did it last year, which you can read about here.

  2. I will be attending the 2017 Belgian GP and plan to buy tickets in one of the Gold grandstands. I’ve gone through the ticket buying process up to the point of making payment and I don’t see anywhere to choose which seats you would like to buy. Are seats in the grandstands reserved, or is it first come first served?

    1. Hi Brian, seats are reserved in the grandstands, but you cannot normally choose your exact seat in the grandstand (depends on the race and where you buy your tickets from). With our supplier Gootickets, you can make a request when booking for a particular seat/section, which they will try and accommodate based on their ticket allocation.

  3. Hi, thanks for the great article. You said that “there is no ‘Free Friday’ roaming option at Spa. As I am planning to buy a cheap Bronze ticket, I have noted that there are some public walk ways behind the gold grandstands at the start/finish area. Is it possible to catch a glimpse on the track / on la source from there? Or are there some fences / walls etc. to prevent this? Thanks in advance. Best regards, Christian

    1. There is no Free Friday, so you can’t sit in the grandstands. But you can still go through all the Bronze (General Admission) areas. Some areas are restricted to Gold ticket holders only (including the area near the start-finish), but you can get some limited views of La Source on the way down to Eau Rouge. There is also an underpass from Eau Rouge to the inside of the track from where you can walk around to the final Bus Stop chicane (via the support race paddock) and down to Blanchimont.

  4. John Hickinbottom

    hi I have tickets for Spa F1 2017 and wondered if you can you tell me how to get to the disabled car park at Spa please and also how long does it take to get away from Spa at the end of the race please

    1. Hello John, the disabled podium is situated next to the Gold 7 grandstand on the outside of the first corner, La Source. The disabled parking area is located just behind the grandstand. I suggest you are patient when leaving the circuit at the end of the race. Stay around and soak up the atmosphere! Otherwise, you will be stuck in traffic for probably 2-3 hours leaving the circuit. The roads are narrow and there’s lots of cars!

  5. Hello Andrew, first time at spa this year and I have 2 adult gold 7 tickets. Now I’m regretting not getting my 6 year old son a ticket. Could I buy him a general admission ticket for the Friday only and use my gold tickets for us both to experience the Friday itenary in the general admission areas?

    Which spot would you recommend, taking a young child into consideration?

    I am thinking of booking parking near gold 7.

    Thanks for your help


    1. Hi Sean, good idea! Yes, you can do this. Friday tickets for children aged 6-15 cost 20 EUR. You can probably just buy this at the gate on the day. Your best bet is to buy a Yellow parking ticket, as it’s not too far from the La Source entry where your grandstand is located. As to best areas, it depends on how far you want to walk. But definitely worth checking out Eau Rouge/Radillion and Pouchon is not to far as well if you take the short cut through the inside of the circuit. Enjoy

  6. Hi,

    I have found this guide very useful but I would like some extra help if possible. I am getting the bus from verviers (Number 294?) to the circuit and would ideally like to be around the pouhon corner, is it clear which entrance to use? Or is it all in one? Basically as my girlfriend is pregnant we need to be close to toilets / food places! An help and advice for a first time attendee would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Louis, the 294 bus will drop you close to the La Source entry to the circuit (I’m pretty sure on this, but not 100%). From there, you have around a 15-20 minute walk to Eau Rouge, then you can go under the circuit and walk through the forest to Pouchon, another 15-20 mins. There’s plenty of food/toilet places at Eau Rouge and also at Pouchon. Good luck!

  7. Sorry also one more thing, with the free coach to the circuit does this fill up fast or will there be space for everyone?


  8. Charlie Stewart

    Hi there, I’m attending the race this year and was wondering whether bronze ticket holders are allowed access to the podium after the race or whether it’s only available to those in the gold grandstands on the start/finish straight and the bus stop

    1. Hi Charlie, anyone can attend, including Bronze ticketholders. If you want a good view of the podium, I suggest you get to the area at the end of the straight (La Source or Bus Stop chicane) as early as possible; i.e. around 10-20 laps before the end of the race.

  9. Hi, advance planning for 2018! not been to Spa before, looking at Gold 9 stand but have seen so many different suggestions for parking! What would be our best bet? Thanks.

    1. Hi Jason, the Yellow zone parking is best for all the Gold grandstands near the pit straight and Eau Rouge. I estimate it’s around 20-30 minute walk from parking to grandstand.

  10. If you buy bronze tickets are you able to move to different areas during the race or do you have to pick a place and stay there. Also are there lots of toilets around the track.thanks

    1. Hi Alison, you can go anywhere you want in the Bronze (or General Admission) areas. But be aware that the best spots on race day will be reserved very early. There are toilets around the track. Some are free and some cost around €0.70.

  11. Will a 3 day grandstand ticket, either silver or gold, allow access to all general admission/bronze areas across the 3 days.

  12. Hello again :)

    My question is can you go to grandstands in the support races with bronze ticket? F2, Porsche….

    That would be so so great…

  13. Wanting to cycle to the track – I read that you cannot take bikes into the circuit – is there anywhere to lock bikes securly?

  14. Hi, anyone who has experience with the Speed Corner Grandstand at Turn 9?
    I was this year on Gold 3 and I am thinking of going 2019 again.
    But as I wanna go to China, Germany and Japan, too – I am a little bit on a budget.
    General Admission is about 130€, Speed Corner about 200€.
    Does the 70€ worth it to have a Grandstand seat over the weekend?


    1. I’d say it’s worth the extra money, although I haven’t actually sat in that particular grandstand. You still get to use the General admission areas, so it’s a win win situation for race day when you don’t have to fight for a place to watch the race.

      1. Thanks Andrew, just the same thought as I had in my mind.
        I saw the Grandstand on Friday this year from the opposit side when I was walking around during FP1.

        Looking forward to 2019, now the schedule is confirmed and planning can start;)

  15. Hi I have purchased Silver 3 experience tickets with Where is the best place to park and where can I get the parking tickets?

    Also, do we get seat assignments at Silver 3 do you know as I cannot find the information on the site used.

    Finally (sorry for the spam) I am hoping to take my DSLR and lenses, do you have a recommendation of focal length? Saves me taking the whole kit! Ha.


    1. Hi Kirstie, for Silver 3 it’s recommended that you park in the Green parking zone (you can buy tickets here for 16 EUR per day). You will receive a specific seat number on your ticket; but you won’t know this until you actually receive your tickets a few weeks before the race. For camera, max recommended is 400mm to enter the circuit- you may not be allowed with larger.

  16. Looking to book Gold 3. Am I right in thinking seats to the front of the grandstand are best as further back the cars disappear for a bit? Which block would you try and get seats in? D?

  17. Hey Hannah!
    To be honest … I was at Gold 3 last year, Block B in Row 18 … and in the end, Gold 3 is not the best option and does not justify the high price (my opinion). The grandstand is very flat … seats in higher rows => bad view! Also the cars disapear almost when they have passed Eau Rouge … the uphill part is in most of the seats not visible!
    Of course it is great to see the cars from La Source up to Eau Rouge, but thats it!
    After the race I checked out Gold 10 and Gold 4 … to be honest, if you want to seat at Eau Rouge / Radillion take Gold 4! It is cheaper (no roof) but offers also a good view on the rundown from La Source and you can see the cars in Eau Rouge!

    1. Hi Ida, there’s normally an autograph session during the Pit Lane Walk on Thursday. Maybe something will also be organized in the Fan Zone on Saturday, but we need to wait for more information till around 2-4 weeks before the race I think.

  18. SILVER 2 grandstand does not exist anymore, you need to update your editorial to reflect this as its misleading people who read it

      1. Silver 2 does exist. I do have tickets for that one and you still find it on the circuit website. But: it will be different this time. They removed the old stands because WRX. So it is going to be a new grandstand…

        1. Hello! I have gotten tickets for Spa on Silver 2, Block C, Row 2. Do you know if my block (C) is closer to gold 2 or to gold 10? I am worried because my seats are very low and I dont know if I will get a good view…

  19. If we have grand stand tickets and kids under 6, how can we get them seats? Do we need to book the over 6 years old tickets?

    1. Yes, I think you would have to do that. Otherwise they can sit on your lap. But be aware that most of the time all the seats won’t be occupied, so I would think you can sit together on Friday and Saturday – provided they are actually let into the grandstand.

  20. Thanks for a great site!
    I am a little confused about grandstands. I bought tickets to gold 6 grandstand, and later got an email telling me the grandstand was sold out. I accepted Gold 11 tickets instead, but I cant find out exactly where it is?
    I suppuse it should be beside Gold 6? Any help would be appreciated

  21. Sadly, I was at Spa this weekend … never ever thought I would be at a GP where someone dies, all my excitement for Sunday was completely gone after I heard the news when I left the track. :(
    Gold 11 was just a very very small grandstand next to the Main Pitlane Grandstand but offering view towards the last chicane. I think it was just built up because of the sellout of all the other grandstands!

    I was quite happy … for the price I used Friday as a “walk around the track” day and had my numbered (yeah I was also surprised after it was firstly sold without a numbered seat) for the weekend which worth gold – because of the many fans in Bronze.

    1. Thanks Robert. Yes, it was a sad weekend in the end. But I’m glad I was there for the first win of Charles Leclerc. I think it will be the first of many more.

    1. Hi Mark, I’d choose Silver 2 because it’s next to Eau Rouge and you have the F1 Fanzone right behind you. More to see, easier to get to than Silver 3 at Pouhon.

  22. Hi

    Given the choice would you go for Gold 3, Gold 8 or Silver 2 and why? Do you think a covered grandstand is better at Spa?


    1. I’d probably go for Silver 2, because I prefer to walk around in General Admission most of the time at Spa – only would use the grandstand for qualifying and the race. Silver 2 is also right next to the F1 Fanzone and the atmosphere there is great. Having said all that, a covered grandstand at Spa is a good thing – not only for the high chance of rainfall, but also the hot sun that can also be a factor.

  23. Great website Andrew, thanks for all the info, this helped me quite a bit for Suzuka this past year. I was shocked to see how busy Friday was (looking at past footage, the stands seemed quite empty) wondering if it was because of the typhoon, Japan in general, or are all Fridays at F1 races that busy?!

    So my long-winded way to my question: Should I expect a very busy day on Friday in the GA area for Spa 2020?

    Thanks again!

    1. Hi Matt, I think Japan is more of an exception. The Japanese get right into it and go the whole weekend. Plus you can sit in any grandstand at Suzuka on Friday, another reason to go. Spa is not that busy on Friday, but it’s certainly a lot busier than a few years ago (before Max!). It’s still the best day in my opinion to get out and explore this incredible circuit!

  24. Hi, my friend and I are currently struggling to find the best seats for 2021 Spa. We are choosing inbetween Silver 2 and Gold 4, can you recommend one? Another question, if I choose either of those tickets, am I able to walk around track (obviously not like a paddock pass) but around track, closer to pit lane etc? Where am I gonna be able to go?
    Thank you!

    1. Oh, and another question- for Silver 2 I am able to “choose” seat preferences, Row A to H. Do those Rows get counted horizontally or vertically and which one is the better one, closer A or to H ?

    2. Hi Simona, I’d probably choose Silver 2 because it’s cheaper. Gold 4 has better views, but not worth extra money in my opinion. The good thing is that both grandstands are next to Eau Rouge, which is the best part of the track to sit. Right behind is the large F1 Fanzone and places to eat, etc. So it’s where you want to be. For me, the best part of Spa is walking around the General Admission areas – you can do this with any grandstand ticket by the way. There’s an underpass near both those grandstands where you can walk to Pouchon and also up to Blanchimont. Most of the infield near the Paddock is off limits, but you can still check out 80% of the circuit in General Admission. Make sure you have comfortable shoes as the paths can be steep and not paved.

        1. Hi going to bk my grandaughter and I belguim GP 2023 were is best seating or is it better general admission. Like hercto go walk round pit lane.

          1. All depends on what you want to see! Grandstand tickets are better if you want to be in the same place all day, General Admission is better if you’re up for walking and you want to take in views from around the circuit (though there’s no grandstand access with General Admission tickets). The videos in the article give a good idea of the view from each grandstand. Take a look through the other comments on this post too, there’s some helpful advice on which grandstands are best! The pit lane is not open to the public over the weekend. In the past, there was a public pit lane walk on the Thursday of the race weekend, though this was not held in 2022. It’s not yet known if the public pit lane walk will return in 2023. Hope that helps!

  25. Hi! with a friend I am hopefully attending the 2021 Spa Grand Prix but in the 17-27 section, do you have any more details on how it goes, what we are allowed to view and what we have access to in general? Thanks a lot this is a great website, i will not forget to recommend it!!

    1. I don’t have personal experience of this area as I am too old to enter :) But it occupies a large section of the track near Blanchimont, and there’s a camping area attached to it. Normally they also have a stage with concerts etc, but not sure if it will be the same in 2021. Don’t forget you also have access to the other General Admission parts of the circuit as well, so you can still walk around and check out the Fanzone near Eau Rouge and other parts of the circuit.

  26. I’m considering buying tickets for 2021 GP. Unfortunately, 3-days Général admission tickets are sold out. So I am considering the Combes Grandstand but I would very much like to have the opportunity to walk around the General Admission area all along the weekend as well to capture other viewpoints. Does any of you know if the Grandstand ticket gives access to the GA area or am I only authorized to access the grandstand I paid for? Thanks

    1. It seems like this is a new grandstand, so I can’t really say. The price is good however, and it’s close to the campsites! One thing I would mention is that it’s a long way from the fanzone next to Eau Rouge.

  27. Hey there,
    We’re going to the 2021 Belgian Grand Prix and we’re trying to decide where to camp.

    If we buy tickets to a certain stand (say the 17-27 stand down in turn 14) which includes General Admission entry, can we enter the track area anywhere around the track, or do we always have to go in through our entry gate down in turn 14?

    Unfortunately we haven’t been able to find this info anywhere.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    1. Hi Mark, I don’t know of any restrictions on entering other gates. For sure there are recommended gates for each grandstand, but I still think you can enter at a different grandstand and then walk through the circuit to your area.

  28. Good morning,
    I would like to buy tickets for the Belgian GP, ​​but do I need an account to buy them? I tried to make a purchase by going to check out but I don’t see the Paypal payment method I want to use. I await your kind reply

  29. Hi there! Do you have a Facebook group for people attending the Belgian GP like the one you have for the Italian GP? I joined it last year and found it very useful. Cheers!

  30. Hello, this will be my first GP. Do you think it is better to take the GA or to buy the COMBES GRANDSTAND. I think it is a new area and I am not sure that it is worth it.

    1. Hi Alberto, you are right about Combes Grandstand – it is new and it’s hard to see how good the views are. However, I would still buy this grandstand if you can afford it. Even if you spend most of the weekend walking around the General Admission (Bronze) areas, it’s still good to have your own seat for Saturday and Sunday, when the General Admission areas become a lot more crowded.

  31. Do you need a special pass in order to walk the track or pitlane? I already have a weekend ticket for the whole lot, is this enough? And where is most likely to meet drivers?

    1. If you mean to walk ON the track, this is only possible after the race on Sunday. Walking around the spectator areas is fine. The only time regular fans are allowed in the pitlane is on Thursday afternoon, for the pit lane walk. More information in our Trackside post. (Paddock Club guests above the pits also get a pitlane walk on Friday-Sunday, but these tickets are very expensive). Also on Thursday (same time as pitlane walk), there’s normally a drivers autograph session, but it can be very crowded. One suggestion for meeting some of the drivers is to hang around near the entrance of the Hotel de la Source (near the entrance/corner of the same name), as many stay there on race weekend.

  32. Hi Andrew, I’m planning to attend the 2022 Belgian GP. Can you please let me know which stand is better among Gold 5 and Gold 10 ?

  33. Hello ! Thank you for your post very helpful! I do have a question have you sat on gold 9 ? Hows the views ? Cant seem to find a lot of infor from those seats … Also saw it is possible for the Gold ticket holders to go to GA is that still a thing for 2022 ?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Fabio, I’ve never sat in Gold 9 but I think it’s a good choice! Here’s a view from Gold 9 on YouTube. You can see part of the pits and the first corner. To answer your second question, it’s always possible for grandstand ticket holders at Spa (and most other circuits) to go into the General Admission areas. I definitely recommend doing this at Spa, especially earlier in the weekend when there are less fans in GA.

  34. Hello!
    Do anybody know if camping is included in the 17-27 Blanchimont Tickets or do we have to buy camping tickets for young village?

    Thank you

  35. We bought a basic package with hotel, just to get the tickets. The hotel was cheap and in Brussels. We are not planning on staying. Do we just not show up? Do we call and cancel? I don’t want to impact our tickets at all by not staying in hotel we purchased. Newbie question I’m sure. :)

    1. This was an F1 Ticket + Hotel package from F1 Experiences? I think you should probably inform them that you are not planning to use the hotel room. Shouldn’t be any issue with your tickets if you don’t stay in the hotel.

      1. Yes we did book thru F1 Experience. Do I notify F1 Experience or do I notify the hotel directly? We are staying in Liege since it is closer.

  36. My friends has some tickets, but I and another one had not. We would like to go with them and try something there (I’m trying to buy tickets until there). Do you if there is any place around the circuit where is possible watch without tickets?

    1. Honestly, it will be very difficult to see anything from outside the track without tickets. I suggest buying now from a secondary marketplace, or not going at all.

  37. Hi, I am travelling from Aachen by car to the event. I have General Admission ticket for the three days. Can you please suggest which parking area ticket I need to buy to be able to be closer to the General Admission area and also to the highway that connects me to Aachen

    1. You have left it quite late to buy parking tickets, but you can still buy Yellow parking passes on the circuit website. This is considered the best parking area as it’s quite close to the circuit, especially La Source and Eau Rouge area. From there you can walk to various General Admission areas around the circuit. As for getting back to Aachen, especially after the race, Yellow parking SHOULD give you a good exit. However, be aware that you may not have a choice as to the road you take when leaving the circuit due to traffic control. My experience is that you will have to take the road indicated for at least the first 10km before you can choose the direction you take.

  38. Silver 2 and gold 4 are next to one another but gold 4 is more expensive. What is the extra view you get at gold 4 and is it worth the extra money? Is there a general admission area near gold 4?
    Also do child tickets include children aged 15 years?

    1. I’m not 100% sure about the views from each of these grandstands. I think Gold 10 was new in 2022. Personally, I’d probably choose Silver 2 over Gold 4, I’m not sure the views are that much better to justify the higher price. Yes, it is my understanding that children’s tickets apply for 15 or young, should be discounted by about 50% over an adult ticket. And yes, there is some General Admission (Bronze) areas near Eau Rouge, but obviously you don’t get a seat with these. Another advantage of both Silver 2 and Gold 4 is that the main Fanzone is located right behind these grandstands. But remember that tickets are not yet on sale for the 2023 Belgian GP.

      1. Thanks. Unfortunately they’ve lowered the children’s age to 12 for 2023. Really annoying. I was ready to buy for me and my 15 year old brother. Will have to reconsider now. Do you know much about the combes grandstands? They are a cheaper option but not sure about the view.

  39. Hello,
    I want to buy tickets for the Belgian GP 2023 and I was thinking of buying Tickets for the Speed Corner but I couldn’t find a lot of information on them. I’d be very grateful if you could tell me about them.

    1. The Speed Corner grandstand is still quite new, I think they only made it last year. The views are not very good from this grandstand in my opinion, but it is of course cheaper. My advice would be to go for a Silver Grandstand if you can afford it – Silver 2, 3, 4 are all good views.

  40. Hi, do you know around when tickets will be released for sale on the F1 website as well as on motorsport tickets site for the race? I was also curious if you are allowed to pick a seat within the grandstand that you pick, or if it is randomly assigned. Thanks in advance!

  41. I want to go for the first time to GP and I have question – is legit website where you can buy tickets?

      1. Thank you! Can you tell me what is included if I bought tickets for grandstand Silver 2 -can I go to fanzone?

  42. I’m thinking between General Admission ticket or Speed Corner but don’t know which one to choice. The most important thing for me is that there is a TV Screen so that I can see the action and also seating.

    1. If you want a guaranteed seat and a TV to watch the action, you should buy the Speed Corner ticket. General Admission (Bronze) doesn’t have a reserved seat and no guaranteed TV screen, though you will be able to see some TV screens around the track.

  43. Hello
    Do you have any informations about Gold 11? I cant find it on the internet and it is the most expensive tribune and I dont know if it is worth the money?

      1. They already had this tribune in 2022 race. I’ve seen it in some footages.

        Let me summarize the price:
        They want 795EUR for Gold 11 which includes a premium lunchbox and a VIP parking ticket. The lunchbox is worth 50EUR each day. 795EUR – 150EUR makes 645EUR + a parking ticket worth at least 20EUR per day ( thats the price of the normal parking ticket ). 645EUR – 60EUR = 585EUR only for the seats in Gold 11.

        I cant believe that these seats are good when they are totaled up cheaper than other Gold tribunes. Or maybe this is just a great deal which i don’t see at the moment ….

  44. Great articles Andrew but i believe Spa have added more grandstands since this article was written. Notably Silver 3 at Pouhon

  45. Can anyone tell us about TVs in the Bronze viewing areas around the circuit?
    Best spots?
    Time to arrive there to take a good spot?

    1. Not 100% sure of TV placement in the Bronze zone, though sometimes you can see the TVs from nearby grandstands. Friday is normally easier to get a good spot, but it starts to get busy on Saturday and even busier on race day, when you definitely need to get there early to take a good spot.

  46. Hola tengo 1 hijo de 12 años con discapacidad, hay alguna entrada que sea niño con discapacidad (no discapacidad física) y 1 acompañante adulto? gracias

  47. Hi Andrew,

    Are tickets for any of the Gold grandstands still available for this year’s race?

    Also, is it better to stay in Brussels and do the commute or are there better accommodations available close by?

    1. Hello, there are some limited tickets available for Gold Grandstands. In our Belgian Grand Prix ticket shop, we currently have 3-day tickets for Gold 9, which is on the outside of the Main Straight near the first corner, La Source. F1 Experiences also has some packages available with Gold seats, plus additional trackside activities.

      As for where to stay, Brussels is an option, but it’s quite far away. At least 2-3 hours each way via train or bus. More info in this post.

      There are some other cities closer to the track worth considering. You have more info in this post.

      1. Thanks Andrew. So i managed to find tickets for Gold 3 on Stubhub and went for them. SPA has been an all-time bucket list race for me, so wanted to experience it from Eau Rouge. Now i’m just worried if Stubhub will be reliable because they deliver the tickets on July 27 (1 day before the race). Keeping fingers crossed.

        Will be reading your posts on where to stay for the weekend. Liege sounds like a better option then Brussels.

        1. Hi bilal, normally I don’t recommend Stubhub, it’s really only a last resort if all official ticket agents are sold out. You should be fine, but I understand it will be a concern until your tickets are actually delivered. Yes, Liege definitely a better option for staying than Brussels.

  48. Petros Pavlidis

    As we would be at SPA i would like some help.
    1. What time would be good to be at the circuit? We have bronze tickets and like to seat at pouhon turn.
    2. What we will need to take with us? Food/drink is allowed to take?
    3. After the race can you walk back to start? Is it possible and how?
    4. Any other tip for the race day?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hello Petros,
      1. Not sure how you are getting to the circuit, and it also depends on which day, but most people arrive somewhere between 8am and 10am.
      2. Yes, you are allowed to take food and drink. No alcohol and no glass containers.
      3. Yes, you can go on the track after the race for the podium ceremony. It should also be possible to visit other parts of the track. From Pouhon, you can take the walking path back to near the Fanzone, this would be quicker than walking right around the track.
      4. Not sure, but feel free to ask any more questions.

      1. Thanks Andrew!
        1. We will drive from Namur (about 1:30 hours i hope?) and park in Green Zone. Then go under circuit to pouhon. So we will leave the hotel at 8.00 and hope to be their at 9:30….. Is ok?
        2. We must take any chair or plastic to seat on?
        3. How long is we take the walking path (right or left of the track?) to the start? Is always near the track?
        4. Thanks…..

        1. Yes, I think leaving around 8am is ok on race day. Time seems reasonble unless there’s bad weather, which could increase that. If you are in General Admission (Bronze) then it is a good idea to take a small chair or some plastic, even a picnic rug. This is to both be more comfortable, and also to protect your patch of grass to watch the race from. When parking in the Green Parking, you will enter the circuit from the Combes Gate. Nearby you can cross over the circuit and then it’s about a 15-20 minute walk downhill to Pouchon. Check the maps here.

          1. Petros Pavlidis

            Thanks Andrew!
            1. From Pouchon to the start (to watch the ceremony at the end) how long will be to walk (it will take up to 30 min?)? So you say to visit the start before the race or at the end ? And as you say we must walk from the Combes Gate to the start from the right of the circuit (fan zone) and in the end to go under the circuit? ok?
            2. Do you have any map where screens are available to watch?
            Thanks a million!

          2. Hi Petros,
            1. From Pouchon to the Main Straight to watch the podium ceremony, you should allow at least 30 minutes. This is at the end of the race. Leave with plenty of time if you want to get a good view of the podium. The Combes gate is only for entry. From Pouchon to the Main Straight, you have a path that goes around the Paddock and under the track near the final chicane. It’s on the map here, see slide 4
            2. I don’t have a map with locations of the big screens, but you will find them all around the circuit – mainly opposite grandstands.

  49. Hi Andrew,

    I am thinking of purchasing an F1 experience package for the race this year. The champions club gold is what I was looking at but I can not find any view points of the Gold 5 grandstands online… the only thing I see is a simulation showing it pointed towards the pit exit and not Eau Rouge. This would obviously seem like a less than desirable option if so. Can you offer any insight into the view point of this grandstand?


    1. Honestly, it’s been a few years since I was there. For Champions Club, the Business Tower is preferable but this is already sold out. I think the view from Gold 5 is not too bad. It’s a small grandstand with some elevation. You are right, it’s pointing back to La Source, but I still think the views are decent. If you want to contact us directly, we are an official sales agent for F1 Experiences and can handle the purchase for you. Or you can buy online.
