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 – choosing a covered grandstand at Spa is also a good idea.

General Admission tickets at the Belgian Grand Prix
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.
General Admission viewing at 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.
General Admission viewing at 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.
General Admission viewing at 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.
General Admission viewing at Pouhon
This is arguably the most popular general admission area at the circuit. There’s 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. Please note that a new grandstand (Silver 3) was added on Pouhon corner in 2016.
General Admission viewing at Blanchimont and the 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.
