History of motor racing in Belgium

The first Belgian Grand Prix took place in 1925 at Spa-Francorchamps, around the Belgian cities of Spa, Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot. Antonio Ascari was an Italian racing driver and winner of the first Belgian Grand Prix.

Since 1950 the Belgian Grand Prix has been part of the first Formula One World Championship.

The Spa-Francorchamps circuit was considered the fastest and longest. Over a long period of time, it has seen severe accidents, even with fatalities. Consequently, the Spa circuit was deemed unsafe in 1972 and the Grand Prix was first moved to Circuit Nivelles-Baulers and then to Circuit Zolder.

The Spa circuit was soon modernized and since 1985 all Belgian Grand Prix events have been held there.

Interesting facts about the Belgian Grand Prix:

  • Michael Schumacher has the most wins in the Belgian Grand Prix. He won the title in 1992, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2001 and 2002;
  • The Spa-Francorchamps circuit is considered the longest in the Formula One championship Schedule (the circuit is 7 km long) which is almost half the length of the previous one;
  • In 2003 the Belgian Grand Prix was cancelled due to the country’s ban on tobacco advertising.
  • Only 20 Belgians have competed in F1 races. Jérôme d’Ambrosio is the last Belgian to compete in the championship. No local driver has ever won in Belgium.
