A new page of the Circuit’s century-old story will be written with the return of the Spa-Francorchamps track to the FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) calendar.

A renowned event on the World Endurance calendar from 1973 to 2003 with the name of the 24 Hours of Liège, this wonderful meeting will be back once again on our ultra-fast undulating track in 2022 and let’s not forget its iconic corners: Raidillon, Double Gauche, Bruxelles, Chicane, and so on. This event will delight all two-wheel enthusiasts and the general public will enjoy this exceptional show.

The Circuit is thrilled to be able to welcome everyone back with lots of attractions and renovated infrastructure and facilities to offer an amazing weekend to those who love motorcycles.

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY

The Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps hosted the first race in its history on 12 August 1921. Because the scheduled auto race had a lack of registrations, the circuit was inaugurated by a motorcycle race: the first Belgian Motorcycle Grand Prix!

Two categories were in contention on the former 14 km track: the 350 cc and the 500cc with 21 entries.

 

The Belgian Grand Prix, 24 Hours of Liège, and Superbike were all part of the wonder years of motorcycling at the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps and there were many constructors who were renowned in the country like: F.N., Gillet, Saroléa, and so on.

 

The start of a great story with new pages just waiting to be written.

THE FIM EWC WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

The spectacular FIM EWC World Championship showcases motorcycles and men (but also some women) in 8 hour to 24 hour tests.

At the moment, the 2022 calendar includes 4 rounds and a 5th date will be announced in due course to complete the calendar: the 24 Hours Moto, the 24H SPA EWC Motos, the Suzuka 8 Hours and the Bol d’Or.

 

The FIM EWC has specific features that are unique in motorcycle sport. All events are contested in part at night, even during 8 hour races. The FIM EWC is one of the rare World Championships where there is a free choice of tyre. Something else that’s original about the FIM EWC are the spectacular Le Mans style starts where the riders race across the track to jump on their bikes.

 

On the long distance events that put riders and bikes to the test, teams of two or three riders take turns gripping the handlebars of machines that are very close to standard production bikes.

LES COURSES 2022

Le retour d’une course de légende ! Épreuve renommée au calendrier de l’Endurance mondiale de 1973 à 2003 sous le nom de 24 Heures de Liège, ce grand rendez-vous populaire retrouve en 2022 un tracé vallonné ultra rapide sans oublier ses virages mythiques : Raidillon, Double Gauche, Bruxelles, Chicane…, qui raviront les passionnés de deux roues et offriront un spectacle exceptionnel au public.

De nouvelles pages de l’histoire du sidecar vont s’écrire au Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. Le Championnat du monde FIM de Sidecar a vu le jour en 1949.

 

Il connaît une véritable renaissance depuis quelques années grâce à son nouveau management. Il peut aujourd’hui se targuer de présenter des grilles de grande qualité, provenant de toutes les principales nations européennes de course de Sidecar.

 

Le Sidecar est un sport moteur où les passagers masculins et féminins s’affrontent sur un pied d’égalité mais aussi un véritable sport d’équipe où le rôle du “passager” est à peu de choses près aussi important que celui du pilote.

 

Ses règlements stricts garantissent une parfaite égalité entre les bolides de 600cc, boostés par la puissance des moteurs de constructeurs de motos reconnus (Honda / Yamaha / Kawasaki / Suzuki), promettant ainsi des courses haletantes et compétitives.
