Le Selys Housed within the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Liège, Le Sélys features an aperitif area and two dining rooms, including the Lovinfosse room (named after a Liège artist) decorated with Chinese frescos dating from the 18th century.The restaurant also has a South-facing terrace with an unbeatable view of the glowing city.Three adjoining private rooms are also available for private meetings with or without catering.IXOLocated close to the University of Liège, IXO is the reference for clubbing in the Province of Liège and beyond.You stare up at this mountain of tarmac to where it crests blindly left towards the high-speed Kemmel straight. On your right, across the track, lies the old pit complex.And when the Tannoy crackles into life, it really does feel like you're back in the golden age of grand prix racing when men were men and everybody was just a little bit more glamorous.
From the aperitif to the pousse-café, you can also discover the very trendy ambiance of the bar.Otherwise, you're looking at travelling from as far away as Liège, Eupen or even Aachen. There are numerous campsites nearby, where the excellent local brews flow freely, the four-to-the-floor dance music is loud and proud and the mud is as thick as the average junior driver.That's how it should be at Spa, however, it's a race circuit for die hard fans. The Ardennes has its own odd little microclimate and there's a hefty chance that it will rain at some point during the weekend. The flat-out 330km/h blast of the Kemmel straight into the hard-braking overtaking point at Les Combes.Dishes include Tagliata Kangaroo with mango chutney and rind gatte in 'bravas' style and Spaghetti 'Valdostana', which features filet of veal, sage, white wine sauce, fontina cheese and Parma ham.Hôtel de La Source You can't get closer to the race action than this new hotel built close to the circuit entrance.
If it happens to be a wet weekend throughout, it will be stinking wet, so bring the appropriate gear. This is one of F1's most incredible circuits and one where, for once, a fancy grandstand seat isn't your best option. This is the daddy of them all (which means Suzuka is probably the mother of all circuits). That leads to tricky, off-camber Rivage, fast and flowing Pouhon, the awesome full-throttle ride through Blanchimont and then the final squirt through the Bus Stop chicane and across the line before beginning another massive lap with the hairpin at La Source.
