    International Travel

    Brussels International Airport, or Cologne Airport in Germany, are approximately the same distance from the circuit - 110km and 90km respectively. The closest airport is in Maastricht, but it can be more difficult to get a direct flight.

    As Belgium is one of the UK's closest neighbours, many fans based in the UK chose to drive to the track. For those interested in driving from the UK, there are a couple of options to cross The Channel. Ferry's are available from Dover to Calais, and the transfer takes approximately 90 minutes. Alternatively, the Eurotunnel departs from Folkstone and arrives in Calais a mere 35 minutes later. The drive from Calais to Spa will usually take around 4 hours, depending on traffic.
