PIC OF THE WEEK: SPA, HOW WE LOVE THEE

Spa Six Hours prompts a spot of nostalgic 1970s action

Ah, Spa-Francorchamps. The smell of pine carried on the misty Ardennes forest air, augmented by a whiff of tyre smoke or burned oil, the scream of an engine at full-tilt through Eau Rouge... The sound of local residents complaining...

Fortunately that dispute has since been settled, and this weekend will play host to the wonderful nostalgia fest that is the Spa Six Hours, a weekend of racing that celebrates GT cars, touring cars and single-seat racers of yesteryear (get you PH discount here).

The cars you see here are actually from the 1971 Spa 24 hour race, then part of the European Touring Car Championship, and so aren't actually quite the sort of thing you'll see hammering around Spa this weekend, but we think it's a nice spot of black and white racing action and more than worthy of a Spa-based POTW...
