Now nine dead and 70 missing, a state of emergency.
Dreadful news. Seems to be badly hit in Belgium too.

...and this is the front entrance! Looks like no Spa - think RMA were there yesterday and today (well probably not anymore).




DN has been cancelled today as marshalls are also volunteer firefighters. Very sad events with loss of life and property.

my mate is a bit shaken, lost his car as a write off (irrelevant given the loss of life around though)

That is sad to hear. UK visiting/DN friend or a local resident?

He wasn’t in a silver gt4 by any chance?

Looks like a lot of damage in the area and track closed for weekend. Hotels taking in homeless due to major damage in Ahrweiler. Updates on Bridge to Gantry. Very tough for residents there.

Now you're talking. I have nothing between Cadwell next week and Silverstone in November...

Are there any spaces on TD left this year or is it TF only?

Currently spaces on DN Aug/Sep and CD in Oct

Don't expect them to last long now the restrictions are easing

Yeah I’d say DN will fill up fast now but there were spaces available a few weeks back

Looking forward to DN at month end hopefully no more snags...I noticed however that Belgium still has the UK on its red list, given this is the quickest route to Germany from Calais has anyone any clarity on whether this impacts people who are transiting through Belgium? Has anyone passed through Belgium recently enroute to the ring?

If you do not have an EU nationality or main residence you may only travel to Belgium for essential reasons or if you have an approved vaccination certificate with full vaccination.
On my return from Ringmeisters, which of course didn't happen, I was in a lay-by in Belgium on the E42, fixing my washer jet hose

Police car stopped to check if I needed assistance (as I had to remove various panels), I gave them the thumbs up, they left without even getting out of their car, let alone checking any documentation
