The BIG5 track day at Spa Franchorchamps is one of the most popular BIG5 events, so participants are distributed are two days, the Monday and the Tuesday. I was driving on the Monday. However, during my track-day, I heard that there would be 4 One-77’s participating on Tuesday, maybe even 5! So on Tuesday, before I drove home to Amsterdam, I went back to the track, to see if I could snap some pics of the One-77’s. I was able to make some quick photo’s in the pit lane, but did not have enough time to make real work of it. Luckily, my friends Alexander van Boekholdt en Paulien Aerts were there the entire day AND were so friendly to allow me to use some of their great photos. Thank you!
I love driving my V12 Vantage on the track. And I am proud to say, I’m slowly getting better at it too 🙂 Last week at the BIG 5 track event, I was able to do about 40 laps around my favorite circuit, Spa Franchorchamps. Here’s one of my laps, filmed by my friend Mark with his phone while in the passenger seat. It’s a bit shaky, but I think it gives a good impression of what it’s like to drive a V12 Vantage around this beautiful track. Enjoy:
Yesterday I posted my pit lane pictures for this week’s event at Spa. Now here’s some action pictures of Astons driving on the track. Most picture taken by me, except for the ones that show me and Red on the track, which are taken by my wife Sytske.
This Monday and Tuesday my favourite Aston Martin Big 5 event was held again: the track days at Spa Francorchamps. I had signed up for the Monday, so I spent most of the Monday doing my rounds of the track, of course in my favourite track beast, the red V12 Vantage. However, I did find the time to make a lot of picture too. Here’s my selection of photos taken in the pit lane.
Quick reminder for all Aston owners in Europe: On May 15, this year’s official Aston Martin BIG 5 events will kick-off with the track day at the Nürburgring GP Strecke. Interested? Then book your place here. The GP Strecke is a very nice track (check the pic for me and my red V12 Vantage at last year’s event), so I highly recommend joining.
