On Friday, a heavy flood hit the circuit of Spa-Francorchamps damaging the famous Belgian track.
A heavy storm hit the Belgian venue on Friday, stopping the activity of some regional GT and touring car championships.
The heavy rain caused a lot of water to enter the track before the Eau Rouge Raidillon corner, causing a lot of damage to the track. Tunnels were completely flooded and parts of the asphalt were lifted by the water.
“The track surface at the endurance grandstands, which has been lifted by the forces of nature, will be repaved,” the circuit said in a statement on Saturday.
“The sides of the track have also been damaged and a very thorough clean-up is required. The floods have not just carried along the water, but also earth and mud.
“Several parts of the circuit have been flooded, including VIP boxes, basements, and the tunnels at Ster, Eau Rouge, and Blanchimont.”
The reparations needed should be done within Tuesday to allow the activity around the track to restart.
“Our track workers and subcontractors have been very busy since Friday afternoon to make the circuit race-ready again,” Spa-Francorchamps CEO Nathalie Maillet said.
“I can assure you the circuit will be operational again on Tuesday.”
