Thrill meets Nature: Round 5 in Spa-Francorchamps.

Seven kilometres of possibilities – the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is long, fast and built for thrilling overtaking duels. It's also a stress test for the drivers, because the woods will show you what you're made of.

For some, Belgium conjures up images of wooded hills - or chocolate. Supercup fans think of Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars racing up the Eau Rouge at full throttle. Belgium is a country of contrasts, and that includes the weather at the circuit of Spa. It’s been known to rain in the La Source corner while the sun is shining at Les Combes. But one thing is clear: It's a fitting place to kick off the second half of the international pinnacle of the Porsche one-make series as part of the Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix.

At just over seven kilometres, the circuit is the longest on the Supercup calendar and is renowned for its challenging layout. The considerable elevation changes, totalling around 100 metres, have led to its nickname: Ardennes Rollercoaster. High speed sections alternate with tricky combinations of corners. This makes the track a favourite with drivers, who can show off their skills with spectacular overtaking manoeuvres.

I really like Spa-Francorchamps – I recently won a race here in the Carrera Cup Deutschland. Obviously I’d like to to build on that performance in the Supercup.

Dense forests and tighter championship standings.

In 2022 Dylan Pereira won at Spa, followed by #25 Larry ten Voorde (NLD/Team GP Elite) and Laurin Heinrich – a leading trio that fought for the championship title until the very end. This year, at least four drivers still have a good chance of winning the Overall Classification. The duels between #1 Bastian Buus (DNK/BWT Lechner Racing) and his British team-mate #3 Harry King, Ten Voorde and #11 Dorian Boccolacci (FRA/CLRT) will continue to be fierce.

Thrilling: King won the first of the two Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland races at Spa in April, #24 Loek Hartog (NLD /Team GP Elite) won the second. On 30 July we will find out who of the 31 starters in the 2023 Porsche Supercup will take the win.

After Belgium, there will be a break of several weeks before the big Supercup finale at the end of August: the double-header at Zandvoort and the season finale at Monza just one week later. This makes it all the more important for the drivers to give their all in Belgium and gain a head start for the final races. Best conditions for an entertaining corner chase through the forests of Spa!
