    Rotary Spa Stavelot

    Each year the Rotary club organises a track day for charity at Spa Francorchamps circuit.
    This is why I go, to raise money. Typically I end up donating about 600 after buying track time, buying photos of me on track, buying a helicopter ride round the track ... every bit of profit goes into the rotary fundraising.
    As well as raising money for Dystrophy research, they organise hot laps for the young MD sufferers. They are also race fans, and the track is closed at lunchtime for them to get the chance for fast laps in a group of Ferrari powered race cars.

    Frog if Paul put those up it would infringe someone's copyright.

    Sounds like a wonderful event. Glad you could participate and share with us.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    I'll ask Rotary about that, because their event photographer only prints one of each negative, doesn't store them, and you can't get reprints. They may grant permission.

    Wanted for 2007
    Passenger to operate the cameras so I can concentrate on driving (crash helmet mandatory).
    Also to take photos of me on track so you can see me in action.
    Transport in smart car possible from points on the route to the Chunnel.

    It's a one day event early in November.
    I'll get an update from the rotary soon.

    They've changed the bus stop at Spa and resurfaced from there round to the minor race pit entry, so I'll be watching any racing there on the TV to get an idea of the new layout
    I don't want to be too surprised on the entry after only one sighting lap behind the pace car !
