The collapsed access tunnel beneath the Spa Francorchamps circuit, the traditional Belgian GP venue, has been repaired.
The circuit has been temporarily closed after the collapse – which happened near the daunting Blanchimont corner – so that necessary repairs to the run-off areas, guard rails and track surface cracks could be performed.
The Belgian newspaper De Morgen reports that Spa is yet to reopen, but will do so once the repair works have been completed, which is expected to occur on Thursday.
The next race event scheduled to be held at Spa Francorchamps will be during the following weekend.
Let’s hope they get this fixed quickly!
