The Spa 24 Hours is the highlight of the Blancpain calendar. GridStars has attended this event a number of times but this year we really began to appreciate the performances off track more than on.
The pit lane at a GT event is not for the faint hearted, being run over is just one lapse in concentration away. For the pit crews however this is something they put to the back of their mind's as they stand in wait for a ton of carbon fibre in need of tyres and fuel to come racing towards them.
Don't get us wrong the cars are impressive but watching the teams change fuel and tyres at 4 am like their lives depend on it is possibly even more so.
