The Belgian Grand Prix gets an one year contract extension

Earlier this evening it was announced that the Hungarian Grand Prix will remain on the calendar for an extra year until 2027. Now also the Belgian Grand Prix seems to have obtained a contract extension of one year.

Contract renewal

This is what the Spa Francorchamps racetrack says in a statement on its website. Vanessa Maes, CEO of Spa Grand Prix initially says that she is happy with the race in 2020: "The preservation of this event was made possible thanks to the effort and cooperation of the Walloon government, the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, the RACB, the FIA but also the FOM."

So from these negotiations a contract extension came out, just like for the Hungarian Grand Prix. "The negotiated conditions also make it possible to secure the place of the Belgian Grand Prix on the highly coveted calendar of the Formula 1 World Championship, as they include an extension of our current contract until 2022", Maes says.

Spectacle behind closed doors

Willy Borsus, Walloon Minister of Economy adds that he is happy that Spa can organize the race, even behind closed doors. "This will allow us to offer the many enthusiasts, despite a difficult global context, a beautiful spectacle."
