The Sachsenring has had a long and varied history, the first race was in 1927 on 8.7 kms of local roads which passed through the town. It survived all political eras and managed to come out of each one the stronger for it.
Over the years, the Spa course has been modified several times. The track was originally 15 kilometres long, but after World War II, the track had some changes, these changes made Spa the fastest open road circuit in the world, and in the final year of the old circuit, riders could average over 200km/h on the circuit. Barry Sheene holds the ultimate race record for this circuit at an astonishing 217.37 km/h !.
