    Very good read, enjoyed that, thanks! It's a great recreation IMO. Only thing for me that doesn't work is the inclusion of a modern F2 cars around the old SPA. Dunno it just doesn't work for me. I'm getting old maybe but i have never raced anything other than the classic Formula cars there in rF2. The track is amazing with the BT20

    I agree Lee. Love the track, but I can't drive anything but the classics on it either.

    I've just seen the documentary, really worth watching.

    The lap with a new F2 is a good example of how it's the combination of car / track what provides good racing and just not one of them :)

    I enjoyed the documentary very much.I never realized just how many drivers were being killed back then,they were true racing heroes with bravery most of us can't comprehend.

    This track is a sim racing classic IMO. Not meant for anything other than the '60s formula cars though.

    @Lee Ross, that's what I wanted to show with the article and the video and @Xosé Estrada explained it perfectly. I mention the Masta Kink on it, yet on the video I'd bet that someone that doesn't know the track would be unable to tell where it is.

    A good classic track is not the same without classic cars :)

    Glad you've enjoyed the article!

    I appreciate the effort, but I think you could have showed the track a lot better if you had at least given the F2 a low-downforce/high-gear setup so it wouldn't just be 3 minutes of listening to the limiter...

    What a gutwrenching documentary :(
    Very well worth seeing! I'm glad we've come this far in terms of safety nowadays.
