I knew the first pic was the old Spa's Les Combes the moment I saw it, but the second one.. :oops: .. Clermont Ferrand was the first thing that buzzed into my head, but as groubite said, its a Belgian circuit.. so I have no idea. :(

It cant be Zolder, its not Nivelles and previous one is Spa. It must be Chimay.
Is there any more tracks in Belgium? :huh:

Com'on PTRACER... :shock: I wouldn't put two pics of the same circuit... :wow: This one is not Spa... and it is not Willy Mairesse...
By the way, Willy drove a Cortina Lotus in competition only once: 1965 during the Rallye Neige et Glace (North of France), which he did not finish...

FINALLY! Thank you Rob Semmeling. :haha: You did it. :thumbsup:
It is indeed young Jacky Ickx at Chimay during the 1966 'Grand Prix des Frontieres'

Phil Neville did pick it up earlier though, well done!
This pic was taken on the straight right after the start, speeding towards the airpine at 'La Bouchere'

The car is easy, but this is not about the car now is it? :roll:
Anyway its a Ferrari 512S, maybe Peter Schetty driving at the Modena test track?

Nope. See Wikipedia. Nivelles is near Brussels, whereas Zolder is maybe 80km further to the (north-)west, near Hasselt.

No, it's not Modena, or the Midwest.... :tongue:

I'll give two hints:

1. when that photo was taken, the circuit was brandnew.
2. the corner the 512S just exited doesn't exist anymore.
