Belgian Grand Prix
Held for the first time in 1925 at Spa Regions Race Course, Belgian Grand Prix is the part of Formula One Championship races. Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps race course was built in 1921 in order to host Grand Prix races. However the Grand Prix race weren't held there, instead motorcycle races were held till 1924.
One of the famous factor of the Belgian Grand Prix is it's unpredictably of the weather, which is why since its inception, Belgian Grand Prix has been loved both by the fans and the racers as well. Another fact regarding Belgian Grand Prix is that, it rained during the Grand Prix for 20 consecutive years.
Most of the racers that race on the Spa Course claim that a part of course seems clear and sound, while the next part of course might be wet and slippery which is why the Spa Course is considered as the most challenging course among the racers.
In its inaugural year, the Belgian Grand Prix was won by Antonio Ascari, whose son later also took part in the Grand Prix and won in 1952 and 1953. The first winner of the Belgian GP Antonio Ascari didn't have another chance to win it as he was killed during his next outing at the French Grand Prix.
Later another British racer Richard Dick Seaman was also killed in the race in 1939. The race in 1960 claimed the lives of two racers Chris Bristow and Alan Stacey who died in two different incidents. Alan Stacey died due to rather odd incident as he got hit by a bird in his face.
Due to several deaths in past years, Spa Course was considered to be too dangerous to be hosting Formula One races there, which is why it was decided in 1972 that the future races would be held either at Zolder or at Nivelles Baulers Circuit. Emerson Fittipaldi came out to be the winner of first race that was held at Nivelles.
The track however wasn't as dangerous as Spa Course was but it didn't arouse much enthusiasm as the Spa Course did. The next year the race was held at Zolder and there the race was won by Jackie Stewart.
The race made its come back to Nivelles again in 1974 which was the last time Grand Prix was ever held at Nivelles. In 1974 the race was again won by Emerson Fittipaldi.
The following year the race was hosted again at the Zolder and kept on hosted there for the next nine years. At Zolder, Niki Lauda won the Grand Prix for three consecutive times in 1975, 1976 and 1977.
Later in 1978 the race was won by Mario Andretti and the following year the race was won by Ferrari's Jody Scheckter. Gunnar Nilsson won his only Formula One Championship at Zolder as well.
1981 Belgian Grand Prix was a chaotic one as a mechanic was killed in the pit lane, while the race was won by Carlos Reutemann. Later when the rebuilt Spa Course was opened once again for the races, Belgian Grand Prix returned back to Spa Course.
