The Spa-Francorchamps circuit is one of the most famous, incredibly high speed and monstrously challenging race tracks in the world, and the 24 Hours of Spa, while not a part of the World Endurance Championship, is by far and away one of the biggest challenges on the global motorsport calendar.

Taking on this incredible circuit is tough at the best of times, it’s a relentless barrage of high-speed corners and tricky elevation changes, but that challenge gets increased ten-fold during the sunless hours. Not only are you now focussed on keeping the car on the road, you have the bright headlights of your competitors causing constant visibility problems. That said, the adrenaline rush of being involved in this legendary race must be off the scale.
We’ll spare a quick thought for this car, too. A McLaren 720s GT3 car, that looks and sounds incredible, even from the inside as we look here, an interior that’s even more spectacular at night time as the neon LEDs add another layer to this incredible spectacle.
