Vielsalm – Festival de l’Automobile

Vielsalm – Festival de l’Automobile

Once a year, the motor sporting world’s attention in this region of Europe switches away from Spa and the legendary Nurburgring to the festival staged at Vielsalm.

Once a great circuit of 12km which rivaled the classic race circuits in the region, now down scaled to a size of 4.38km holds one meeting a year. A mixture of public roads and purpose built race track make this a spectacular event for all involved.

The track itself consists of spectacular scenery and elevation changes as well as fast flowing turns and blind apexes. It’s a stern test for every driver that pits their wits at the venue.

If anyone is interested in finishing development on this circuit please contact me. As all it really needs is finishing up in terms of TSOs.

I don’t really want this track converting to other formats in this state. Sorry.

Global Motorsport Technologies secured an official Knockhill license in late 2007.

At least until the heavens opened anyway. We were also provided with highly accurate CAD data used to recreate this immersive surface.

The project is presently on hold due to lack of time to complete it due to real life commitments.
