NEWS: Spa Pick RSR as 2012 Driver School

Look what our pals at RSR Nurburg have sorted for 2012 – becoming le Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps authorized driver’s school. Bravo Ron and team! This partnership opens up new opportunities to drive this awesome world renowned track – in a well-prepared Lotus, Porsche GT3 or more – to practically anyone from around the globe, almost every day of the week, throughout the season. Great news for track fans! RSRNurburg, Ron Simons Racing Nurburg, have built a reputation of excellence over the past 15 years at the famous Nűrburgring for driver training, instruction, track car rentals, corporate events and tour rallies – and we've sampled their ace brand at the Green Hell and Spa, in a variety of cars, and loved the slick branded experience. And Ron's unique tuition style. Now, they are expanding their business – over the border into Belgium at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. Pierre Alain Thibaut, General Managing Director at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, said: "Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is in general working on bundling products and services to be able to open up the racetrack to the general public for more days a year and for every budget. This partnership where the circuit brings in the facilities and RSRSpa brings in the cars to drive it, is the most important in a series of improvements and extensions on and around Spa Francorchamps. The goal is to extend the number of available driving sessions for the recreational and non-racing customer. This will result in the track being available for this for a few days a week throughout the season. We are pleased to have RSR Nűrburg on board with us. RSR are a professional company that has built a successful business on a reputation of excellence that is known and respected worldwide. Bringing their cars, expertise, various driving & instruction packages and programs to Spa will open up new opportunities for customers from around the world and we look forward to a long and successful partnership with them."
RSRNűrburg and now RSRSpa boss, Ron Simons said: "We are very excited to be able to offer our customers the opportunity to drive at two of the very best tracks in the World. It is a very logical step since we have been increasing our presence at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps with our tour rallies, track instruction, car rentals and corporate events gradually over the past few years. Drawing on the knowledge & expertise that we have built up at the Ring we will be able to tailor-make new programs for Spa. The excellent facilities at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps are within easy reach, just over an hours’ drive away along some fantastic roads through the beautiful Eifel and Ardennes countryside. Not only will this expansion of our business give our existing customer base an extended range of options to choose from but what this partnership really means is that virtually anyone will be able to book a an ‘arrive & drive’ package to sample the fantastic track that is Spa Francorchamps."
There will be considerable investment in the RSRSpa presence at Spa with new facilities, staff and additions to the fleet of currently around 60 cars for the new season in 2012.

Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is one of the oldest and most respected tracks in the world. Its history dates back from 1898 and therefore truly exceeds 100 years of motorsport. The Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is the venue of the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix and the Spa 24 Hours endurance race. It is celebrated as one of the most challenging race tracks in the world, mainly due to its fast, hilly and twisty nature. Corners like Eau Rouge and Blanchimont are considered the best corners in the world and so it’s no wonder Spa is considered to be THE favourite circuit of many racing drivers and fans alike. More info can be found under or by contacting Chantal Bantz on Tel; +32 8729 3710 or by email at
