World MX GP – Round 8 – Belgium

Published July 20th, 2003

The historic Citadelle Circuit in Namur




This track is so special, you really need to see it in person to appreciate it. They have been having races there since 1947. The circuit is on top of a castle-like fortification, racing on a narrow track with trees surrounding the majority of it. Throw in some pavement and cobblestone sections, along with track-side cafes, and you can see why it’s something special and historic.





The passionate Belgian fans must of had a field day today, as one of their own, Stefan Everts, continues to make history almost every time he rides. He is the winningest GP rider ever, won two GP events today, and has taken over the lead in the point standings of the premier MXGP class.
