Historic Film - 1955 Belgian Grand Prix
I was reading a NY Times article this weekend and there was an article about the Belgian Grand Prix. It is good article about the risks on what the Times stated is one of the most challenging and dangerous of all the tracks that host Grand Prix racing. In that article was a historical reference that the track used to be 10 miles long whereas for safety reasons is only 4.5 miles now.
