The weather in Belgium is usually changeable, and there have been many wet races at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit. On Friday however, some very bizarre images surfaced: Spa was ravaged by a storm, resulting in a flooded circuit.

At the moment the thunderstorm hit the circuit, the Spa Euro Race was ongoing and had to be stopped due to the circumstances. According to the organisation, the storm was so violent that it damaged the circuit.

The circuit then turned into a swirling river, with flooding between La Source and Eau Rouge. An access tunnel was also flooded. Recently it was announced that the Belgian government wants to admit 75,000 fans at the Belgian Grand Prix, which is scheduled for August 29.
