Pau Grand Prix

Letters from readers

The XXII Belgian Grand Prix

Lotus all the way Spa, Belgium, June 9th The second of the 1963 Grande Epreuves took place on the super-fast Spa-Francorchamps circuit, nowadays not such a billiards-table as it used to be, and with patches of new surface where last winter's frost had caused damage.
