WEC Full Access also follows local driver Sarah Bovy closely throughout the episode which starts with Sarah and her Iron Dames team-mate Michelle Gatting making final preparations ahead of race day as they depart together from Sarah’s home in Brussels.
Spa-Francorchamps also provided plenty of on-track action and the episode shows reactions from the pits as well as raw emotions from both inside the cockpit and the team garages. There’s also footage of private conversations on the grid as pre-race tensions build around which tyre compound to use with the ever-changing weather conditions which Spa is famed for.
