As the F1 paddock gets ready to come off its summer break and head to the treacherous, historic circuit at Spa Francorchamps August 26-28, Mazda's U.K. arm has let loose this video walk-through of the circuit, narrated by Mark Ticehurst, factory Mazda MX-5 GT race driver, as he runs a qualifying lap.

The lap was run in the damp ahead of the Britcar Dunlop Production GTN Championship's visit to Spa, June 24-26. While the speeds are significantly lower than what the F1 cars will see, the fact that the MX-5 GT gets up to 135 mph on the Kemmel straight highlights just how fast the track is.

Ride along on this bumper-cam view as Ticehurst gives us tips on what it takes to put together a race-pace lap.
