    The circuit's full name is Spa-Francorchamps as opposed to simply Francorchamps.

    "Yves Montand acts a scene from a feature film about racing cars - the film was called "Grand Prix". The blonde actress with him is Eva Marie Saint.

    The race took place on 12 June 1966. Surtees in seen wining the race in his Ferrari.

    Did anyone see Eva Marie Saint in the 1996 version of "Titanic" starring Catherine Zeta-Jones? What do people think of that version?

    We have footage in our archive of the Titanic - search for the ship to watch it.
