This is a great reward. Six times winner of 24 Hours of Le Mans, two-time vice-world champion of F1, victorious at the 24 Hours of Spa but also at the 1000 km of Spa, Jacky Ickx received a very special distinction from the Belgian city. The former record holder for victories in Sarthe was indeed made an Honorary Citizen of the spa town.

« A day spent at Spa is always a good day, he smiled alongside Sophie Delettre, mayor of Spa. But when you have the chance to attend the Spa Revival and also be made an Honorary Citizen, it becomes a unique day."

For Jacky Ickx, this is the third award of this kind after having been made Honorary Citizen of Le Mans (2000) and Stavelot (2017).

Before him, the only driver to have received the same distinction from the city of Spa is none other than Michael Schumacher in August 2012. This is my other home, confided the six-time winner of the Belgian Grand Prix at the time. I feel like I'm in my living room. »
