Posted on 3 October 2008  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

The Tottenham Hotspur SF Racing Team will look to get back on track when the all-new Superleague Formula motor-racing championship returns for round three in Belgium.

After a fine start with third and sixth places in the opening two races at Donington, the team and driver Duncan Tappy crashed out of both races in round two at Germany's famous Nurburgring last time out.

All's not lost though as the team sit in eighth overall as the championship moves on to round three at another famous circuit, this time Zolder, the former home of the Belgian Grand Prix.

Zolder staged the Belgian Grand Prix on 10 occasions, the first being in 1973 when Jackie Stewart took victory. Michele Alboreto clinched the final F1 race at Zolder in 1984 when he won for Ferrari.

Famous winners at the Flemish circuit also include World Champions Niki Lauda, Mario Andretti and Jody Scheckter.

Practice and qualifying for this weekend's Superleague Formula event kicks off this Saturday with the two 45-minute race scheduled for Sunday.

All the action is live on Setanta - qualifying at 12.10pm on Saturday, race one at 9.40am on Sunday, race two at 12.40pm.
