The famous racetrack of Francorchamps is not located in the city of Spa. Since 1977 Francorchamps has been merged with Stavelot. A village named Blanchimont never existed.
Spa is located in Belgium and not in Hungary, the large lake probably has gone astray.
I'm living in Liège, not far from Spa.
- The circuit is not indeed part of Spa, but Stavelot. The 2 cities are separated by the Malchamps Hill. The circuit is about 10 kilometers far from the city. The airport is part of Spa.
- The springs are not hot, only cold with iron and carbonic gaz (see fr:Pouhon)
- The city is also famous because casinos are born here at the end of the XVIIIth century : "La Redoute" and the "Vauxhall" (see for example Kubrick's Barry Lyndon). A lot of famous personnalities came here for the springs : Tsar Pierre the Great, Marguerite de Valois (Queen Margot), Vaclav Havel, Victor Hugo, ...
- there is indeed a lake in Spa, the "Lac de Warfaz". The river of the city is called the "Wayai". Flowing into the river "fr:Hoëgne", then the river "fr:Vesdre", the river "Ourthe", the river "Meuse", and North Sea.

This move is suggested since spa is a common English word and those uses don't fit into the current article. In fact the different uses of the word spa likely means spa would become a disambiguation page to get individuals to the desired entry.Vegaswikian

Spa, Belgium is also known as: Spau in German and: Spaw and Spawe in English
Taken from highly learned wellsprings (so to speak):
The English Spaw Fountain... https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=IwTbM28WoDMC&pg=PR27&dq=spa+belgium+spaw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjThYX-4sXOAhVmB8AKHULNAu8Q6AEIJTAA#v=onepage&q=spa%20belgium%20spaw&f=false
- None of those links confirm your edit, the sources state that some people named a new place in accordance to Spa in Belgium or that the word Spa (and not the city) is spelled Spa or spaw. You are twisting references in order to find a justification for a word that is neither right, used, nor pertinent.--Gabriel HM (talk) 02:06, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
