About the track
This track, situated in the dunes north of Zandvoort (the Netherlands), was inaugurated in 1948. In 1952, Alberto Ascari won the first Grand Prix F1, followed by Fangio, Brabham, Von Trips, Clark, Stewart, Rindt, Lauda, Hunt, Andretti, Piquet and Prost. In 1989, part of the track got closed off, but in 1999, 4,300 meters of fresh asphalt gave life to these famous corners: Tarzanbocht, Hugenholzbocht, Scheivlak and Bosuit (now called Luyendijkbocht). This track is unique due to its close walking distance location to the beach. Highlights are the annual DTM races and the F3 Masters. We cooperate with our colleagues of driving-fun.com for the organization of our track days on this racetrack.
