Zandvoort – a circuit with historic appeal
Last year was the first Formula 1 race in the Netherlands since 1985. Zandvoort is a circuit steeped in motorsport history. The first race was held on the permanent Zandvoort Circuit just three years after the end of the Second World War in 1948. The first Formula 1 race was staged just four years later in 1952, seventy years ago. The circuit is also relatively unique to Formula 1 by the fact that it has banked corners, similar to race circuits in the US.
Iconic drivers have won at Zandvoort including Alain Prost, Jackie Stewart and Niki Lauda and the track was famously featured in John Frankenheimer’s Grand Prix.
Zandvoort itself is a charming coastal town located just 20 miles from Amsterdam. With sandy beaches flanked by endless sand dunes, the dunes can also be spotted from the circuit itself. The town receives no less than five million day visitors a year and is a popular beach day trip for people living in Amsterdam. Zandvoort will certainly be putting on many side events during the race weekend in September and the atmosphere is certain to be electric!
