Circuit Zandvoort - Racing Circuit

Circuit Zandvoort has for many years been a key attraction for people to come and visit this small Dutch coastal resort.

Motor racing was popular in the area as far back as the 1930s when the local VVV organised races on the north side of Zandvoort. At first a basic circuit was used but for safety reasons soon led to the need for a proper, self contained racing circuit and 112 hectares of dune land was turned into a 4 km racing track in 1941.

Asphalted in 1948, the Circuit Zandvoort went on to host many motor racing highlights (1952 Grand Prix, 1961 Grand Prix etc).

The last world championship race at Circuit Zandvoort took place in 1985.
