Zandvoort was a very different circuit when it last hosted the 1985 Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix. Three-time world champion Niki Lauda is nearing the end of his career. Battling rising stars like Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna. Although the circuit was revised after several fatal crashes, it’s remained largely unchanged.
Zandvoort is not only known for it’s legendary races and fantastic atmosphere. But it is also famous for its unique location. Because it is less than 1 kilometer from the beach and with asphalt paths on beautiful sand dunes. This circuit is an exciting location for Formula 1 fans, especially for Max Verstappen fans. Who will be competing in his homeland.
Incredibly fast, wavy and old-school are the words Formula 1 drivers use to describe how challenging this circuit is. The fast 18-degree turns like the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Also how the track that gives the sensation of riding a roller coaster make Zandvoort a special circuit like no other.
