Track of The Month – December 2021

 Circuit Zandvoort, North Holland, Netherlands

The Race Centre’s Track of the Month for December is Circuit Zandvoort, located in North Holland, Netherlands.

Racing at Zandvoort used to be held on public roads until a permanent circuit was constructed using communications roads built by the German Army during WWII.

Zandvoort was used to host the Dutch Grand Prix from 1948 – 1985. It then took a 36-year break before hosting Formula one again in 2021, having been delayed a year due to COVID-19. The 1952 and 1953 were Formula 2 specification races, but in 1955, Formula One cars took to the track for the first time.

This fantastic track has undergone several changes over the course of its life, the most recent including the addition to banking to the 3rd and final bends, with the aim of promoting overtaking for Formula One round the narrow winding circuit.

Due to the nature of this incredible track, bold driving is required for successful overtakes. With several fast bends and a flowing ‘snake-like’ section, keeping up momentum is a must.

Come to The Race Centre this month to see if you are up to the challenge of Zandvoort.

We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!
