Circuit Zandvoort is known as a real ‘old school’ track with fast, banked and challenging corners, shaped by the natural dunes.
With a circuit length of 4.3 kilometres, it ranks among the shorter tracks on the F1 calendar. Hardly anywhere else, drivers zoom past the race fans this often! The short pit lane allows for three-stop strategies. Action guaranteed.
The Dutch Grand Prix was a near-mainstay on the Formula 1 calendar for the first 35 years of the championship’s history, but after an absence of equal duration Zandvoort is back for 2020.
The circuit has been truncated and altered since Niki Lauda’s 1985 victory while for Formula 1’s return the track has been resurfaced, with modifications to Gerlachbocht and, most prominently, the now-banked final corner.
Paddock facilities and fan access has also been upgraded and altered. Formula 1 will race into Zandvoort on 1-3 May, with Formula 2 and Formula 3 part of the support package.
« Our job is to upgrade the circuit to the required Formula 1 standards,» said Dromo’s boss Jarno Zafelli.
« Together with Zandvoort, the FIA, FOM and the drivers, we are now fully involved in the process to see how we can best adjust the track.»
« Some changes will be visible, some will not. It’s about details. The main goal is to keep the circuit as a classic circuit. I’m really not going to destroy the structure and heritage of Zandvoort.»
