Zandvoort's Positive Shift Ahead of F1 Talks

Zandvoort’s Positive Shift Ahead of F1 Talks

09/05/2024

Zandvoort circuit secures vital leadership as F1 negotiations loom.

Officials at the Dutch GP circuit, Zandvoort, are breathing a sigh of relief as circuit boss Robert van Overdijk has decided to stay on board.

Recently, van Overdijk was strongly linked with a career switch to managing in professional football, with several approaches reportedly made.

But before the critical discussions on extending the Dutch GP contract beyond 2025, van Overdijk is not only staying but has also joined two other Dutchmen in becoming a co-owner of Zandvoort.

“For me, this recognition and the fact that I am now also a co-owner, along with the ambitions we have, is a new encouragement,” he stated.

One of the other co-owners and a member of the Dutch royal family, Prince Bernhard of Orange-Nassau, admitted he was relieved that van Overdijk was staying.

“On one hand, as shareholders, we were flattered by these reports,” he said regarding the rumors linking him to football. “But on the other hand, it was also a wake-up call.”

“We are delighted that he is staying with us and joining the shareholder pool of the circuit.”

“Robert is one of the main architects of F1’s return to this country and to this circuit; he is essential for the future and knows the FOM better than anyone. At a time when F1 wants to impose a rotation on some races in Europe, his expertise will be crucial in negotiating the best possible deal for Zandvoort.”
