Circuit HistoryEdit

Circuit Park Zandvoort-1948

The circuit in 1948

Prior to World War II, there had been plans for a race track in the area. The local club had held street races in the late 30s, but after the war a track was laid out, largely on defense roads built by the German Army.

Circuit LayoutsEdit

Previous LayoutsEdit

The original layout in 1948 was 4.193 km (2.605 mi). After the fatal accident of Piers Courage at Tunnel Oost in 1970, a chicane was added just before at Hondenvlak. The track length from 1972-79 was 4.226 km (2.626 mi). A second chicane was added before the 1980 race, tightening up the Panoramabocht.
