The Circuit Zandvoort is located near the North Sea and cities like Haarlem and Amsterdam. It’s a challenging track, known for its flowing curves between the dunes. The city of Zandvoort is really worthy to visit because of its many beach clubs and restaurants.
The circuit gained popularity because of its fast, sweeping corners such as Scheivlak as well as the “Tarzanbocht” (Tarzan corner) hairpin at the end of the start/finish straight. Tarzanbocht is the most famous corner in the circuit. Since there is a camber in the corner, it provides excellent overtaking opportunities. It is possible to pass around the outside as well as the easier inside lane. This corner is reportedly named after a local character who had earned the nickname of Tarzan and only wanted to give up his vegetable garden in the dunes if the track’s designers named a nearby corner after him.
Zandvoort will host the Dutch Grand Prix for 2020 and beyond for a duration of at least three years, with the option to host another two in the future.
Barrier-free toilets and showers can be found directly inside the paddock of Zandvoort.
Where to Eat
At the end of the pits, you’ll find Mickey’s Bar and Bernie’s Bar & Kitchen.
