A relaxed event where fun prevails !

The Zandvoort Oldtimer Festival will be back on Friday to Sunday 28-29-30 July 2017. We’ve now succeeded in organizing a track day in advance, followed by a two-day race weekend. Again the Legendary Circuits Race will include the ‘Antonio Bertini Memorial Trophy’ for MG Midgets, Austin Healey Sprites and all derivatives.

  • You only pay one entry fee for the weekend, forget those needless membership- and registration-fees.
  • All you need is a national [A] licence.
  • Leave your HTP papers at home, you won’t need them, when racing with me.
  • This is an all-comer event for Historic Road Sports ánd Touring Cars up to and including 1976, but later period cars, that fit the grid, are also welcome. We appreciate cars to race in period style.

Join in and enjoy! Make absolutely sure that you’re on the Zandvoort Oldtimer Festival grid and pay your 250€ deposit today and the 225€ remainder before 1 July 2017, or … pay the full amount of 450€ all-in-one today, and save 25€. Quickly fill out the form below and … send today!

Chequers Paddock Club

The ‘Chequers Paddock Club’ is the centre of the paddock at the Zandvoort Oldtimer Festival. The Apéritif before dinner provides all drivers [and teams] with an excellent opportunity to meet and enjoy a refreshment, after a hard days’ work. The ‘Chequers Brasserie’, is offering its restaurant services, which at Zandvoort include lunches and dinner on the Saturday ánd Sunday, with unlimited refreshments.

With the arrival of a ‘Lounge Area’, the Chequers Paddock Club has gained immense popularity amongst the drivers and their teams. The combination of this ‘joie de vivre’ and the ‘fair competition’ is what makes the ‘Legendary Circuits’ Series stand out and the opportunity you’ve always been looking for.

Since 2015, we’ve added a ‘Chequers Lounge Area’, where you or your party can comfortably chill out in day time, take a refreshment, start your evening with an apéritif or end the evening in style. Unlimited refreshments available all day.

It is the combination of ‘joie de vivre’ and ‘fair competition’ which makes racing in the Legendary Circuits Series the ‘Ultimate Motor Sport Experience’.

Circuit details

The first Zandvoort street race was organized on June 3, 1939. A permanent race track was only constructed until after WWII. The circuit was inaugurated on August 7, 1948 and it was in 1949, that we saw the first Dutch Grand prix. Through the years the circuit length varied until the current circuit was constructed in 1999 with a length of 4.300 kilometers (2.672 mls). The circuit of Zandvoort is located only 75mtrs away from the sea front. Surrounded by a beautiful dunes area, north of the little beach town Zandvoort, the circuit is rather undulating and features many elevation changes. The corners are of many different cambers and angles. Particularly the notorious ‘Scheivlak’ corner, which goes up and down and to the right, all at the same time. The ‘Tarzan’ hairpin at the end of the straight still is one of the most famous corners in motor racing today.

The Antonio Bertini Memorial Trophy

The old F.I.S.C. drivers core group will organize the “Antonio Bertini Memorial Trophy”, in order to commemorate the late Antonio Bertini [I]. Antonio, an enthusiastic Speedwell Sprite driver in the former F.I.S.C. Spridget Competitions, tragically died in a car crash in his 1965 Marcos 1800 GT, in the Oldtimer-Rallye Modena Cento Ore Classic, in June 2014. For this purpose, three “Antonio Bertini Memorial Trophy” trophies, engraved in glass, will be made available for the Spridget Class, in this year’s Zandvoort Oldtimer Festival event.
