Zandvoort Classic

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.

Chequers Paddock Club

— Seats Sold Out —

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 the Zandvoort Classic 2019 will include welcome snacks on the Friday evening, breakfast on the Sat&Sun, lunches on the Sat&Sun and an abundant dinner on the Saturday evening. Enjoy unlimited refreshments during the day and your meals. Apart from the usual mineral water, and sodas, I have some great white and red wines in stock, but perhaps you prefer a Dutch Heineken Export Beer? Seats are always sold on a first come, first serve basis. Seat price 120€.

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’.

In order to know what differential to choose for Zandvoort It might be handy to know that the length of the straight is about 635m. Under circumstances the corner before the straight is crucial. I remember from the old days, that I shifted into 4th gear only after this corner. Nowadays I’m in 4th gear well before that corner, which would add another 75m [?].
