Jan Lammers grew up in Zandvoort and has been visiting the circuit since his childhood days. The sporting director of the F1 Dutch Grand Prix can hardly wait for the race event in his home country. “I am immensely proud that, following the last race in 1985, we can announce the return of Formula 1 to The Netherlands. A fantastic event in the year in which Formula 1 is celebrating its 70th anniversary. As the sporting director, but first and foremost as a race fan, I am really looking forward to this moment. Something we in The Netherlands can be proud of and that we are able to share with the rest of the world! Surely this is something nobody will want to miss.”
Zandvoort is very popular among tourists. The seaside resort attracts no less than five million one-day visitors per year thanks to its beautiful beaches and surroundings. On top of that, Zandvoort is really close to Amsterdam, the best-visited city in The Netherlands.
As a result, Zandvoort is also known as Zandvoort ‘Beach for Amsterdam’. Therefore, Zandvoort is ideal to combine the race weekend with a day at the beach or a trip to our lively capital. There will also be many side events at and around the race track throughout the weekend, so race fans will definitely be able to enjoy themselves.prev View full list next
