Porsche Classic Village at the Zandvoort Historic GP 2018

Zandvoort,  a small coastal city in the Netherlands, located not that far capital Amsterdam and the national airport Schiphol, has a decade-long relationship with motorsport. In 2018, the track in the dunes celebrated its 70th anniversary. Since its opening in 1948, the circuit was the home of multiple Formula 1 Grand Prix races. But the history of the race track goes back to the 30s. On June 3, 1939, an international competition for race cars was organized for the first time in Dutch history.   Can you imagine a better way to look back at the history of motorsport than with a race bringing back the cars on the tarmac that made the circuit as legendary as it is now. What can you expect from the 2022 Zandvoort Historic GP?

In addition to the FIA Masters Racing Legends Championship, by popular demand, the F3 Championship will also be run again at CM.com Circuit Zandvoort.  Just as in 2020, Masters Historic Racing is now also bringing its  Masters Endurance Legends to the Netherlands: prototypes and GTs that competed at Le Mans and related championships such as the ELMS and ALMS from 1990 to 2015. 

Masters Historic Racing and co-organiser HARC supply an abundance of historic GTs and touring cars for the program. With the Gentlemen Drivers, Masters will be offering GTs up to 1966, while the HARC will be responsible for the NK GTTC and the NK ’82-’90, covering the construction years 1966 through 1990.

The Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort is the number one historic racing event in the Netherlands.  It is a unique experience that goes beyond just racing. Take for instance Porsche Netherlands which always has a unique display and brings some great cars to the track, often borrowed from the vaults of the Porsche Museum. And these cars are probably raced by guys like Jan Lammers or Gijs van Lennep. And that explains why so many enthusiasts want to be part of it. 

This and much more can be experienced during the Historic Grand Prix weekend of 15, 16 and 17 July 2022! More information and tickets at https://historicgrandprix.nl/en/ .
