iRacing.com – New Zandvoort Previews

iRacing has released three new previews of the Circuit Park Zandvoort, showing the European track at a 99% complete state. iRacing’s version of the Dutch track is due to be released next week.

Opened in 1948, Circuit Park Zandvoort has hosted 30 editions of the Dutch Formula One Grand Prix, today’s layout is 4.18 kilometers long and consists of 11 turns.

Located in the near-beach dunes, the track is notorious for sand being blown on track. The layout is made up of slow and quick corners as well as many elevation changes that make Zandvoort a rather tricky place to drive. Even though Formula One is long gone, the track still hosts many major events, including DTM & WTCC touring car racing as well as an annual A1GP event.

In related news, iRacing’s Steve Myers has released another one of his famous “Cat Herder” blogs were he usually outlines many of the upcoming features and content additions. The newest issue talks about Philip Island and the Ford Falcon V8 Supercar, both of which should be available in May.

Furthermore, iRacing is working on introducing multi-class racing, maybe as early as with the next build. You can read more about that and plenty of other stuff in his latest blog here.
