iRacing.com – Circuit Park Zandvoort Announced
iRacing.com keeps on expanding their track portfolio in terms of European tracks as the recent announcement on Oulton Park and Brands Hatch joining the simulation is now followed by news that Dutch Circuit Park Zandvoort will be available to iRacing subscribers in early 2010.
Opened in 1948, Zandvoort will be the first iRacing track to be located in mainland Europe. The track 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.
