  • Virtual Zandvoort

    I don't know how many of you are familiar with Jimmy Broadbent, but he gives us a little preview of what Zandvoort might be like.

    I know what it is like it is three hours from here and the town Zandvoort is a regular visit because of the great beach there. The track is compact, ike Hungary. It is very primative for a track that will hold a modern F1 race. The city is only going to give a $4mil upgrade. It is in a protected dune area so big constuction is not a qeestion.

      I don't see anything but a single file parade unless it rains. The track is barely wide enough to fit a modern day F1 car as is. Not to mention the biggest asset of the old track, a long straight is gone with the new track.

        I have felt that zandvoort is one of the wider tracks I have been on.

                Piers Courage died there too in a fiery crash.

                  Sadly Zandvoort will be a boredome follow-the-leader track IMO. Catalunya was hardly any better but everyone has grown tired of that **** already. Maybe some weather influence aids this cause but other than that I just don't see any excitement here. Track is pure old school, very narrow by modern standards and quite frankly butchered in the back section. It's OK for a ladder single-spec series but F1? Not so much.

                    Just read an article on the Red Bull team taking to the track for an exhibition in front of packed stands. One driver's opinion is that big balls are needed to drive this track. Sometimes just surviving the mayhem is a win.
