The Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort welcomes full grids of well known historic racing cars for the 2015 edition. Take the FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship for example. Almost 25 Formula 1 cars will be seen on track. The demonstration programme will be a feast for the eyes and ears as well, including performances of BMW Classic and Formula 1 vehicles of Michael Schumacher and Damon Hill. The Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort takes place on August 28, 29 and 30.
The Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort has been well established in just three editions. Every year, more international historic racing series and drivers want to take part in the three-day event. A good example is the FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship, a series for Formula 1 cars from the era 1966 – 1985. The good old times of the Dutch Grand Prix will return.
The championships of Pre ’66 Grand Prix Cars and Pre ’61 Grand Prix Cars include many Formula 1 vehicles too and are travelling, as always, to Circuit Park Zandvoort with a large amount of participants.
Something different, but just as spectacular, is the one-hour race of the FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship. Vehicles like the ‘Le Mans’ sports prototypes built in the years 1962 – 1974 will compete in this series.
Demonstrations are traditionally an important and popular ingredient of the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort. BMW Classic selected some of the most known and successful BMW race cars and these will be piloted by renowned drivers. Even as fast and noisy as are the Formula 1 cars from the era 1982 – 2002, like the Benetton B192 of Michael Schumacher, the Arrows A18 of Damon Hill, the Alfa Romeo 182B of Andrea de Cesaris and the Jordan EJ12 of Takuma Sato. More announcements are following in due course.
Porsche partners the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort once again and will treat the audience with a special Porsche demonstration.
Last but not least, dozens of drivers will present their formula, touring or GT car to the public during the traditional parade through the centre of Zandvoort!
Historic formula cars
The FIA Lurani Trophy, meant for Formula Juniors, and the Historic Formula 2 racing series are regular visitors of the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort. The earlier announced races of the Group C vehicles will not go ahead, but will be replaced by the championship of the Historic Monoposto Racing. They will hit the Zandvoort race track again after a one-year absence. A large and various field of formula cars is guaranteed. It will include vehicles from Formula Vee, Formula Ford, Formula 2, Formula 3 and more.
The spectacular field of GT cars of the Gentlemen Drivers can count on fast and well-known Dutch participants. Tom Coronel and David Hart won a race with their AC Cobra last year. In 2012, the Dutch national anthem was played for Jan Lammers and Michiel Campagne, racing their Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport.
The starting grid of the NK HTGT and the NK GTTC can count on 57 cars. The NK HTGT is the racing series for GT and touring cars from the era 1947 – 1965 while the NK GTTC receives entries for the same type of vehicles from the years 1966 – 1981.
