Track Infos from Wikipedia :

Circuit Zandvoort (known as Circuit Park Zandvoort until 2017) is a motorsport race track located in the dunes north of Zandvoort, Netherlands, near the North Sea coast line.

1930s to mid 1980s

There were plans for races at Zandvoort before World War II: the first street race was held on 3 June 1939. However, a permanent race track was not constructed until after the war, using communications roads built by the occupying German army. Contrary to popular belief John Hugenholtz cannot be credited with the design of the Zandvoort track, although he was involved as the chairman of the Nederlandse Automobiel Ren Club (Dutch Auto Racing Club) before becoming the first track director in 1949. Instead, it was 1927 Le Mans winner, S. C. H. “Sammy” Davis who was brought in as a track design advisor in July 1946 although the layout was partly dictated by the existing roads.

The first race on the circuit, the Prijs van Zandvoort, took place on 7 August 1948. The race was renamed the Grote Prijs van Zandvoort (Zandvoort Grand Prix) in 1949, then the Grote Prijs van Nederland (Dutch Grand Prix) in 1950. The 1952 race was the first to be run as a round of the World Drivers’ Championship, albeit to Formula Two regulations rather than Formula One regulations like all the European rounds of the Championship that year; a similar situation also applied to the 1953. There was no Dutch Grand Prix in 1954, 1956 or 1957, but 1955 saw the first true Formula One race as part of the Drivers’ Championship. The Dutch Grand Prix returned in 1958 and remained a permanent fixture on the F1 calendar (with the exception of 1972) until 1985, when it was held for the last time.

The SIM Version :

This track is based on the later scratch built 2.5 version that was initially made for rFactor by GPC team, it was created to give a smoother track to drive, its now been updated further to put into GSC2013, I have also put the work into rfactor, GTR2 and GTL. While I was enhancing it I made and added quite a lot of extras to add. plus enhanced the grass sections, updated barriers, added the odd barrier supports repaired the old grand stand, added flags, GTR2 and GTL start and pit lights and a few animated marshals added.

Although this is only a representation of a 75 version, bearing in mind there is not much footage found of the track in that period…and at some points a bit of artistic licence was used .e.g. retaining the pit building I dont think the cars would drive out of garages. I added some objects I saw in the footage I could find like the white hay bags behind the pits and if anyone knows what the blue arch is and looks like I see it in the backgound of videos. but anyone has photos I could remake it. the Aiw has been redone for this GTR2 version of the track and will probably not work as expected if used on another version.

Cheers,
Ken
