Like Silverstone, Zandvoort opened in 1948 as half of the wave of enthusiasm for post-war motorsports that swept by means of Europe. The Dutch Motor Racing Membership – which began the plans for the circuit – introduced in Sammy Davis, winner of Le Mans in 1927, to advise on the design of the unique 4.2 km monitor.

Components 1 hit the Dutch dunes in 1952, with Alberto Ascari dominating the race by main a 1-2-3 for Ferrari. The Components 1 would proceed to run intermittently on this monitor till 1985. However in 2019, it could be introduced, that the championship would return to Zandvoort in 2020, after an absence of 35 years however the Covid-19 pandemic made that grow to be 36 years and run in 2021.
The Zandvoort monitor flows by means of the sand dunes, making a curler coaster really feel on the lap, it should stay an acceptable and difficult monitor for the drivers.
