Circuit Zandvoort start renovations: This is all going to change

12 January - 18:00


For the 2024 and 2025 seasons, Circuit Zandvoort has a contract with Formula 1. For the period after that, it is uncertain whether F1 will return to the track in the Netherlands. In any case, the owners of Circuit Zandvoort are doing everything possible to keep the Dutch Grand Prix on the calendar, including a thorough renovation. This will keep the circuit completely up-to-date for Formula 1. The renovation started this week.

The most notable development is the extension of the pit lane and the increase in the number of pit boxes, which not only meet the FIA's demanding quality standards but also make the circuit more versatile. Thanks to the modifications, they will soon also be able to use the building in which the pitboxes are located for events outside racing.

During the Dutch Grand Prix, the six modern, new pit boxes will serve as places where the teams tinker with the F1 cars; outside, they can serve for congresses, seminars and company parties with a capacity of up to 650 people. In doing so, Circuit Zandvoort is creating a new source of income. Not only is the pit lane a work in progress but the restaurant Bernie's Bar & Kitchen is also undergoing a thorough renovation.

Completion is in April 2024

Construction and renovation have already started and the completion date is scheduled for April 2024. "This ambitious project not only meets the FIA's stringent requirements for the Dutch Grand Prix, but also reinforces the future of Circuit Zandvoort as a versatile, state-of-the-art event venue," states a spokesperson for the circuit.
