Zandvoort confirmed as the home for the Dutch Grand Prix

Circuit Park Zandvoort has been officially unveiled as the location for the return of the Dutch Grand Prix. There hasn’t been a Dutch Grand Prix since 1985 which was won by Austrian Niki Lauda.

At a press conference at the site itself, Chase Carey, the executive chairman of the Formula One group and race organisers confirmed the race which will return to the circuit in May 2020. The track in the north of Europe is set to be the first race in Europe on the calendar for 2020 and will be sponsored by Heineken, becoming the fourth race to be sponsored by the brewing company.

Zandvoort has a capacity of 66,000 but it is expected to be increased for the event to accommodate around 100,000 people. There is plenty of interest in Formula 1 in the Netherlands with the rapid rise of Max Verstappen and the fans will get to see their driver contesting a World Championship on home soil.
