~ We don't just see a lot of very special cars during the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort, but some famous Dutch drivers as well.
What about two-times Indy 500 winner Arie Luyendijk, WTCC star Tom Coronel and former Formula 1 driver Robert Doornbos? And then there is Adrian van Hooydonk, chief designer of BMW, who will drive one of the Bavarian cars.
Meet them during the second edition of the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort from 30 August to 1 September!
It will be the first time in sixteen years Luyendijk is racing at the Circuit Park Zandvoort. He takes place behind the wheel of a Bizzarrini 5300 GT and competes
in the NK Historical Touring Cars and GT's. “I'm looking forward to drive this beautiful car at the dune circuit,” Luyendijk says. “It has quite been a while since my last
appearance in Zandvoort. It was in 1997 at the so-called Marlboro Masters.
I did a demo in the car which I drove to victory in Indianapolis not long before.”
was still in use, but the track has been modernized since. Moreover, Luyendijk never rounded his own Arie Luyendijk Corner. Luyendijk knows 'Bos Uit' by heart and this corner was named after him in 2001. Not new to Luyendijk is the historic discipline of motorsport. “Occasionally, I drive in the United States with historic Grand Prix cars. The last race was in 2012, when I drove a Formula 1 car from McLaren that took part in the 1980 US Grand Prix in Austin.”
He was on course for victory together with David Hart last year during one of
the races for Gentlemen Drivers, but they had to settle for second place because
of technical glitches. This year Tom is back in action.
Lagaay also worked for Porsche.
Just like last year former winners Gijs van Lennep and Jan Lammers join the party.
Jurgen Barth also comes to Zandvoort. Barth won the race in 1977 and drives a
Porsche 904 during the race of the Gentlemen Drivers.
