Holland's most well-known circuit, Circuit Park Zandvoort dates from the 1930s. The first ever international race event in Holland was held on a street circuit in Zandvoort in 1939 and this led the Mayor of Zandvoort to call for a permanent circuit to be located in the dunes north of the town.
Due to World War II the first race on the circuit was held in 1949. Dutch home of DTM, 12 Hours of Zandvoort and the Historic Grand Prix, the circuit previously held many F1 races featuring the likes of Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart and Jim Clark and helped more modern F3 drivers progress into F1 including David Coulthard and Lewis Hamilton.
