Zandwoort needs to be back on the f1 calendar
quiet day at the office for max, his father looks like he'll probably need fresh underwear
quite surprised at the level of discomfort from Jos. I mean come on, i have much respect for Jos as a F1 driver,
but it's like he's never raced fast the amount of scare he ventilates. Seems like he doesn't hold much trust.
And telling your son you'll hit him? come on Jos, you've got enough violence in your history.
Max keeps impressing me. Really like the guy. Can't wait to see him next month @ Zandvoort.
i thought that for years, but not anymore.
Perhaps the new V6 engine has lowered engine volume enough so that now it might be possible to race there, but the sound environmentalist squads here managed to prevent F1 racing here due to the amount of 'sound pollution' it causes for neighbouring residents. Extremely rediculous and sad, but that's the way it is.
apart from that, Zandvoort isn't ready to host a proper F1 gp. The circuit is cool and fun, but for F1 standards it's just no longer up to date. Not to mention logistics locally and logistics in getting there. The roads leading to Zandvoort are crowded and there isn't a single proper freeway nearby, it's all crowded roads and would provide a nightmare for traffic.
And then we haven't even discussed the traffic generated by the visitors.
Not the least then is economics. Dutch economics aren't at their best and the dutch are very critical on government spending. Knowing the money Bernie asks for hosting a F1 gp, there is simply no way there can be generated enough money to do it without government backing. People would fume on the amount of money involved.
As much as i like Zandvoort - i've raced there myself a couple of times -, it's simply out of the question for a real F1 possibility.
Offcourse depending where one resides, Belgium (SPA) is just a few hours drive away from Zandvoort, and Germany [if hosted again] more or less the same. Hell, you could even take the ferry and go for Silverstone.
I've lost my hopes on zandvoort F1 because it's simply not reasonable. Shows @ zandvoort will suffice. the A1GP races there were great.Perhaps a GPE-race can be held there, but that's hardly spectacular.
