Zandvoort release first images of completed banking

The Zandvoort tarmac has been laid, the circuit is ready and Formula 1 will make a return to the Dutch track on May 3 for the first time since 1985.

To complete the banked sections of the track, Zandvoort worked with Italian track design company Dromo Circuit Design and Geobrugg,who installed the FIA-homologated catch fencing.

“We did something that we thought would be really formidable to drive, that has no equal at any other racetracks,” said Dromo founder, Jarno Zaffelli. “Turn 14 is quite ample and wide, making it full throttle, whereas the transition between Turn 2 and Turn 3 has a lot of elevation and banking changes. - “All of your horizon is tilting, all of your perception is evolving, you feel like you are being squeezed. It’s like being in a corkscrew, depending on the line that you are following.”

The fencing, as per regulations, sits at a ninety degree angle to the track surface to prevent the track from becoming a ramp. Leaning into the track, the fencing is tethered in place.

With discussions continuing over the initial races of the year and the potential disruption to the calendar due to the coronavirus outbreak, Zandvoort have celebrated the track surface being completed by releasing a video of the lap.
