Gran Turismo Zandvoort kicks off on April 15

It’s one of the most least known, yet most storied race tracks in the world. Why it doesn’t get enough press is completely beyond us. But fortunately, the people over at Gran Turismo Events decided that the Circuit Zandvoort race track in Amsterdam would be the perfect site for their next event, the Gran Turismo Zandvoort.

The event, which is scheduled for April 15th and 16th, 2011, will host over 50 teams featuring some of the fastest and most powerful supercars on the planet. If you fancy Audi R8 GTs , Ferrari 458 Italias , or Porsche Carrera GT s get their motoring faces on, the Gran Turismo Zandvoort is the perfect way to satisfy that craving. There are even rumors that Lamborghini’s new supercar, the Aventador LP700-4 , will also be in attendance. As with all of the Gran Turismo Events gatherings, Gran Turismo Zandvoort is expected to be one for the books and truth be told, it couldn’t have happened at a more fitting race track.

The Circuit Zandvoort is located around 30 minutes away from Amsterdam and holds a special place in the hearts of racing drivers from all over the world. The track, while not as mainstream as other circuits, is still regarded as one of the five best race tracks in the world, together with the Nurburgring , Spa-Francorchamps , Laguna Seca , and Le Mans .

The Gran Turismo Zandvoort is a good way for neophytes to get to know the famous racetrack first-hand. As for those who have already gotten a taste of the circuit, the event becomes a good way for these people to rub elbows with their fellow supercar-owning brethren, share some stories of their expensive cars, and leave all of us drooling with envy in the process.

Well, I have a feeling that the race would not be that easy!hmm. It seems that they are joining the best production! Too bad I have missed this event last year.

hmm. It seems that the car that will be joining the race seems to be powerful! I was expecting that all the cars from the popular game GT5 can be seen here.

The most powerful car in the auto industry can be found here! And It’s too bad that I have missed this event! I’m hope I could watch it next year! BTW, I agree that the photo was shot perfectly!

From all that you have said, I am really expecting the event to be an exciting one. I am looking forward to catching at least one of the races when I get there.

Yeah, the tract at Zandvoort is actually pretty challenging. It has a lot of tight corners that will certainly test the drivers’ skills. The races here is really going to be a great event.

I think the photographer has captured the perfect picture with all the wheels elevated from the road and the car actually flying. And even you don’t find the dust and disturbance which gives it a picture perfect shot. Good work.

I think this one of the much awaited events of the year. I can’t imagine that all the supercars in the planet will be attending the said event. However, the most drooling part is the hearing the stories of those supercar owner!

I have visit Zandvoort once, and I can tell you that it is a great track. There will certainly be a lot of action once they get the events started.

I must admit that I am also not all that too familiar with the Zandvoort track. But I have already heard a lot f interesting stories about it, tn particular that it has been a popular secret track for vehicle testing.
