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.
