ER Classics Desktop 2022

The Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort celebrates its fifth anniversary on 2, 3 and 4 in September 2016. The racing program is a mix of the well-known public favorites and 'new' racing classes, including a class for pre-war sports cars. Appealing demos and the driver's parade through the Zandvoort center are examples of the many highlights of the three-day motorsport festival.

Formula 1 and sportscars
