Paasraces Zandvoort: An Eastern race weekend

During an eastern weekend you can choose to relax and take a break, however you could also choose to visit the Zandvoort Paasraces for some action packed racing in the dunes. During the eastern races the circuit is filled with exciting race classes like the Dutch Supercar Challenge.

The Dutch Supercar Challenge has a very diversified field of participants from the SuperGT to the Supersport division with lots of BMW M3’s, Lotus and Seat Supercopa’s.

Zandvoort is notorious for changing weather conditions, as the Supersport division encountered light showers just before the start, making the tire choice very difficult, creating a very spectacular race which will be shown in our next article. TrackandTuner.com was positioned right in the first and famous Tarzan corner to see how the drivers handled these tricky conditions.

The SuperGT division was the highlight of the day with cars like a Volvo powered V8, Ferrari 458 GT2, the first delivered European Dodge Viper GT3-R and many more. Unfortunately the noise restrictions on Zandvoort are very strict, meaning the teams needed to install some rigorous exhaust mufflers. However these cars still sound great and are worth taking a look as the field runs down the main straight when the Switzer tuned Nissan GTR P800 leaves into the paddock.  With strong competition of the Audi ABT R8 LMS, the MartinoRosso team had a great race leaving Zandvoort with a third and first position, more on this in a later article.
