“Everything is on schedule” – Zandvoort GP set to be Netherlands’ biggest sporting spectacle, Dutch Grand Prix sporting director Jan Lammers announces.
The Dutch Grand Prix was last held in 1985, where Niki Lauda won it for McLaren. It was set to return last season after a long gap, but the pandemic ruined the plans. This season, though, it has successfully made it to the calendar yet again and looks set to see the light of day in the first week of September.

Dutch Grand Prix sporting director Jan Lammers confirmed they will try to accommodate all the ticket-holders. Fans planning to attend will get a clearer picture on August 13, when the Dutch government will provide clarity on the attendance for the race weekend. He also termed the GP “the biggest sporting event in the history of the Netherlands.”
“We have no choice. We’re going to be all set. We can’t say ‘we need more seats’ on August 25. We have a duty to welcome all people with a ticket and we are working on that now.
“It is now about implementing the plans that were developed a long time ago. About 70 percent of the stands are now standing. Everything is on schedule.
“We are convinced that the figures on the coronavirus are moving in the right direction. If this continues, we think that all sporting events can simply resume. Sometimes I think I’m in Indianapolis with all those stands.
“Before there is even one person in those stands, I realise that we are all involved in the biggest sporting event in the history of the Netherlands. And that’s very special.”
