Track walk around Circuit Zolder - Grand Prix on

Circuit Zolder

Although today’s circuit was built in 1963, motor racing in the area dates to the 1950s when the local Zolder motor club organized races around the town square. The short Omloop van Terlaemen was built in 1961 and two years later (under the direction of noted race track designer Hans Hugenholz) was expanded to the basic layout of today’s 2.492 mile (4.011 km) Circuit Zolder. Although the original circuit’s succession of hair-raising sweeps and long straightaways has been modified for safety purposes, Circuit Zolder remains a fast and challenging track that nearly encircles a canal at one end and a forested motorhome park on the other!
