The Tarzan Corner may be the most famous corner at Zandvoort. The corner where all drivers talk about is the Scheivlak. The sprint over the Hunzerug, full throttle upwards trough the Rob Slotemaker Corner, the short braking at the top of the dune and than at high speed trough the Scheivlak with its elevations. That all makes this section to one of the most beautiful sections of a race track in the world!
The origination of the Marlboro Corner
The Marlboro Corner was the chicane who reduced speed since 1980 at the then controversial fast section on the back of the circuit. Original there was a fast combination of a left and a right kink called the "Hondenvlak". The chicane was constructed between both kinks and they also straighten the kinks a little. Since 1989 this part of the circuit has never been used again.
Today most corner names on circuits are named after sponsors or they are simply numbered. In the old days of motor racing, corners had original names. On this page we will explain how the corners at old Zandvoort came to their names.
The layout of the Zandvoort circuit has been changed several times. First for safety reasons, later because the construction of a vacation resort on a part of the circuit site. This page will show you how the layout of Zandvoort was made slower and how it lost half of the original layout.
