This summer I made a journey through Germany where I visited ten motorport locations! The journey started in the early morning of July 25, 2016. I leaved my hometown Heerenveen and headed towards Nürburgring.
Today March 24, 2016 I welcomed the 500th subscriber of the Circuits of the past YouTube Channel. Time to make up the balance and to look back at the history of my YouTube Channel.
It was Thursday August 6, 2015. Earlier that day I leaved Francorchamps. My vacation was almost finished, but one tiny trip on the way back home was planned. Therefore I crossed the German border near the Southern Dutch city of Roermond, on my way to Wegberg. There was in the 50's a very fast street circuit, called the Grenzlandring.
For racing fans, especially F1 enthusiasts, waiting for the new edition of the F1 gaming franchise for PlayStation and Xbox One has become somewhat of a annual ritual. While we love to write about all the forgotten circuits that have played their part in racing history over the years on Circuits of the Past, there are other ways in which we can enjoy some of these forgotten tracks.
It was Tuesday August 4, 2015 when I was underway from Wavre to Francorchamps. The weather was very bad that day and around Liege was a huge traffic jam. I was underway to a special place, the circuit of Spa-Francorchamps. Spa-Francorchamps is for many people the most beatiful circuit in the world. For me it's a place full of memories to the early 90's. The time that the world was, short after the fall of the iron curtain, naively optimistic.
