A lap at the Zandvoort street circuit
We start our tour at the old Start/Finish straight at the Van Lennepweg.
Original here was a right kink but now there's a roundabout!
We turn right into the Nicolaas Beetslaan.
Trough the kink.
The cars didn't drove at this part of the street but on the right hand side, where now the sidewalk and the gardens are (see picture below).
At the end we turn right into the Vondellaan.
Accelerate to the intersection.
The intersection Van Lennepweg/Vondellaan.
We turn left at the Van Lennepweg, where the Start/Finish is, but now in the opposite direction!
This was the longest straight of the track.
Here we have to brake for a long right hander.
And another straight, a little bit shorter than the previous one.
In fact this street was not a part of the track. Original the street was a little bit more on the left hand side and was called the Dr. John Metzgerstraat.
We turn right into the Vondellaan. In front you see the building of the "Slotemaker Anti Slip school".
At the begin of the Vondellaan we see on the left hand the entrance to the parking of the current permanent circuit!
Here was the old part of the Vondellaan, now a bungalow park.
This road inside the park follows the lost part of the Vondellaan.
Here was a left corner where the gravel path is now.
The exit of the bungalow park.
After the interruption of the bungalow park we continue at the remaining part of the Vondellaan.
At the intersection we turn left. Do you recognize this site? We have been here before this lap. But than we came from the opposite direction!
The last corner...
And than we're back at Start/Finish.
