Event report Historic Grand Prix with Tudor Watches

Last weekend we went to the Historic Grand Prix in Zandvoort which is located on the coast of Holland. This event is a trip down memory lane in the history of automotive sports. Pretty much cars from all generations are featured. Tudor, being official timekeeper and one of the sponsors, invited us to join them for this event at the circuit.

Historic Gand Prix in Zandvoort

The Historic Grand Prix in Zandvoort has built up quite a reputation in it’s existence. Attracting more and more classes and drivers participating for the editions. Spread out over three days there is a lot of historic motor racing to enjoy. The Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort offers many  thrilling races in a variety of leagues. One of the things that makes it so much fun is the fact that is really accessible to the public so you can have a close look at all the cars.

Sadly there was a serious crash on the saturday morning. One of the old race cars got off the track at the fastest corner just before the long straight the March 701 from 1970 lost control and ended up in pieces on the tarmac. Help was there quickly and the driver was rushed to the hospital for recovery. This left the track in total silence for about 2 hours after which the program was slowly started again.

Although we didn’t see much of the races during the day it was a pleasure to walk around in-between all the stands with the race cars. At the hospitality stand we enjoyed some drinks and food with many of the other guests.  As every year there was a selection of Tudor watches on display.

For those whose heart steps up a few beats from the smell of burning rubber and old racing cars this sure is an event to attend! It was a pleasure to be part of it again and thank Tudor Watches for the invite.

    Whoever got the bright idea of using David Beckham to endorse the Tudor brand should get the elbow. No doubt they thought it was bringing youth and vitality …however, most colleagues I have spoken to think the adverts look grubby and very down market.
