I hope Zandvoort will become a track that's included in the annual lineup of F1 tracks and that the enviromentalists dont mess up things as usual with their neverending lawsuits...

I have less connection with GP's held in the middle east or china or russia for instance. I understand that those GP's generate a lot of money, but in my eyes they're just not iconic.
I'd rather have the Hockenheimring back.

(even though both Baku and Singapore are street circuits, and I really like races held on street circuits....but as we've seen this year... there was even talk of to do away with Monaco...(talk about iconic GP's))

Both my Uncles flew P47s in the pacific. Right Col. Glen went on to fly B47s and B52s. Col. John retired after the war.

Edit: Uncle John flew photo recon over Hiroshima after the bomb was dropped

Aha! We are both old enough to have enjoyed "Baa Baa Black Sheep" on the TV

Love P47s followed by Corsairs, Lightenings & Mustangs.

I believe it's the only working Tiger 1 working in the world and Poland has one or two working King Tigers.

My friend . The English word for "Kombocht" is "Banked Corners" => https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/a...35ZOIWR2F.html
MAX ran already at Zandvoort and loves everything about it !
The video shows his first lap and how he pulls over the Zandvoort's Banked Corners .
As you can see : MAX is ready for it !

Yeah the scene in the 'Fury movie from 1 German Tiger tank vs 4 US Sherman's was very violent !

Decisive but perplexing scene from the film in that Wardaddy was on open turret directing the 76mm and the Tiger was firing blindly not turning to face the Sherman from the front aimer or with the tank commander looking from top of turret (not that I would want that to happen but in a real situation this would seem more plausible.

Actually the whole Zandvoort circuit is amazing .

But the North Sea is very near ,so I really wonder what about the wind ?

EDIT : And the new asphalt layer in the wet can be very tricky as well...

Even a later 109 was not a match for the heavier P-47 with it's eight .50 MG's with spread fire and one by one they were literally shot out of the sky.
