In our June issue we previewed the Zandvoort Grand Prix meeting (and misreported the date, for which apologies – it is to take place on 16-18 July) with much enthusiasm, looking forward to at last seeing an international historic grid on the new circuit layout.  However, in a repeat of last year’s scenario, the HSCC announced the cancellation of its Historic Formula 2 race at the meeting and, just as we go to press, the FIA has cancelled its Formula 3 European Cup race due “travel restrictions as well as the actual status of the entry.”  The FIA will refund anyone who has already paid an entry fee.

Last year the Masters, who provide the largest proportion of the content for this meeting, held its nerve and provided most of the grids they had originally announced.  Their policy is one of not letting meeting promoters down, even if it means much reduced grid sizes.  They also have many competitors coming from the continent, which (again as we go to press), is open for travel as long as one is regularly tested.  

Fortunately there are a number of home-grown and German grids only too happy to take a race slot at such a great circuit and such a prestigious event.  Promoters are not expected to have any dificulty in filling the vacant slots.
