Beachfront Racing At Zandvoort (a.k.a Sandvoort)

A crisp ocean breeze, two-lane beach board walk and 100 yards inland from this coast line was… A race circuit? Now visualize 45,000 spectators relaxing on the sandy embankments while listening to 38 Porsche GT3 Cup cars roar down the main straight and you’d find yourself in Zandvoort, Netherlands.

During my stay in Europe so far this year, there was never a location that had felt so similar to my hometown back in California. As funny as it seems, it actually felt like a ‘home race’ in a way, especially with the surprise visit from some neighbors back home. Coming into this race weekend, my expectation levels were very high after a promising test day just a few weeks beforehand and I felt it was time to finally climb onto the podium.
