The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup VIP race car heads towards a steep corner at Zandvoort, the line says "Feeling gravity"

8/31/2022

Round 7 in Zandvoort, the Netherlands.

Welkom op Zandvoort! For the second time in its 30-year history, the Porsche Supercup will be held at the dune circuit on the Dutch coast. In the penultimate round of the season, the first champions could be crowned – so make sure you don't miss it!

After the Ardennes roller coaster at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, the series continues not far away with Round 7, as part of the Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix. If you listen closely, maybe you can already hear the thunder of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup echoing off the dunes – in our thoughts, we're already at Zandvoort. This historic circuit was opened in 1948 and hosted a Formula 1 race for the first time four years later. After a long break and some modernization work, F1 returned to the circuit on the North Sea coast near Amsterdam with the 2021 Supercup. And this track has a lot to offer drivers with its spectacular steep corners.


Its 14 corners, for example the Arie Luyendijkbocht, have inclines of up to 18° degrees, which makes this race a special feature on the racing calendar. The circuit winds through the dune landscape just a stone's throw from the sea and offers top speed on the finishing straight. The unique location means that sand is omnipresent on the asphalt, making driving more unpredictable – especially when the North Sea wind blows.

Laurin Heinrich, winner of the Zandvoort race in 2021, cheers in the driver's seat of his race car
One driver who knows how to cope with the demanding track is current Porsche Junior #3 Laurin Heinrich (DEU/SSR Huber Racing). Taking advantage of the experience he gained here in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland, Heinrich won his first Supercup race here in 2021, closely followed by his teammate Leon Köhler. It was a great weekend for team boss Christoph Huber. There is no question that he would like to repeat this performance this year. But the local heroes from GP Elite will certainly have something to say about that, especially as every point counts with the championship still tight right down to the wire!

Zandvoort is the place to be for Dutch motorsport fans. They will give everything – just like us. It's all about the championship!

Once again, a full field of 32 cars will take to the grid at Zandvoort. Sebastian Freymuth (DEU) will drive the #4 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup for SSR Huber Racing, and Belgian Ghislain Cordeel will be in #13 for CLRT for the second time this season. In addition, there are four guest drivers: #33 Huub van Eijndhoven (NLD) for GP Elite, and the Swedish team Fragus Motorsport has three cars on the North Sea coast, with #31 driven by Lukas Sundahl – four-time Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia Champion. We are curious to see how he does against the strong international competition, where five drivers still have hopes of winning the championship title: the three BWT Lechner Racing drivers #5 Dylan Pereira (LUX), #6 Harry King (GBR) and #7 Bastian Buus (DNK), the reigning Supercup Champion #25 Larry ten Voorde (NLD/Team GP Elite) and Porsche Junior #3 Laurin Heinrich will fight for every fraction of a second!
