Yes, I read that. Is it the corner named ‘Arie Luyendijk bocht’?

It should be, after all he won the 500 twice and he holds the lap record, which he set in 1996, 37.895 sec (237.498 mph; 382.182 km/h).

I am unfamiliar with the Zandvoort circuit, but I assume suspension compression should not be a concern? I am guessing the largest amount of compression they see currently is at Eau Rouge just as you climb to Raidillon?

Have they started paving over Zandvoort's sand/gravel traps yet?
Few negative camber corners too.

Here's aerial shot of the track, taken from above Scheivlak and the run of areas look like sand.

Really nice photo BJ.

I was Hoping that Mr Tilke and asphalt monkey ltd don't get a chance to ruin yet another circuit, they were also very anti reverse camber corners.

Have to wonder why the barrier is reflexed on the entry to Scheivlak, it would have been more logical to just keep it going straight through.

I found this web site belonging to KWS the company undertaking the works before the GP.

https://www.kws.nl/nl/nieuws/detail/...-volkerwessels

From the pictures it seems that the tar runoff is restricted to the end of the main straight. They will also be reconstructing the pits, a new medical centre, the paddock, widening sections of the circuit and some pedestrian underpasses.
On the whole they seem to be sticking with the gravel sand runoffs - which is a very good idea in my opinion.
