WSS GT3 Europe – Round 4 – Zandvoort Briefing

Welcome to Circuit Zandvoort, the venue for Round 4 of the WSS Europe GT3 Championship Powered by NRT Game Servers.  Michal Nizio took the chequered flag at Watkins Glen after qualifying P5. Nizio extends his lead in the Championship by 19 points over Harris Muhammad. Team HME Amsterdam lead the Team Championship after a great team effort at the Glen.

Zandvoort gained popularity because of its fast, sweeping corners such as Scheivlak as well as the “Tarzanbocht” (Tarzan corner) hairpin at the end of the start/finish straight. Tarzanbocht is the most famous corner in the circuit. Since there is a camber in the corner, it provides excellent overtaking opportunities. It is possible to pass around the outside as well as the easier inside lane. This corner is reportedly named after a local character who had earned the nickname of Tarzan and only wanted to give up his vegetable garden in the dunes if the track’s designers named a nearby corner after him.
