Description
After the opening in 1948, the circuit was the home of multiple Formula 1 Grand Prix races. The sixties were the combativeness of the famous drivers Graham Hill, Jim Clark, and Jackie Stewart. They all won at least one of the races. Wolfgang von Trips and Jack Brabham also triumphed at the circuit of Zandvoort. In the seventies the circuit experienced a underwhelming period, with deadly accidents of Piers Courage in 1970 and Roger Williamson in 1973. Amongst the race winners were Niki Lauda , James Hunt, Mario Andretti and Alan Jones. 1985 saw the last Formula 1 Grand Prix, and it was again Niki Lauda that won the race in what turned out to be his last Formula 1 win.

The circuit subsequently went through a rough phase, until the Masters proved to be a very popular event, spawning lots of drivers that ended up in Formula 1 such as David Coultthard, Pedro Lamy, Enrique Bernoldi, and Jos Verstappen. More recent examples are Takumo Sato, Christian Klien, and Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton. Today, the track is popular amongst both teams and racing drivers. The friendly, incomparable Zandvoort hospitality and the unique atmosphere make Zandvoort a much sought-after track for international race series. It wasn’t long until ADAC GT Masters, FIA GT3 European Championship, FIA European Formula 3 Championship en Blancpain Sprint Series, came to Zandvoort.

When we started racing on a computer long ago it was with Codemasters DTM Racedriver 3 and the track we drove a lot on was Zandvoort. Some years later somebody made a conversion from Codemasters to rFactor, and since we are still using rFactor, from all the tracks we ever drove on in a simulator, this original Codemasters Zandvoort track is the one we drove on most.

So when the Studio 397 rFactor2 version 0.10 was released, we were very happy to discover this was very decent looking and very good to drive on. This 0.34 version even looks better, and gives me really the feeling I'm driving on the real track. After version 0.10 I thought it would be nice to also have the short layout, and now we have every possible layout. The only thing which would be nice to add is a DRS zone.

Leaves me with the question, why is this called version 0.34? It suggests a lot has to be done before releasing a 1.0 version. I'm interested to know what this is going to be ....

Has the update that was mentioned at the Expo been released yet, or is this still the old one?

This track was looking a bit dark to me. It looked like on a cloudy rainy day, no mather what the weather settings in rF2 were. With the new lightning in rF2, this track looks very bright with great contrast, when setting the weather in rF2 to a sunny day. But it still looks bright with a lot of contrast on a cloudy rainy day.
This is not the only track which looks bright on a rainy day, all the tracks I've tested with different weather have the same. Maybe I am asking too much from the lighting in rF2. I should suspect the lightning making a track bright on a sunny day and dark on a rainy day, but I don't see this in rF2.
With the new lighting this Zandvoort track looks much better to me than before. I must admit, this is the track I drive most on. The only things I'm missing are a DRS zone and the short lay-out.
