Race fans will get their first chance to see a Superleague Formula machine at Zolder this weekend, when the circuit celebrates its 45th anniversary.
While three participating SF clubs are closely located (RSC Anderlecht, PSV Eindhoven and Borussia Dortmund), PSV is actually the nearest club, located only 60km from the circuit despite the fact that RSC Anderlecht and Zolder are both Belgian!
With PSV Eindhoven’s showcar on site, fans will have the chance to get up close to the SF machine at a circuit which hosted the Belgian Grand Prix on 10 occasions in the 1970s and 80s, and which will now be staging Round Three of the inaugural Superleague Formula championship on October 4-5.
“We’re very happy to have Superleague Formula with us in October,” says Zolder Marketing Manger, Walter Goosens. “In our 45th year of existence, it is great to have this brand new championship on our track.
“The new approach of racing and football is quite teasing, and promises a thrilling event. Since Anderlecht will be our ‘home club’, we’re looking forward to seeing their team perform, but we’re close to Eindhoven as well, so their fans are more than welcome.
“We can even expect Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan and Galatasaray fans in October. Dortmund is only two hours drive, and there are huge Italian and Turkish communities living in our province.”
