The PURE ETCR series will visit the Zolder Circuit in central Belgium for the second round of its inaugural season from July 2-4 and here at Green Racing News we will tell you much more about this legendary track.
The four-kilometer circuit is one of the most popular in Europe, having been the scene of virtually every type of motor racing since its inception. Following its opening in 1963, the track has changed little as three fast chicanes were added in subsequent years.

The motorsport event that has stood out the most in Zolder was the Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix, which was held between 1973 and 1982. It has also been Moto GP races, Formula 2 European Championship, Masters of Formula 3, WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Championship, DTM and FIA European Truck Racing Championship.
In non-motorized sports, Zolder has also hosted several world cycling events, including the UCI World Cyclocross, Road Racing and BMX Championships.
Being a very popular test site for touring car teams, Circuit Zolder surely has many more races ahead of it as it approaches its 60th birthday.
