Formula 1 Dutch GP ‘possible’ at Assen track – boss

Momentum is building for The Netherlands’ return to the F1 calendar.

A month ago, we reported that Zandvoort, last seen on the calendar in 1985, was keen to return to formula one and may already be in talks.

And now, De Telegraaf newspaper claims that another potential venue for a Dutch grand prix comeback could be the TT Circuit Assen.

The track hosted Sunday’s MotoGP round, where a new contract until 2026 was announced amid plans for a EUR 60 million upgrade in the coming years.

“The question we are always asked is whether there can be a formula one grand prix held in Assen,” track boss Arjan Bos said.

“I answer that it is possible and if there is enough money to organise it, we will be there as an interested circuit,” he added.

However, he said this might be the goal for “a few years” time, as the circuit would need “some changes” to make it appropriate for F1.
