Zolder to welcome Superleague

Race fans at Zolder will get their first chance to see see a Superleague Formula machine this weekend when the former home of the Belgian Grand Prix celebrates its 45th anniversary.

The circuit hosted the Belgian Grand Prix on 10 occasions in the 1970s and 80s and is set to become a popular location for football fans for round three of the inaugural Superleague Formula championship on October 4-5.

Three Superleague Formula clubs are located within 200 km of the circuit - RSC Anderlecht in Brussels, PSV Eindhoven and Borussia Dortmund.

Despite the fact that RSC Anderlecht and Zolder are both Belgian - Netherlands neighbours PSV Eindhoven is actually the nearest club, located only 60km from the circuit.

The PSV showcar will be on site at Zolder this weekend at the 45th Anniversary event.

"We’re very happy to have Superleague Formula with us in October. In our 45th year of existence, it is great to have this brand new championship on our track," Zolder Marketing Manger, Walter Goosens said.

"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 2 hours drive, and there are huge Italian and Turkish communities living in our province."
