The HARC offers about 5 times a year the possibility to race on track days at reduced rates. There is no racing, everyone is free to test, train or gain track experience. These are also ideal days to get acquainted and as preparation for those who have the plan to race. It also offers the non-racing members of the HARC the opportunity to ride on the circuit. All in all, popular days with many riders who have a great atmosphere and respect for each other, it is pure enjoyment.

And certainly now with the adjustments that have been made for F1. Get to know the circuit again. You can do it with us, just do it.

Preparation

Participation does not require a racing license, but a valid driver's license is required. At the beginning of the day the car will be inspected in the field of safety, a subject that is very important to the HARC. When registering, a form will be handed over containing the points of attention for the inspection. The form can also be downloaded in advance: click HERE.

A street car is not subject to the same requirements as a racing car, depending on the class in which it is driven, the car is checked with the aim of keeping it as safe and therefore as enjoyable as possible for everyone.

The cars from Group 1:

It is recommended not to leave loose items in the car on the hat shelf or back seat. Provide a slightly higher tire pressure (+ 0.3 atm.), an oil level that has been checked and is at its maximum and well functioning shock absorbers. Also check for oil and coolant leaks.

Classification

The participants are divided into 4 groups.

Group 1: Ordinary modern street cars, historic cars (without roll cage and other track adaptations)

Group 2: Non-licensees with racing cars (roll cage and fire extinguisher compulsory)

Group 3: Licensees with racing cars

Group 4: Monopostos and "Dark forrests" (such as Lotus 7, Caterham and Westfield

Security

Tenders must be accompanied by a declaration of indemnity and acknowledgement of the flag signals.

Before the start a briefing will be held in which the rules of the game will be explained again, everyone is obliged to be present.

Wearing racing clothes is strongly recommended for group 2. For group 3 and 4 racing gear is mandatory, as well as the wearing of an armrestraint, with the exception of the monopostos.

Wearing an approved helmet is of course mandatory for all groups.

Noise protocol

Noise is an important factor on the circuit, agreements have been made about this with the municipality and province.

In this context, a limit of 88 db applies to cars in Group 1 and a maximum of 92 db applies to cars in Groups 2-3-4. This will be checked. In case of exceeding this limit, one warning will be given and in case of a subsequent offence, the driver will be excluded from further participation.

Instruction

For novice drivers there is a possibility to be instructed by an experienced driver appointed by the HARC, but this must be indicated at registration. There are also always racing HARC members present who are happy to give tips.

Registration

HARC members have priority when registering for the Leisure Days, up to 10 days before the event. Registration takes place via the website, in order of entry. HARC members are only eligible for a discount if the membership fee has been paid. Given the growing interest, it is not recommended to wait with registration until the day before the event or on the day itself.  In the past this led to unnecessarily long queues, which compromised the inspection of the car and other preparations.

If payment has also been made in advance, you only need to show your valid driver's license at the registration desk, or a valid group 3 license, sign the disclaimer and receive the safety inspection form, which you take with you to the inspection.

Without this form the car will not be inspected. The form can also be downloaded in advance: click HERE.

HARC's friends

Sinds 1996 organiseren wij grootschalige, thematisch ingestelde auto-evenementen. Inmiddels zijn er dat zo’n twintig per jaar, waarvan ongeveer de helft zich afspeelt op de circuits in Zandvoort en Assen, aangevuld met indoor en andere locaties. Het concept houdt in dat wij petrolheads bij elkaar brengen en de eigenaren van bijzondere auto’s op een voetstuk plaatsen. Qua planning kunnen we flexibel schakelen, zeker doordat we met onze database een doelgroep van 150.000 mensen bereiken.”

Vanwege de drukke evenementenkalender kom ik zelf niet aan racen toe, maar ik heb een voorliefde voor klassieke auto’s en veel respect voor mensen die er de competitie mee aangaan. Samen met de HARC organiseren wij de Historic Zandvoort Trophy, waarbij we elkaar qua invulling van het weekend versterken. Deze club voorziet al tientallen jaren in een behoefte, dat bewijst het hoge ledental wel.
Enerzijds ontwikkelen wij applicaties voor bedrijfsspecifieke processen, anderzijds richten we ons op business intelligence-oplossingen, die gegevens verzamelen uit de diverse softwarepakketten bij de klant in het systeem. Door deze bronnen aan elkaar te koppelen verkrijg je heel snel waardevolle informatie. Op basis daarvan kan de onderneming haar processen optimaliseren. Tot de klantenkring behoren veel farmaceutische bedrijven en financieel dienstverleners.”

“Feitelijk kwam ik via de software in contact met de HARC, die een nieuw systeem van ons gaat testen voor het organiseren van evenementen, dat QControl heet. De autogekte zit er bij mij al in sinds ik als jongetje in de Alfa Romeo-garage van mijn opa rondliep. Ik bezit nu zelf een collectie youngtimers en wil zeker mijn racelicentie behalen. NK 82-90 met een BMW E30, dat lijkt me wel wat.
