RACING COURSE

In 1955 the legendary Rob Slotemaker his racing school on the Zandvoort circuit. From this became Racing school Zandvoort born. A powerful training where you only really learn to drive a car at speed under difficult (sometimes winter) conditions! RSZ's extensive training material formed the basis for a KNAF recognized racing training course. Many thousands of students, including Jan Lammers, Tom Coronel, Jaap van Lagen, Beitske Visser and Job van Uitert, obtained their racing license at RSZ. Now, 65 years later, Slotemaker's famous course is still the number 1 racing school in the Netherlands. Will you also start this unforgettable life experience at RSZ?

STRUCTURE

  • UNDER & OVERSTEERING
    The basis is car control. That's why we spend a lot of time practicing understeer and oversteer.
    First at low speed around a large circle, then at higher speed on the chase drift track.
  • BRAKE TECHNIQUE
    Brakes! To go fast you also have to learn to brake optimally.
    We do this during a braking test where we teach you to brake against blocking or against ABS for maximum deceleration
  • SLALOM
    During the slalom everything comes together: hitting the limit against oversteer and understeer, looking far ahead, riding ideal lines.
    And your time will not stand still until you have come to a complete stop by braking at the right moment! Will you win a legendary RSZ Glass?
  • THE IDEAL LINE
    Once the paddock drills are done and we've worked on the basics, we'll hit the track!
    First get to know the track and drive as many laps as possible with 1 (instructor) on 3 (students) guidance. Outside, inside, outside.
  • SLIPS STREAM & CATCH UP
    Learning to race also includes learning to slipstream and overtake. To overtake, you must use your competitor's or fellow student's slipstream.
    Dive out of the slipstream late and brake later than the other. That way we teach you the best techniques for overtaking.
  • DRIVING FORMATION
    Driving close to each other, mirror to mirror, door handle to door handle. Those are the best fights.
    To make you feel a little more comfortable with this, we do the formation riding. Just a few laps with all students 3 wide across the circuit.
  • SPRINTS
    Who's out first? Accelerate in 1 or 2, how many revolutions do you have to make to get away optimally, much or little wheelspin?
    You learn that during the test starts that we do during the sprints.
  • AND EXCITING PRACTICE MATCHES!
    The Ultimate End: Your First Race! Everything we discussed during the course is included here.
    You can use your knowledge about the rules and flags, but especially your start and overtaking technique. Your first race, something you will never forget!

MARK THE BLACK

IN 2 FULL DAYS I LEARNED ALL THE TICKETS OF RACING. NOT ONLY THE TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE AND THEORY, BUT ALSO THE TRAINING FOR DRIVING KILLS WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE. THE RACING LICENSE COMPLETES IT.”

TOM BAKER

FINALLY REAL LEARNING THANKS TO THE PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE OF THE INSTRUCTORS OF RSZ. ALL TIPS HAVE HELPED TO EXPERIENCE AND APPLY BETTER OPERATION TO THE CIRCUIT, ONLY FOR THIS YOU SHOULD DO THIS COURSE: WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!”

HOW DO I GET MY RACING LICENSE?

The page below describes exactly which licenses are available and how you can get them: KNAF RACING LICENSE

CAN I GET MY EU LICENSE IMMEDIATELY?

Which can! But then you have to follow a 3 day course. This is the requirement of the KNAF. You can choose a 3-day course or choose a 2-day course and complete it with a “RACING COURSE UPGRADE"

CAN I ALSO RENT A HELMET?

Yes, you can. Renting the helmet for the course is €10. Please indicate this in advance when you register.

DO I ALSO HAVE TO TAKE THE EXAM?

You can, but you shouldn't! If you want to get your KNAF Race license, both the theory and the practical exam are mandatory.

SHOULD I FOLLOW ALL PARTS?

All components must be followed to meet the requirements of the KNAF to obtain your KNAF Race License.

WHICH IS BETTER: FRONT OR REAR DRIVE?

Front or rear-wheel drive is a personal choice. With both types of cars you can learn how to race a car. A rear-wheel drive car is more suitable for learning to drift.

I'M GOING TO RACE ABROAD, WHAT LICENCE DO I NEED?

The rules regarding licenses abroad can be quite different from those in the Netherlands. It is likely that you will need at least an EU license. Contact the KNAF to inquire about this.

HOW OLD DO YOU NEED TO BE TO DO THE RACE COURSE?

From the age of 14 you can participate in the racing course. We want you to be able to shift gears and drive a car reasonably well. A driver's license is therefore not necessary.

CAN I DO THE RACE COURSE WITH SOMEONE ELSE IN ONE CAR?

That is not possible, because the KNAF prescribes a number of exercises and a certain job experience for obtaining your license. If you would share a car, you would not meet the prescribed driving time.

CAN I TAKE THE COURSE MORE OFTEN?

Absolute! You learn something from every course. It used to be very common that you took part in the course every winter to stay at your level. But you can of course also look at one of our other courses such as the Drift course or Race course Upgrade.

CAN I RACE IMMEDIATELY?

If you have followed the racing course and have passed your practical and theory exam, you can apply for your KNAF Race License and participate in Club races.

DOES THE COURSE CAR HAVE TO BE COMPLETELY RACE READY AND HAVE A ROLL CAGE FOR EXAMPLE?

There are currently no specific requirements for a course car. The car must of course be safe, there must be at least two seats (for student and instructor) and it must be as quiet as possible.

DO I HAVE TO WEAR RACING GEAR DURING THE COURSE?

Special racing clothing is not (yet) required at this time. If you do have this equipment, put it on, so be safe. Wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing in layers (to account for temperatures) and thin-soled shoes.
