Excitement grows as Zandvoort approaches!

Banbury, UK, Monday 5th August 2002: Fast and furious racing on slick tyres, with overtaking guaranteed...... that's the exciting spectacle of NDS EuroBOSS! The Series arrives at the Marlboro Masters festival, Zandvoort, this weekend (10th/11th August) for round five of Europe's fastest motor racing series.

A Packed Grid:
A full grid of 18 cars with F1, F3000 and Indy Car pedigrees will line up to contest NDS EuroBOSS, Masters and 3000 titles at Circuit Park Zandvoort. Competing marques include Ferrari, Benetton, Arrows, Footwork, Tyrrell, Minardi, Reynard, Eurobrun and Ram (see attached provisional entry list).

Local Heroes:
Tom Coronel will be racing an Ascari Judd V10 at Zandvoort, the track where he started his racing career. Tom is currently racing in the European Touring Car Championship and finished on the podium yesterday at Spa. He goes to Zandvoort brimming with confidence. Fellow Dutchman, and current Series leader, Klaas Zwart, from Warga near Leeuwarden, will be taking to the wheel of a 1995 Ferrari V12-- formerly driven by Jean Alesi-- hoping to finish on top in front of his home crowd.

A Passionate Crowd:
Spectators are expected to top the 65,000 mark and will be kept on the edge of their seats throughout the weekend with action from F3, Formula Ford, DTCC, the Renault Clio Cup and the Alfa 147 Challenge along with round five of the NDS EuroBOSS Series. The relaxed atmosphere means that it is possible to see the competing cars at close quarters, including the 1995 V12 Ferrari formerly driven by Jean Alesi, and the 1994 V8 Benetton Ford in which Michael Schumacher won his first ever F1 Drivers Championship. An autograph session with all of the NDS EuroBOSS drivers will be held on Saturday at 13:15, so meeting local challengers Tom Coronel and Klaas Zwart is a real possibility.

NDS EuroBOSS Track Action:
The NDS EuroBOSS cars take to the track for untimed practice on Saturday 10th at 10:25, with the battle for grid positions starting at 14:50. Following a warm-up at 10:30 on Sunday morning the cars will line up for an F1-style start at 16:40 local time.
