In the 1930s, there was no real circuit in the Netherlands, so the Nederlandsche Auto Ren Club (NARC) tried to get things moving. After the war, John Hugenholtz started to put plans together for a track at Zeist, and a limited company was set up to see it through. Land was purchased, and f1 million was raised, but more money was needed and the rest of the needed land proved difficult to buy. The plans were abandonded, and Hans Hugenholtz joined the Zandvoort project instead.
