The Legends of F1

Exhibition at the Louwman Museum – Netherlands

July 1st to September 4th, 2022

The Louwman Museum is organising the Legends of F1 exhibition to celebrate the return of the Zandvoort Grand Prix.

The Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort returned to the F1 calendar in 2021, and with the arrival at the top of Max Verstappen, became a very popular event.

To celebrate this return of an important page of motorsport in Holland, the Louwman Museum exhibits several cars that participated in the Zandvoort Grand Prix between 1945 and 1970, and even won for some of them.

The 8 cars are presented in the form of a Formula 1 grid. If they are all witnesses of the evolution of the discipline in this period, 4 cars stand out from the crowd:

  • The Talbot-Lago T26C, winner in 1950 and 1951 in the hands of Louis Rosier
  • The Ferrari 500 F2, winner in 1952 and 1953 driven by Alberto Ascari, who was also World Champion those 2 years
  • The Mercedes-Benz W196, Winner of the 1955 Zandvoort Grand Prix with Juan Manuel Fangio, who will also be World Champion in 1955
  • The Lotus 33 of Jim Clark, winner of the 1965 Zandvoort Grand Prix, also World Champion the same year

This exhibition enriches the visit of an otherwise very complete museum, with nearly 300 cars and many works of art.
