An important step has been taken for the realization of the Dutch Grand Prix in 2020, while the Assen circuit and the local government are racing a race organizer to conclude an agreement with the managers of the Formula 1.
While there have been various speculations about the Dutch going back for a long time, the Assen circuit seems to be in pole position in order to be able to host the race.
The track has been officially approved by F1 Racing Director Charlie Whiting earlier this year, with some minor changes being made to the FIA icense to get the license.
Now, commercial talks to get back in touch will be handled by a new company, the Netherlands Grand Prix Foundation.
Former Assen TT manager Jos Vaessen has been given full authority to make an agreement with the company, Liberty Media, to conduct a race in Assen.
"It feels extremely good to be in talks about Formula 1 being made in Assen in the future," Vaessen said.
"No circuit in the world is hosting MotoGP, F1 and MXGP events in the same year, and it will make us absolutely unique." said.
