Sep 2022 | Zandvoort | Duch Grand Prix
From 2 until 4 September, all race-loving eyes were on the Dutch Grand Prix! The CM.com Circuit Zandvoort in The Netherlands was fully packed with more than 100.000 visitors daily, and millions of viewers from around the world tuned in to follow every move. It was three days of an absolute spectacle!
We were part of the second year’s technical- and overlay production team. Right after the 2021 edition, the preps for this year’s experience already started. Our crew was involved in setting up all needed temporary infrastructure, which included the circuit’s colossal grandstand with a total capacity of 90,000 seats – more significant than any other grandstand in the country, surpassing the current holding in the Johan Cruijff ArenA. Materials for this even needed to be imported from neighboring countries like Austria and Germany!
Backbone handled the event’s technical design and production, including the four stages, the entertainment, and all connections for the numerous broadcast partners. From show technics, light, sound, and video to IT, data, and coax connections.
