Outdoor Activity
Assen is the only venue to have held a round of the Motorcycle World Championship every year since its creation in 1949. The circuit was purpose built for the Dutch TT in 1955, with previous events having been held on public roads. The track is narrow, with rapid changes in direction, and is fully surrounded by grass banks and grandstands, providing excellent viewing for the hundreds of thousands of fanatical spectators who are drawn to the most prestigious event in Dutch motorsport every year. A huge favourite with riders, Assen is well known for its festive and extravagant atmosphere.

For some years, the sidecar class held in a separate Championship, but makes it no longer a member of the Grand Prix. Shafts with a history of nearly 100 years In 1922 became the motorcycle club ' Assen en Omstreken "was founded at the beginning of 1925 to a road race. With the new engine-and cycle ¬ law of 1924 was offered the opportunity to request a waiver to races on the open road. The construction of a new road between Rolled and Borger was for President Dieters of the motorcycle club Assen en Omstreken reason to think again about a road race. The TT from 1927 officially an international competition even though not all famous riders of that time took part in the contest because it is sandwiched between the TT of Man and the Grand Prix of Germany. 14,000 spectators came on the third edition, which was labeled by the organizers as successful.

Extra nice to be invited as a VIP in 2017 at Assen and have access to all locations, the pit, the TT-Tower and the paddock. The 110,000 spectators got small again where for their coming during the MotoGP in 2017. More exciting could not.

  • We got there early so we wouldn't have so many traffic problems. Picking up our tickets was easy and finding a good spot to sit was okay, get there EARLY if you have General Admission tickets. Lots of good spots for viewing. Traffic getting out was not to bad, but for 45km after the track the bikes did not help and caused about 95% of the traffic problems. A disappointment was how much trash was all over the grounds, horrible!! Plus the stairs are at an angle so when it rains they fill up!! Not so great, since it almost always rains. All in all it was a great time.
  • Fantastic general admission includes seating. Great atmosphere and easy to get around unlike other tracks.
  • During TT/motoGP the circuit was well organized, had a good atmosphere, entertainment here and there and good transport (constant stream of busses back to the city).
  • Been to Assen many years working in motorcycle teams since 1983. Love the place! One of my favorite tracks, nice country and people on top of that!
  • Incredible racing, excellent viewing spots if not in a stand. But get there early!
