JE Pistons New Ultra Series

Ultra Series pistons are the cream of the crop, combining all of JE’s premium features into a ready-to-ship shelf part. Ceramic crown treatment, lateral gas ports, Perfect Skirt coating, accumulator grooves, thick-wall wrist pins, double pin oilers, and a premium, carbon-steel ring pack are all part of the winning formula. In addition to the all-star feature list, Ultra Series pistons incorporate a revolutionary, new forging style that strengthens the piston at the material level outward. Grain-Flow Optimization is a breakthrough, and proprietary, piston forging technology and the result of tireless research and development of the in-house JE forging process. For the first time, engineers are able to precisely control metal grain direction around key structural elements of a piston, such as the crown and pin bosses, for exceptional strength improvements. All these traits combine to make the new Ultra Series the most technologically advanced, and feature rich, JE piston line to date.

Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort presents an impressive international programme

From 31 August until 2 September, 2018, Circuit Zandvoort (the Netherlands) will be hosting the seventh running of the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort. This year, once again, the tens of thousands of spectators will be treated to a mix of international top-level series that includes two spectacular new categories. Get ready for three days of historic Formula 1, Formula 3, DTM, Le Mans style sports cars and much, much more!

Worldwide, only four historic racing categories can proudly boast about official FIA status. The Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort is the only event where all these categories will be on track. The Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort will be setting the stage for the inaugural FIA Historic Formula 3 European Cup, open to Formula 3 cars built between 1971 and the end of 1984. Circuit Zandvoort has been appointed as the venue for the event to acknowledge the track’s long and rich heritage in Formula 3. This started almost 70 years ago with rounds of the 500 cc Formula 3 class that will be back for this year’s Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort. The world-renowned Masters of Formula 3 is also a part of Zandvoort’s heritage. This year, the FIA Formula 3 European Championship will be back at Circuit Zandvoort during the DTM event that has become a tradition in its own right.

DTM tin top action

The ‘Tourenwagen Classics’ series revives the history of the DTM from the 1980s and 90s, among others. For the first time, the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort will be welcoming an impressive field of DTM classics like the Mercedes 190 Evo 2, BMW M3 and Alfa 155 V6. DTM stars like Roland Asch, Kurt Thiim and Altfrid Heger, who are regular competitors, are the icing on the cake!

Formula 1, and much more

Of course, the familiar crowd’s favourites will be present, too. The FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship with Formula 1 cars from 1966-1985 will bring back the spectators to the era of the Dutch Grand Prix. The FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship accommodates, among others, brawny Le Mans style sports prototypes from 1962-1974. The FIA Lurani Trophy for Formula Junior cars ranks among the jewels of historic motorsport and is one of the favourites for many spectators of the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort. Further good news is the return of the Historic Formula 2 class tohe Zandvoort dunes.

Full grids

Like last year, the Gentlemen Drivers (pre-1966 GTs) and Pre-66 Touring car classes will be combined with the GTs and the touring cars from the Dutch historic touring car and GT championship (NK HTGT). This is a guarantee for full competitive grids and thrilling duels. The same can be said about the NK GTTC, the successful Dutch category for touring cars and GTs from 1966-1981.

Spectacular and special demonstration runs also traditionally rank among the highlights of every Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort. Currently, the event organisers are working hard to exceed expectations once again this year!
