Built in 1963, Zolder hosted the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix on 10 separate occasions in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as the 1980 Belgian motorcycle Grand Prix. F1 moved to Zolder in 1970 and switched between Nivelles-Baulers until 1974. From 1975 to 1982, Zolder was the location of the Belgian Grand Prix. Zolder is the place where Gilles Villeneuve died during qualifying at the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix. The Belgian Grand Prix was held here only once more in 1984 before returning to the shortened Spa-Francorchamps.
In the beginning of 2006, the track underwent safety adaptations. In 2007, the track hosted a Champ Car World Series Grand Prix, and a round of the FIA GT Championship. The track was venue of a round of the World Series by Renault championship from 2003 to 2006, and replaced Zandvoort as site for the Masters of Formula 3 in 2007 and 2008. Zolder was featured on the car program Top Gear in 2008. In the episode, the show's British hosts competed against their German counterparts from D MOTOR. Zolder currently hosts the FIA WTCC Race of Belgium and the GT Belcar championship, including the 24 Hours of Zolder.
