Formula car highway Netherlands

Here’s something you don’t see every day. An open-wheeled race car driving on the highway and passing traffic at a speed we suspect might not be exactly legal. However, this is not just a maniac who owns a formula racing car and decided to drive it like he stole, instead it’s a promotional event for the upcoming Acceleration 1 racing festival and the guy who’s driving seems to know what he’s doing because he’s Jos Verstappen, the former Formula One driver who raced for teams like Benetton, Arrows or Minardi.

Acceleration 2014 is a multi-day festival that takes place this year in 10 locations throughout Europe and which includes car and motorcycle races, tractor pulling, the Nations Cup and different music shows such as David Hasselhoff’s “Celebrate the 80’s and the 90’s with The Hoff” featuring 2 Unlimited, Sabrina, Rick Astley, Vengaboys or the one and only Haddaway. The first edition of the festival took place in Portugal between April 25-27 and it will end in autumn in Assen, Netherlands (October 17-19).
