Van Amersfoort Racing | Team's Vision

Team's Vision

Van Amersfoort Racing (VAR), one of the European most renown auto racing development team has entered a new era in its four-decade successful history. The Netherland-based structure established in 1975 by Frits Van Amersfoort has over the course of the last few years, proudly been implementing a comprehensive modernisation program. It involved major investments and the establishment of new, state-of-the-art headquarters, in order to enhance its involvement in two important development programs: the FIA European Formula 3 and ADAC Formula 4 championships. With all the right tools and personnel in place, the management considers the team to be a strong and well-prepared organisation. More than ever, VAR is able to help young drivers build successful careers in auto racing. Such is written in its DNA and ideally reflected in its motto: “Passion. Dedication. Tradition”.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help young auto racing drivers achieve successes in Motorsport, but also acquire and embrace strong values that will likely help them in their adult lives; such done as we understand that the individuals under our authority are teenagers at a key stage of apprenticeship in their life.

We consider of a prime importance to be up to our promises and to invest and devote the necessary resources, talents, time and energy to be successful in fulfilling our mission while we avoid generating unrealistic expectations, but also where winning remains an ultimate positive objective.

Our Future

The world is changing rapidly and that is also the case with autosport. To ensure our business in the future we keep investing in new technologies and in people and keep a close eye on developments in autosport.

At VAR we strongly believe in the power of talent. That is why we work and keep on working closely together with universities and technical partners.

And we’ve already done this over the past 40 years, that’s why VAR is one of the most solid ‘stepping stone’ race team in Europe.


One day in the life of our founder, a choice was made, driven by a passion: he was to devote a good part of his life to Motorsport, the unique nature of the sport and its technology. Over the years, this passion has been shared with dozens of employees and transmitted to young individuals. Today, this passion still fuels his action every day of his life.


From day one, we have always devoted the very best of us – time, energy, knowledge, and understanding - to the success of the individuals that as young drivers, entrusted our team at the beginning of each racing season. We would never neglect examining any ways and possibilities that could be beneficial to the career and life of those who chose to join us and spend a key moment of their life with us. We are engaged!


We take pride in the success we encountered over the last four decades, but also for having been persistent and also resilient when over the years, the results have not been up to our expectations. Our pride is also fed by the numerous individuals that went on to be victorious in their career and life following the time spent with our team, as drivers and/or employees. We cherish the respect that we earned in the world of Motorsport.
