My name is Herman Liesemeijer, founder of the websites www.circuitsofthepast.com (English) & www.circuitsofthepast.nl (Dutch) and the YouTube channel "Circuits of the past". I was born on November 19, 1967 in the Netherlands in a village called Heerenveen.

I became interested in motorsport in the 1980's and in the early 90's I did racing courses on Zandvoort and visited many motorsport events. When older drivers told about the original Zandvoort track with it's fast corners I was allways fascinated.

In 1998 I visited the circuit ruin of Nivelles-Baulers (now an business park) in Belgium. That's where my fascination for lost race tracks started. It lead to the foundation of my website.

Today I like to make videos of old race tracks. But these videos are relatively expensive to make. I have to travel to the location to film the track and sometimes I have to negotiate with the owner of the ground.

And regularly, I'm faced with closed fences. How great would it be if I had a drone to film the track from the sky. Maybe you can help me to make much more cool video's of lost race tracks for you.
