Doornse Gat is a sandhill located in the park with the same name. It is east of "Doorn", a village located in the Utrechtse Heuvelrug, 15 km south of Amersfoort.
In 2016 the first four races were held at Doornse Gat as well as races 7-10. Most were quite long and had splits and rocks as the main obstacles, as well as corners and banked hairpins and corners.
In 2017 the first two races were held at Doornse Gat. They were simple, medium races. After the summer break, races 7 to 10 were all held at Doornse Gat. The layout of the track used in races 7 and 8 was similar to the first one. The layout used in the next 2 races was fairly simple, not too technical, but longer than the previous ones. It had the teardrop where Red Number 3 got stuck while comfortably leading the race and it had a hard left turn at the end before the finish. It also featured a Plinko Board that stopped El Capitan and Glassy (the race leaders) and allowed Wisp of Darkness to take their only SMR win
In 2018 only two races were held at Doornse Gat. The layout was more technical than any of the previous tracks and they were also quite long.
Doornse Gat hosted all the races of 2019. Race 1 and 2's track featured many slaloms and a few helices while the track for race 3-4 had a lop-sided split that massively favored the top line, which was harder to take and changed the winner both races, along with many helices that caught out multiple racers. The race 5-6 course had a bridge and a long finishing section with boosts that sped up the marbles dramatically. It also had a final curve where Ghost Plasma made some controversial blocks that caused all the marbles to bunch up and even stop in race 5. Race 7-8's track had two variants - the one with two tight turns at the start and the one with a longer, faster section as well as a bumpy final straight where many marbles chose to draft the marble in front rather than try and pass due to the track's tiring nature.
