The 1970 Dutch Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Zandvoort on June 21, 1970. It was the fifth race of the 1970 Formula One season.

The race was won by Lotus-Ford driver Jochen Rindt in his new monocoque-chassis Type 72, which had only raced twice before (but in a different spec); and this came 3 years after the 72's predecessor; DFV-debutant Type 49 in 1967 won first time out at exactly the same track with Jim Clark driving. The race however was marred by the fatal accident of British driver Piers Courage driving the Frank Williams-entered De Tomaso-Ford.
