A part of the Group 1 armada of the DNRT; Simca Rallye 2, Opel Commodore and one of the Asconas. Fred Frankenhout on the left. Aloys Mattijssen's Simca - he would finish fourth in his race.
The Abarth of Verzijlbergen; a sixth in class was his result. Harrie Geeris brought his Daf 55; second in class, behind the...
... unbeatable Trivellato Fiat 128 coupť of DaniŽls? No, the fastest 1150 pair of Europe crashed in practice. Team mate Pieter Visser and his Berlina won the class. Hans Deen and his 1300 Alfa had another class win.
Ernst Berg's Escort RS had another hollow victory. Chiotakis' championship hopes were destroyed at the start; his clutch cable broke.
Ernst finished fourth in class in the Datsun 240Z. A factory car for Akersloot; this must be an early picture, no NMB-decals on the car yet. He won the race and the championship.
Boshuis had an encouraging race in the CSL, finishing second ahead of Slotemaker. Rien Frankenhout in the unique Ascona Voyage with Manta running gear. The car was both legal and fast.
