Zolder EEG Trophy


This race, which would be the start of a classic, mainly had Belgian entries - but some fine ones from abroad too. This is Vernaeve and his Mini, 4th in the under-1300 race. And this is the winner of that race: the BDA 1300 cc Escort of Peter Hanson.
This is another Mini, driver unknown. In the back a Renault Gordini. This should be Redeker, 5th in the race.
Another Renault R8 Gordini - the 60's GTI. The unique (by now - its British twin brother was reduced to pieces) Broadspeed Capri of Bourgoignie. He won the race.
Third overall was this luigi BMW CSL of Jean Xhenceval.
This looks like a Group 1B Commodore (Roger Berndtson); I guess that this was a forerunner of the "Francorchamps" ruleset of 1974. My pal Paul says this is Cancian, my guess was Hegels - it is a 2800 CS BMW heavyweight, and Paul is right.
Fritzinger finished second. According to Paul, this is Dex' Escort BDA - he had a 1300 Escort as well here.
Yvette Fontaine and her BDA Escort; she finished fifth overall and won Division 2. The car seems a bit soft in the suspension department.

Paul thinks this is Hegels, but since he figures in the results with a 2800 CS - while this is a CSL allright - I'd put my money on Ogrodowczyk, who finished fourth. Yvette leading yet another Faltz BMW coupé! It seems to differ from the other two, so is this Hegels after all?
