Grote Prijs van Nederland 1974

Bringing up the rear was Niko Kramer in the Abarth 850 TC.
Instead of J.P. Rust, this 1150 TM Fiat 128 coup was driven by Wim Boshuis today. He duly won his class.
Van Oorschot would loose a wheel and retire.
Huub Vermeulen on his way to the grid.
On the left it's Siewertsen, Vermeulen's main opponent today; Akersloot was ill. Which gives me some room to point you to Robert Clayson Photographic, the author of the color images on this page. There are many more there, and they are for sale.
The dummy grid before a packed grandstand. Vermeulen on pole, then Siewertsen, de Vos, Janssen, Tjan, Dijkstra (I'd love to see a picture of his car), van Oorschot, van Zwam, Redeker, Cornelisse, Boshuis, Antonides and the red car is Geeris' Daf.
The white Cherry of Antonides leads this group, followed by Hettelder in the blue Berlina, Boshuis, Kok's Imp, Geeris and Loek Vermeulen's Simca.
Vermeulen on his way to a deserved win.
... and de Vos following.
A typical midfield fight: "Cornelisse" three-wheeling through Panorama, followed by Redeker and van der Vliet.
Redeker leading (lapping) an Abarth. Redeker could drive on three wheels as well!
My hero Huub Vermeulen; an unlucky season, but this time he won! Siewertsen drifting through Panorama, he finished second.
Rob Janssen and the 240Z; the car always looked the part but failed to deliver. It was a retirement this time. Janssen leading Frans de Vos in the ex-Akersloot Capri.
