Zandvoort 52 years ago - Nieuwenhuis Special

Last weekend, the Dutch Grand Prix was supposed to take place at the Zandvoort circuit but we all know that it is now postponed. To ease the pain (to some - I am not a Formula 1 fan myself), here some pictures of the same track back in 1968 when the Nieuwenhuis Special raced there in the Formula Libre class. More about this fascinating little racer here. The pictures were sent to me by Roald Rakers. Thanks again!
