A question for Mr Frank de Jong!

The photo was taken during the saloon car race witch preceded the Dutch Grand Prix in June 1968.

Henk,

I don't have a programma of that race, so it's a little guesswork.
The NSU could be van Oorschot, Selle or Nijsten, the Alfa could be "Johnny Muller" or Chiotakis; since this looks like midfield at best, I'd think Muller. The BMW must be Calis and finally the Cortina should be Beers.

I've got the program here. No. 70 is 'Johnny Muller' in the SRT Holland Alfa Romeo GTA. In what looks like no. 40 is Henri van Oorschot in a NSU 1000 TTS. There is one BMW (2000 TI) listed, no. 82 driven by Tim Calis. There were three Cortinas in that race: Wim Beers (no. 61) and Theo Schoonderbeek (no. 64) and Frans Lubin (no. 75).

It's not Lubin since he raced a mk2 Cortina.

According to 10 Tenths, the Cortina Mk 1 with the KPU 391 C licence was an Alan Mann car in 1966 later purchased by Lubin. But he is listed in the results in a Mk 2. He also apparently had an ex-Mann Mk 2. (You beat me to it Frank!)

Lubin might have passed his earlier Mk1 car on to one of the other blokes mentioned?
