IF the event in question happened, and so far there is no proof whatsoever that it did.........
And -to put it bluntly- two Belgian privateer drivers were robbed of a historic win......
Absent any proof, it did not happen.
Regarding those 'in the know' keeping their mouths shut, for 44 years?? That certainly stretches the limits of credulity.
I'll admit that I have been on the fence about this for a number of years, since I first heard of it, but frankly, with the only case being the statement of the driver in question, and with absolutely no corroboration, confirmation, affirmation, witnesses, statements, writings, proof of any kind, I have to conclude it did not happen.
Hence, the two Belgian drivers of the second place 275-LM were not robbed at all.
