Earlier this week we stumbled upon footage of a race that has been a decisive moment in the careers of András Király and Robin Verdegaal. The existence of this historic video only came to light after an amateur filmer’s archive was recovered.
In the video both SFH pilots can be seen driving a grand prix at the dutch circuit of Zandvoort in the late sixties, earlier in their racing careers. It shows a very young Király furiously throwing the Brabham around the track and taking what must be one of his first victories.
However this race also marks the dramatic crash that forced Verdegaal to end his Grand Prix Legends career. Verdegaal, who had problems in the qualifying session, was making up places in a come back race. After a misunderstanding with a lapped pilot Verdegaal’s Brabham was launched off track to end up in the undergrowth some twenty meters beyond the armco of Tunnel Oost.
