Car: Chevrolet Corvette
Occupation: Commercial barge captain / Director: barge industry consultancy
Home Town/Country: Netherlands
Team: Pro Dutch Racing
Best ET: 6.174 seconds
Best Terminal Speed: 232.93mph

Pro Dutch team’s ex-Oddy/Hahn USA machine, built by Australia’s Murray Anderson, won Hockenheim 2006, Santa Pod’s 2007 Easter Thunderball, Mantorp Park 2008. In 2009, hit tremendous 6.20/230 low qualifier in damp near-darkness at Easter Thunderball (MSA Rnd.1), only for tyre-smoke to spell first-round defeat. Qualified 6th at Main Event (MSA Rnd.2) but crashed spectacularly in opening round, fortunately without injury and with less car damage than originally feared.
