Looks promising...! 😍 Is there any historical part left somewhere...?

It’s when everyone goes to the beach and finds it’s all rocks and the sand has all disappeared 🤷🏻‍♂️

Yesterday on Australian day, 26th January, there was held a wake for- and in memory of

TIM KUCHEL

Our thoughts we will be with his family and friends in remembrance to Tim.

With big grief we have become the sad knowledge that on 14th December has passed away after a battle with cancer.
The first time we met Tim was in 2015 with our races at Spa-Francorchamps.
Together with his friend Wayne Wilson he fulfilled his dream to race with one of his Brabham’s in Europe on several circuits.
All the preparations, like booking the shipment for his single seater from of Australia to Europe, and his flight,
he did it to fulfil his dreams.
He enjoyed the racing with the HMR so very much, that in 2016 he returned to join our races at Assen,
and in 2017 we could welcome Tim at Zandvoort for our races.
He loved the tracks and the HMR atmosphere so much and the HMR drivers liked the person Tim so much,
that he became a good friend from many of us.
Tim was such an enthusiastic racing driver and a great Brabham lover, that he organised in 2016 with friends
the 50th Anniversary of Jack Brabham’s win in the French GP and of the closure of the Reims track
the day after in September.
In 2017 at Zandvoort we knew that this was the last time we would see Tim in person, because soon after we heard from him that he was very ill, and could not make the trip from Australia to Europe anymore, but asked me to keep going on with sending him the HMR Newsletters, so that he would stay informed about the HMR family. And of course we did.
During his illness he stayed positive and took part to some medical experiences with the hope to extend his life.

Tim, being a scientist, has given his body to the research people.
During his working career, Tim was awarded the Order of Australia, an order of chivalry established in 1975 by Queen Elizabeth II of Australia, to recognise Australian citizens and other persons for achievement of meritorious service.

Dear Tim, may you rest in peace.
You were a very friendly man and sportsmanlike driver and above all you stayed a very positive man during your illness.
We hope that you are at this moment discussing with Jack Brabham and Denis Hulme how it was to drive at Zandvoort, Spa-Francorchamps and Assen and all the races you did with the HMR.

Our condolences to his family and friends, and we wish them all a lot of strength with this big loss.

2020 MARCEL ALBERS MEMORIAL TROPHY TO RACE ON NEW ZANDVOORT GP TRACK

The 2020 edition of the Marcel Albers Memorial Trophy, the Formula Ford 1600 Kent event created in 2014 to honour the life and career of Dutch single-seater talent Marcel Albers, has unveiled that it will race on the revamped Zandvoort Grand Prix venue during the traditional Pinkster Races event
The seventh running of the international event, which is run jointly by the Circuit Zandvoort and Historische Monoposto Racing organisations, will take place during the Pinkster Races event on the 29th, 30th and 31st of May, following hot on the heels of the Dutch Grand Prix to the Dutch dunes. Amongst the participating championships already announced for the event is the Benelux Porsche Carrera Cup and Historische Monoposto Racing series.
The circuit of Zandvoort is currently undergoing an extensive revamp to ready it for the return of the Formula One World Championship, modifications that range from upgraded facilities and amenities to changes to the circuit itself, including the already publicised final corner which will have a 18- degree banking and will form a highlight on the new Grand Prix track.
In keeping with tradition the event enjoys its budget-friendly stature. Entry fees, which include two races and a qualifying session €400,00 for non HMR competitors and €300 for competitors that choose to add the Marcel Albers Memorial Trophy races alongside the two races in the Historische Monoposto Racing series, run for pre-1982 machines.
Additional free practice opportunities are offered on Friday the 29th of May open to all competitors. Tickets for these free practice(s) can be purchased at Circuit Zandvoort.
The Marcel Albers Memorial Trophy will again run with a three-class system, for Pre-82, Pre-92 and post-92 cars with the overall winner winning the Marcel Albers Memorial Trophy and add his name to the growing list of international winners.
Entry for the Marcel Albers Memorial Trophy is now open and can be completed online at www.circuitzandvoort.nl/mamt for further information please contact Menno Weeda at Menno@circuitzandvoort.nl. or Helana van der Wouden at helana@monoposto.nl.
