Zandvoort Trophy (July 17th)

The Zandvoort Trophy race was the second of only two Formula Two races to be held this year specially reserved for non-graded drivers. Nineteen cars turned up, most with Cosworth-Ford FVA engines and the rest with Ford twin-cam engines. The Dutch organisers decided to run a 15-lap qualifying race before the 30-lap final but only to give the spectators more racing. Ickx in the Tyrrell Matra MS5 dominated this just as he had done the practice, when he astounded everyone by breaking the lap record set up a couple of months earlier by Jim Clark during his first victory in the Lotus-Ford 49. Second to Ickx in the qualifier was Irwin in a Lola, then Rees, Beltoise and Courage.
