Rob Slotemaker

Rob "Sloot" Slotemaker (13 June 1929 in Batavia, Dutch East Indies, (now Jakarta, Indonesia) – 16 September 1979 in Zandvoort, Netherlands) was a racing driver from the Netherlands.

He entered one Formula One World Championship race, the 1962 Dutch Grand Prix, with one of Carel Godin de Beaufort's Porsches, but his car was not ready in time for the event, and his entry was taken by Wolfgang Seidel. Throughout the 1960s Slotemaker competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, and was a driver and advisor for the Le Mans film in 1970.

In 1956 he established his "Anti-skid" driving school at Zandvoort, which is still operating today.

On 16 September 1979 at the Circuit Park Zandvoort, Slotemaker was killed when he crashed his Chevrolet Camaro during the "Trophy of the Dunes" touring car race. His car spun on a patch of oil and collided with a course car parked alongside the track. Despite the relatively minor force of the accident, he suffered a broken neck and died instantly. A doctor in the course car was also injured.

Famous quotes containing the word rob:

    By this also ye must know that women have dominion over you: do ye not labour and toil, and give and bring all to the woman? Yea, a man taketh his sword, and goeth his way to rob and to steal, to sail upon the sea and upon rivers, and looketh upon a lion, and goeth in the darkness; and when he hath stolen, spoiled, and robbed, he bringeth it to his love.
    Apocrypha. Zorobabel, in Esdras I 4:22-24.
