In 1970 the Chervon B8 was purchased by Dutchman Kees Kwinkelenberg. You can see Kees in 1970 racing this car on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrSL3AlqUdI
Kees entered the Chevron B8 in various Dutch championship races.
In 1973 Kees decided to store the car and in 2003 it finally saw the light of day again when Leo Kemmer bought the car and gave it a well-deserved extensive restoration. Leo only used original Chevron parts. Leo also decided not to interfere with the amazing patina the car has as a sort of tribute.
Here you can see the car’s first dynorun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqRTEujWk10
Leo entered the car in the Dutch historic grand prix at Zandvoort in 2012. A video of the car in action that day can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFpfrRndab4
Unfortunally Leo Kemmer passed away in 2014. Leaving behind this beloved and carefully rebuilded Chevron B8.
