    Background: Australian racing driver Jack Brabham (11) returned to top form June 6 when, driving a Cooper, he won the Grand Prix of Holland at Zandvoort. Dutch spectators showed great sympathy when Britain's Stirling Moss (7) had to stop at the pits on the 16th lap to change a wheel just as he was closing in on Brabham who had led from the start. The afternoon was marred by an accident as Dan Gurney (15), of America, driving a B.R.M., skidded off the track and crashed into a sand dune killing an 18-year-old spectator, Piet Aalders of Haarlem, Gurney was only superficially hurt.

    World champion driver Brabham covered the 75 laps of the 2.6-mile circuit at an average speed of 96.11 m.p.h. in a superb display of skill and reliability. For much of the race, crowds were thrilled by the attempt of Stirling Moss to make up for his three-minute delay. He nearly snatched third place from Graham Hill (16), driving a B.R.M., but the handicap was too great. There was one consolation for Moss: he set up a new lap record 1 min. 32.8 secs on the very last lap.

    Second in the race, after a steady drive, was Britain's Innes Ireland (4), in a Lotus. He was closely accompanied by Lotus team-mate Alan Stacey (5) for 60 laps until Stacey retired with gearbox trouble.

    In the driver's championship McLaren still leads with 14 points, followed by Moss with 11 points; Brabham, 8; Ireland, 7; and Addison, 6.

    Lance Reventlow, son of heiress Barbara Hutton, had a lucky escape during practice for the Grand Prix, June 5. A rear wheel of his Scarab - a Formula 1 racing car he himself had sponsored - came off as the car was leaving a corner. Fortunately, he was able to bring the car to rest after sliding across the track on a brake disc.
