‘De Telegraaf’ reports that Prince Bernhard of Orange-Nassau, second son of Princess Margriet of The Netherlands, has been punished on Sunday by the directors of the final races at the circuit of Zandvoort. The prince was suspended for the final race of the Tango Dutch GT4 Championship, in which he would participate together with Danny van Dongen in a Corvette C6.

The reason for this was an incident at the Dielcup, on Saturday. When the prince came close to a curve, his car bumped the car of Liesette Braams, who ended next to the circuit, together with two other cars. The prince was shown the black flag and he was not allowed to participate in Sunday’s race.

It isn’t the first time this season that this happened. The prince was not invited to the Dutch GT4-race in Belgium because he didn’t behave correctly, in front of the eyes of the people who were in charge of the race.
