  1. As a Dutchman I'm holding my breath at the
    moment for the existence of the Spyker factory.
    The financial crysis we are all in and the low
    amount of sold cars and ofcourse the F1 team
    they owned did not any good to the Dutch

    Lets hope this car will save the day for Spyker.

    BTW, speaking of Tom Coronel, I saw a program
    on a Dutch channel with onboard WTCC footage
    of Tommy. The good thing about it is that
    they left his helmet microphone switched on,
    note the "sounds" he makes Priceless!

    (and he does it all the time)
