moves him into fourth plaCf~. one point behind Anton Mang. Thin;! home in the race was Walter Villa (Yamaha) looking as good as ever, with Anton Mang holding off Michel Frutschi (Yamaha) in the closing stages. to stay fourth. Australians Graeme McGregor and Jeff Sayle were next home, and both made a big impact on their fiTSt Dutch IT visit. Opening the day's programme, before a crowd of more than 130.000 fans. was the 50cc race won by Eugenio Lazzarini (Kreidler) but only after lillie Ricardo Tormo had grab· bed too big a handful of front brake on the fourth lap and crashed his Bultaco. But then Tormo had opened up a J2s lead. and looked firmly in command. Lazzarini consolidated his tide lead with his win. but the scrap for second place between Frenchman Patrick Plisson (ABF) and Swiss Rolf ~Latter (Kreidler) which. went in Plisson's favour. was the dice which captivated the crowd. Lazzarini's teammate in the Van Veen squad. German Gerhard Waibel, lost his chance of adding to his score when the crankshaft broke on the third lap, when lying third. Tormo made amends for his mistake in the l25cc event which followed. He couldn't beat fellow countryman Angel Nieto (Minarelli) who won his seventh successive l25cc race to maintain a maximum score. but he tried. At the flag the Bultaco factory rider had cut Nieto's lead to just 2 \-25. but ieto had things under control. Third was Italina Maurizio Massimiani (MBA), after Thierry Espie crashed the Motobecane. Determination. and a slice of good luck saw Clive Honon (Morbidelli) fmish tenth. and claim his first well deserved championship . point of the year. e E • ~ E Results 50cc 19 laps, 43.13-mllest: 1, E.
