Report: MaartenMemorial 2008

"When I'm driving my Lotus, I don't feel sick." These famous words are the reason why a couple of friends started an event called MaartenMemorial. This year, the MaartenMemorial was organised on August 5th, a day after Maarten died five years ago. Maarten van Sten died from cancer at the age of 27. He was a Lotus fanatic and had his own business, Van Sten Engineering. He spent his last days in the Daniel den Hoed clinique. MaartenMemorial is a fantastic event to raise funds to finance cancer research. Nearly 100 cars attend every year. Everybody gathers at the Feyenoord stadium, the Kuip, and they leave just after noon to the famous track in Zandvoort. Before all cars arrived there, each car did a soundcheck at The Pitstop in Amsterdam before heading down to Zandvoort.

As a photographer for the Lotus Club Holland, I had the privilege to be a passenger and drive along with all those other cars. It's been a fantastic day and the Daniel den Hoed clinique received a cheque of 129.000 euro. This is not enough! Support cancer research and make sure you make your donation today!

If you're looking for a photo of a particular car and you don't see it here, please send me an email clicking here and I'll have a look in my archive!
