The 1968 Grand Prix of the Netherlands is important for Matra in more ways than one. In the Matra F1 team, there are two identical chassis, the MS11, but equipped with two different engines. Ford Cosworth already proven for Scottish Jacky Stewart and Matra MS9 for Frenchman Jean-Pierre Beltoise.
Zandvoort will remain as the venue of the first podium for the French driver as for his new engine, with a 2nd place and a best lap in the race for the iconic V12 of 395 hp. Stewart will record here his third victory but the first for the Matra F1 team.
A great brand, Matra, a great driver, Beltoise and a mythical sponsor of motor sport, Gulf, make this picture a perfect vintage illustration of this era.
