Eric van de Poele

Sunday 30th September 1951

Born on this day, Eric van de Poele. The Belgian driver entered 29 grands prix but started only five, thanks to him being associated with teams low and funds and with outdated cars. A ninth for Modena at San Marino was a promising debut, but he only qualified for one of the next 22 races. His last hurrah came with three outings for Fondemetal before its money ran out.
