DRIVERS: TEDDY PILETTE
Name: Teddy Pilette
Date of birth: July 26, 1942 - Brussels
Son of Andre Pilette, this pleasant Belgian drove a Brabham BT42 in the 1974 Belgian Grand Prix at Nivelles-Baulers, but was better known for his Formula 5000 and Can-Am exploits in cars entered by Stella Artoise brewery millionaire Count Rudi van der Straaten's Team VDS. He won the European F5000 title in 1973 and 1975, but his career never progressed much beyond this second division category.
