1963 South African GP

South African Grand Prix

Ecurie Maarsbergen

Porsche 718 (201)

No: 14

Q: 20

In practice for the last World Championship race of the season it was once again painfully clear what Carel already knew: his Porsche was really too old to keep up. In East London he couldn’t even keep up with the local privateers and qualified last. On experience and skill he managed to catch the locals one by one and finish tenth.

At the front the South African Grand Prix was another demonstration of 1963 Jim Clark dominance. He led from start to finish and in the end he only accepted Dan Gurney on the same lap, be it over a minute behind.

Carel finished the season fifteenth overall in the Championship, equal on points to Jo Siffert.
