Signs For Racing For Holland!
On the sacred ground of the Amsterdam Olympic stadium this week,
the Johan Cruyff Foundation organized an informal soccer tournament
for its supporting companies and their guests. The legendary Johan
himself played with a group Dutch celebrities and TV personalities
– including the super-fit looking Jan Lammers.
Cruyff is from an era when footballers were men
and the likes of Wayne Rooney hadn’t yet stumbled across a
fortune to throw away on gambling.
The Johan Cruyff Foundation supports sports and
play for children worldwide. Special attention is paid to children
”Children have the right to sport and recreation,
as stated in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. We believe
that through sports, children build up social skills, learn how
to win and lose, and how to develop tactics and strategy. As a result
children develop self-confidence and a sense of achievement. But
mainly..sports can be plain fun!”
Those are the defining words on the www.cruyff-foundation.org
website, and an association between these two greats of Dutch sport
can only raise awareness of the Racing for Holland programme at
Jan Lammers will be celebrating his 20th race at
Le Mans this year – with, as pointed out earlier this week,
the only line-up comprising all ex-F1 drivers.
Keep an eye on the www.racingforholland.com
website in the build-up to Le Mans, and during race week.
