Hello,

I write to you from France. I need some help :
I'm looking for pictures of the Michel Oprey's F40.

All pictures are welcome and particularly at Zandvoort with number 15.

I have difficulties to identify some stickers :

n°1 : on both sides of the support of the rear spoiler ?
n°2 : on the left side of the support of the rear spoiler ?
n°3 : on front of the roof : left side in blue ?
n°4 : on the visor after "KUMHO TYRE" ?
n°5 : just below n°4 ?
n°6 : on the right side of the windshield, in blue ?
n°7 : below in green ?
n°8 : in white and black ?
n°9 : in white and red ?

Thank you.
Pat

Who can tell me what is written below the "helmet" ?

Thank you.

I think it's Ferrari, maybe there a second word under it.

There's a scale model of this car for sale on ebay. Maybe you can ask the seller to take some pictures of his model ? :

Thank you, Pascal.

I'm looking for over two years and Michel Oprey himself sent me four pictures.
I found 80 photos last week and I have around one hundred pictures about the car in different races and about the modelcars.
But I can not read what is written except "Ferrari" on the first line !

Maybe "Import ... Kroymans" or "Racing Team Kroymans"?

Hello Patrick, I'll try to contact Mr. Wolters for you. Mr. Wolters and son were the producers off the modelcar (Cavallo Scrimante Modelcars) based on a Bburago F40. Maybe they can help you out.
If I know more I'll let you know.

Real car now more in the collection off Michel Oprey.Seems to be somewere in a garage in Turnhout (Belgian) on flat tyres. I made some pictures from the #3 car and a decalsheat. #3 is from Zolder ciquit 20 04 1997. No. 6 on the windscreen (bleu one) shows a helmet with below the year off racing, in this case I think 1996. Decalsheat (#1) is from Italia a Zandvoort M. Oprey Winner 1998. I hope it'll help a bit.

Patrick, there is probably more info/pictures to find on a new site by Marcel Wallenburg.
www.ferrari-register.nl I discovered a lot off pictures from the Michel Oprey's F40 that were new to me.

Hello PAT30, I have just found this threat. Do you still need any info about this F40?
I know a lot of this car...

PAT30

Hello DLR,
Thank you for your proposition.
Since I found a nederland website with many pictures but I'm always interested by any info about Michel Oprey's F40 and about David Hart's F40, too : pictures are rare...
It was the same car with s/n 80782.

DLR
02-10-2014, 22:41
I will search for some pictures soon...

Ideed, the David Hart/Hans Willem te Pas and Michel Oprey F40 are the same, s/n 80782.
David Hart has also driven the red Rinie v.d. Velden F40 once at Zandvoort, I believe that's s/n 80771.

And there was also the Dick Waaijenberg F40 (ex Frits Kroymans) with s/n 80778.

I confirm all my interest.

The number of pictures of the car of David Hart is less than those about Michel Oprey...
I wrote to David Hart and unfortunately I didn't receive any picture.

Unfortunately I don´t have any pictures of the yellow car in 1996 when David Hart was driving it. Your pictures above at Zandvoort 1998 should also be 1996. This was the only year David Hart drove this car. If I remember correct it was driven in 1997 at the first race of the 1997 Ferrari-Porsche challenge season at the Zolder circuit (Belgium) by Hans Willem te Pas. After this race Michel Oprey bought the car.

The red "David Hart" F40 on your picture was actually the Rinie v.d. Velden F40 (s/n 80771). I think it was 1997 or 1998 at Zandvoort (Marlboro Masters) when David Hart raced this F40 for one weekend as a replacement for his Porsche GT2. This red F40 won the 1993 and 1994 Ferrari/Porsche championship with Rinie v.d. Velden.

I'm curious to see others pictures of the red "David Hart".

DLR thank you for your informations.

A bit late, but I found some pictures from the yellow F40 interior. Sorry for the bad quality, made a picture from a picture...

Thank you so much, DLR.

Do you have any pictures of the David Hart's F40 when it was red ?

DLR
08-09-2015, 22:40
No unfortunately not PAT30.

I know David has done a race with the ex Rinie van der Velden F40 (#80771 I believe), don't know if he raced another red one. The yellow F40 was red before '96, but not sure if he raced with it at that time. I remember there where test runs on the data logger from before David drove it, test was with Cor Euser or Patrick Huisman I believe.

Maarten, super bedankt voor deze interieur plaatjes. Had inmiddels de nodige foto's van het exterieur maar deze zijn meer dan welkom.

Ik zou het zeer waarderen Maarten als er nog meerdere (detail) plaatjes zouden opduiken. Zo heb ik ook nog geen beelden van de motor.

DLR

Ik heb er helaas geen van de motor. Mocht ik daar toch foto's van vinden dan zal ik ze plaatsen. Hier nog een paar andere van de auto:

Geweldig Maarten. Voor mij zijn dit weer nieuwe plaatjes. Zo is op de laatste foto ook goed te zien dat er (behalve de breedte) flink verschil is tussen de voor en achter velg.
