Profile

Dutch driver Boy Hayje was born in Amsterdam. He made almost no impression in F1, only qualifying in three of the seven grands prix he entered, and then failing to finish any of those. His first entry, at the 1976 Dutch GP, was in a privately-run Penske. The story goes that he was outside the qualifying time only for associates to distract the officials and alter his official time. In 1977 he drove for March after securing sponsorship of US$1 million but he got the raw end of the deal. His car was the patched-up one which had been seriously damaged in a crash the previous year. Disillusioned, he flirted with Formula Two, briefly raced in the USA and subsequently appeared in the European Renault 5 Turbo Championship and ran a family-owned garage. Before making his F1 appearances he won the Dutch Formula Ford Championship, graduating to Formula 5000 and Formula Three.
