Van der Garde’s father-in-law buys Spyker stake

The contractual tussle between Super Aguri and Spyker threw a spanner in the works of Giedo van der Garde’s plans this year to be a Friday test driver.

But the Dutchman still has a reason to smile, because his future in formula one moved a step closer to certainty after a piece of news broke on Friday.

The magazine Formule 1 Race Report claims that Dutch entrepreneur and investor Marcel Boekhoorn bought a 5.7 per cent stake in Spyker Cars; the Silverstone based F1 team’s road car arm.

The $10 million investment is significant for van der Garde because Boekhoorn is his girlfriend’s father.
