Guest Speaker: Mr. Willem Toet
Willem Toet is an enthusiastic motorsport professional with 30 years in Formula 1 (F1).  Recently out of F1, he can now expose some of the background that the big publicity machine behind the sport tries to keep hidden. He has mainly led vehicle development and aerodynamic groups but has also had in-depth involvement in the business of motorsport. Willem Toet worked for Benetton, winning the F1 World Championship with them before moving to Ferrari where he brought aerodynamic development back into Italy with the build of a state-of-the-art wind tunnel which was used for all of their world championships since 2000. Following Ferrari he worked for BAR/Honda and Sauber.
