I suggest it is Bart Rosman . He raced his 37 and 35C full speed from the end of the '70s up to now.

I was already suspecting that the person we are discussing here is not Dutch.

Wimille, Veyron, Friderich? All possibilities....

CZAIKOWSKI, Count (le Comte) Stanislas. (Czaykowski).

A rich and popular Polish émigré who appears to have remained loyal to Bugatti throughout his five year racing career. He was never an official member of the works team but was rumoured to have paid Molshiem generously to ensure his cars, which were maintained as works cars, were the best available. He was born on 10th June 1899 in the Hague, Holland, and fought with the French army in WW1. His career started with a type 37A in 1929 and he acquired a type 35B (4957) in June 1930 from Paul Friderich in Nice. The car (order no. 355) was fitted with engine no. 201TC and registered 187 NM 1 in the name of “Compte Stanislas Czaykowski, Basses-Pyrénées”. He still had this car in 1932 and competed in the Boulevard Michelet event in Marseilles accompanied by mechanic Jean Georgenthum. The latter was again with Czaykowski when he won the 1932 Grand Prix of Casablanca. (Photo with Friderich and the Comtesse Czaikowski* B.42/1/16). He subsequently purchased a 2 litre type 51 (later owned by Esson-Scott in the UK). On 5th May he drove his type 54 at the Avus and established several speed records including the World One Hour record with a speed of 132.87mph (213.842 kph) and in the same car he won the British Empire Trophy race at Brooklands. In February 1933 the type 35B (4957) was fitted with a twin-camshaft 1500cc engine and thus became a type 51A with the chassis number 51152. He shared it with Gaupillat at Le Mans in 1933 (comp. no.23) carrying the registration no. 3153-NV2 and rather crude road-equipment (see Vintage Sports Car Club Bulletin no. 175 p.14, and “Grand Prix Bugatti” p.162) but retired at 10pm whilst in 9th place due to a flat battery. He also drove the car on the sea-front at La Baule On the 20th August, 1933 he competed at the IXth Comminges Grand Prix (photo : Memoirs of a Bugatti Hunter, p. 227) but, at Monza on 10th September, again driving the type 54, he crashed fatally whilst leading the final of the Gran Premio d’Italia. News of his death was heard by radio at Molshiem and he was said to have been deeply mourned by the Bugatti family and factory workers. His one hour world record was broken by George Eyston in a Panhard on 6th February 1934 and in the afternoon he drove to Houville-la-Branch near Chatres and placed a wreath on Czaikowski’s grave.”
