Andre "Dries" van der Lof (23 August 1919 in Emmen – 24 May 1990 in Enschede) was a racing driver from the Netherlands. Van der Lof was an industrialist whose factory manufactured electric cable,[1] and competed as an amateur in motorsport events. He participated in one World Championship Grand Prix – the 1952 Dutch Grand Prix on 17 August 1952, where together with Jan Flinterman he was the first driver from the Netherlands to compete in a Formula One World Championship race.[2] Entering a HWM 52, he retired from the race after 70 laps and scored no championship points.[3] He later brought a Maserati 250F and competed in historic racing until the 1980s.[3]
