Lives in Holland, but was so fed up with Formula 1 and motorsport and the way he felt he was treated, that he has become a motor racing recluse, with no interest in talking about his racing days or signing pictures. Roelof instead became involved in the property business. He started his racing career in 1970 in saloon car racing, before taking consecutive Dutch Formula Ford titles in 1972 and 1973. He moved to Formula 3 thereafter and then to F1, but seemed to lose interest after a crash in a Formula 5000 test at Zandvoort, where he suffered a broken cheekbone. The combination of everything saw him leave the sport completely at the end of the 1975 season.
