He is seen in many shots of the racers throughout the movie. He is strangely not seen in the Wings Around the Globe pit row at John F. Kennedy International Airport despite his tent appearing there, although it could be that he was somewhere else at the time. When Dusty is broken and needs repairs, Van Der Bird gives him supplies.

Profiles and statistics

  • Bio
    • "Back in the glorious 1920s and 1930s, the Dutch dominated the world of aviation. Van Der Bird races every day to restore the Netherlands' legacy. Training over sprawling tulip fields and beautiful windmills, Van Der Bird has a singular focus: to be the best. The Netherlands inspires him to soar through every race; the faster he flies, the sooner he can return to his beloved homeland."[1]

Trivia

  • The name "Van Der Bird" could be a possible reference to the Formula One driver Giedo van der Garde, who is also from the Netherlands, or Sage VanDerSpin, who appears in Cars
