Macau2018 MR Florsch Horror Crash Amateur
I can't find any words for this one, that's probably the worst that could have happend in a crash like this.

I hope she will make a full recovery as well as for the marshall and photographers.

If they had the HANDS device back then his neck would have sustained the frontal impact.

Very sad :(

Pocono2018 Restart Wickens HunterReay Hinchcliffe Fittipaldi Sato Horror Crash Red Flag Live
I'm so glad he did not hit that pole with his cockpit otherwise the outcome would have been catastrofic .. glad to hear he was awake and alert.

Pocono is such a great track but still very dangerous for indy cars to my opinion.

Riverside 1968 Sell Huge Crash Rolls Fire
@mattia Thanks mate, I thought it was a bit strange doing such thing on live broadcast. :)
Riverside 1968 Sell Huge Crash Rolls Fire
Most disturbing thing I think is when the commentators are saying we'll get back because the action is on the racetrack and the accident is off.

While that poor man is fighting inside his car they just continued the race like nothing happened.

Glad he got out of that mangled car. :/
RoadAmerica2018 Lyons and Ward Huge Crash

That's a shitty crash .. as a marshal your an assistant to the driver but this is a bad thing if one of those gets hurt.

Same as I feld with the DTM wet pit at the Hungaroring were marshalls were involved in pit lane incidents.
CalderPark 1984 Newton Huge Crash Extended
The expected challenge from Alan Newton in his Elfin MS7-Repco Holden (the same car that Elfin Sports Cars founder Garrie Cooper had used to win the 1975 Championship) came to a premature end during the first lap of the second heat at the opening round at Calder. Sitting in second behind Clearihan going down Calder's back straight, the cars throttle jammed open going into the braking area and Newton veered left, running at high speed across the infield until hitting a small rise which saw the Elfin literally fly across the track (it was airborne for approximately 20 metres) before landing and hitting the guardrail at undiminished speed. Newton survived the crash with nothing more than a busted knee and broken ankle (later during the race Newton was shown by race broadcaster Channel 7 sitting up and talking to medical staff as he was being placed into an ambulance)

Norisring2018 Race 2 Start Ticktum Vaidyanathan Big Crash Red Flag
@Nascar47fan I agree on that mate, hard lesson but he will learn from it I hope .. 5 seconds to not avoid a solid object is indeed a bit too much.
Norisring2018 Race 2 Start Ticktum Vaidyanathan Big Crash Red Flag
When starting on the right side of the straight all you do as a driver is first look at the left for other drivers because you won't expect a stolling car in front of you .. well not directly in front ..

He had clear visability in front when starting and turned his head to the left for other drivers but realised too late there was this stalling car .. it looked like he had so much time to avoid this crash but he never expected this car .. if it was a car directly in front or maybe 2 cars in front he would have avoid him.

Olavarria2018 R3 Cup Final Gerbasi Fatal Crash
@crills2000 We are talking motor biking here.
It's very sad to see a biker get hit frontal by another biker, there wasn't anything that could have done to prevent these kind of crashes.

To me it looked like a pretty save track with wide open run off erea.
Accidents like these happens sad but truth.

Monaco2018 Serie G Group 2 Qualifying Lajoux and FolchRusinol Crash
@metallica101 It gives me a good feeling now with the wise words you choose and I really do believe these cars should always be available for racing because that's what they used to mend for.

I Honestly still get a slightly broken heart seeing damage done to a historic GP car but well .. that's part of the sport of racing ain't it :w

It's sad to see so many unknown drivers driving an old F1 car and just think they can handle all that horse power.

Belgium2018 Qualifying Fittipaldi Big Crash Pure Sounds
I always wonder what caused a crash, to me it looked like a broken suspencion .. car went straight in the middle of the corner with no wheelspin on the back tyres wich should ended up with a tail spin .. instead the car didn't turn as should be expected with a normal racing speed.

I'd say .. suspencion failure sadly with no time to react to it.

@x3xu14 although racing and crashes both goes hand in hand it's not really nice to see people get hurt so a bit more respect should be in place here.

Indianapolis 2008 Qual Foyt Strange Crash
As I see this crash did not happen during Quali so maybe the title should be changed to practice crash :)
Indianapolis 2008 Qual Foyt Strange Crash
2008 for sure .. according to wikipedia ..

Sunday May 18, 2008 - Bump Day time trials

Qualifications summary
Shortly after the track opened for time trials, A. J. Foyt IV easily bumped his way into the field, bumping Marty Roth in the process. Later in the afternoon, Roth was able to secure a spot by bumping Buddy Lazier.
After qualifying, A. J. Foyt IV took his car out for practice. The fuel buckeye cover broke off after he exited the pits, and in turn three, a fire started on the side of the car, causing him to spin and crash into the wall. The car was heavily damaged. With Roger Yasukawa on the bubble, Mario Dominguez made his first attempt to qualify, but was too slow.
Montreal 1990 Pareja Huge Crash Amateur
Comment Posted! @SimonKevNorris According to Wikipedia ..

The 1990 Montreal incident
Pareja was involved in a massive accident during the 1990 WSPC round at Montreal. On his 59th lap driving a Porsche 962C entered by (and shared with) Walter Brun, he hit a fragment of a manhole cover which had been torn out of the ground by a car further ahead. Several cars hit the debris but Pareja was especially unfortunate. His fuel tank was ruptured and the car immediately burst into flames. Remarkably, the marshals were able to put the fire out and rescue Pareja.

Macau2017 Hegarty Horror Crash Amateur
I might be wrong but his body flew too high to hit the guard rail .. My guess is he flew into the metal catch fence and hit a metal pole .. it's the only explanation why he lost his helmet .. metal fences do absorb enough energy to the body to survive a crash like this .. his speed wasn't that high enough to cause death.

Hitting the metal pole would have caused enough energy to lose a helmet and causing brain damage .. nevertheless a terrible accident that could have been avoided .. just don't let any bikers allow to race on street circuits .. risks although fully taken by the bikers isn't worth it :(
Macau2017 Hegarty Horror Crash Amateur

Nurburgring 1972 Muller Huge Crash
@pikachumotorsport His full name was Herbert Muller and no he did not survive this crash.

His car hit an already stranded car in pit lane and caught fire, the initial impact killed him before he got burned .. Muller refused to wear seat belts during races after the had a fiery accident a few years before this crash.

During his earlier crash he did wear seat belts but was unable to get out of his burning car quick .. he suit was on fire by the time he got out and luckily a marshall put out the flames.

I guess He was very afraid to wear seat belts after that incident off getting burned alive .. he never wear those after that race and ironicly that's what killed him during his last accident :(

@zaggi222 Thanx for the vid made, I guess missed that one ..

Looks like maybe a tyre went down or he was steering onto the grass for some other reason ..

Anyway a freak accident that could have been prevented by putting tyre barriers instead of a solid dirt wall, that driver side impact was not survivable :(

Gateway2017 Start Power Carpenter Crash
@vettelisthebest I don't think a Halo can protect a driver this way as flying debri can easily enter the cockpit.

But on the other hand, if a tyre should hit the cockpit with Halo protection then the Halo would protect the helmet.

Either way, Halo or no Halo it's open wheel racing and drivers understand the risks their taking, a Halo just put up an invisible protection where drivers can think their save but it's still racing and freak accidents will accur in the future no matter what protection system will be used.
Atlanta 1986 Glidden Flips
Nice footage .. many taken from the "decade of Thrills" VHS tapes by Diamond P Sports.

I still own 2 VHS tapes, Decades of Thrills wich covers the late 70's and 80's and one calles Decades of Thrills 2 wich covers races and crashes from the 90's.

Shame I don't own a VHS anymore but the tapes stays in the collection just to bring up some good memories.

Both tapes can be seen on youtube .. First tape .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhoNctLo4gw

Riverside 1984 Felton Huge Crash
This crash happened in the 6 hours race of Trans-Am in 1984 . not 1987.

It took 19 month for Felton to recover and get back behind the wheel of a race car but left him with a paralyzed vocal cord and partial paralysis the left side of his body.

Injuries he sustained were his hangman`s vertebrae, fractured a couple of shoulders, broke 7 ribs, bruised his heart, bruised his brain and some internal hermorrhaging.

Now age 81 he is founder of the "Gene Feltons Restorations" restoring older race cars including many old Nascar cars.

Zandvoort2017 Qualifying 2 Glock Deliberately Blocks Mortara and Calls Him an Idiot
What Timo did here was playing for judge and jury himself, he should not be an a race track with that attitude.

He might had a point he was held up but it's up to race control to deal with situations like this.

causing a dangerous situation on a race track is in my eyes one of the worst things a professional race driver can do and timo should know that with all his experience :/
