chat icon 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.

chat icon 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 Smilie

chat icon 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 Smilie

chat icon Belgium2017 FP1 Massa Crashes
There's lesser room at the end of the sand pit due to safety reasons, their used to be only one tyre barrier but they put up a 2 stack with an angle change so any driver going of strait would not hit the barrier strait on.

Side impact crashes are still the worst a driver can take and with the combination of a direct slow down after impact it could lead to brain damage, Massa was very lucky here although the crash itself didn't look that hard.

chat icon 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.

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.

chat icon 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 Smilie

chat icon Zandvoort2017 Race1 Start Beckmann Crashes Rolls
@vettelisthebest I saw that race live on Ziggo sport.
The broadcaster directly said ow he's ok cause the rollbar prevented the helmet touching the sand trap.

To my personal opinion he was way wrong on this because those sand traps are build with too many sand and with the rain overnight it acted like quick sand .. when the car flipped over the roll bar dug in way too deep and Beckman could have easily ended up with head trauma wich luckily he escaped from.

Zandvoort is a good track but they have to look again at those sand traps ... specially with open wheelers they are very dangerous Smilie

chat icon Hungary2017 Start Crash Replays
What Vettel means is that race control is not consistant in giving penalty's in wich I MUST agree.

Bottas jammed the curbes twice, once in spain and once in baku resulting both times he ran into another car wich he did not get a penalty for.

Verstappen made a slight mistake, trying to get position back and slides underbreaking into his team mate with no intention while Bottas took the risk on purpose in Spain and Baku knowing he wouldn't make the corner in a normal race matter.

I think race control can only give penalty's to drivers in equal matters and this wasn't the case here looking back at earlier giving penalty's in the season.

By doing so drivers are not feeling comfortable in what they can do on a track within the limits to avoid a penalty.

There was another issue with Alonso and Saintz in the race after the safety car period were no further action was granted while Saintz pushed Alonso off track on purpose.

So .. what are the rules than or will we make up rules every single race compared to wich drives does what on track ?? crap !!

Sometimes you just don't want to be on a certain part of the track but got involved in a crash you didn't intend.

Two cars behind him are battling and one hit Detavernier wich causes him te spin and causes a small mayhem.

chat icon Oschersleben2017 FP Florsch Almost Hits Safety Truck Onboard
@Lucasjeha Can't go along with that.

If there was any footage inside the car of Dale Earnheart's crash and the family was holding the pictures back to blame it on the car or the organisation there could be a law suit against Nascar in wich way they can't defend themself.

An organisation always wants to examine any footage to determ who is to blame for any crash before footage is released to the public.

In this case I find it a good case because she could have blamed the organisation only for having a safety truck on track while driving at pretty high speed .. also she lied about the fine wich was 5000 euro's and not 20.000 what she said on twitter, her action would have bring the Adac organisation in discredid.

chat icon Oschersleben2017 FP Florsch Almost Hits Safety Truck Onboard
@metallica101 So I'm not so great into German language but for what I understood is she took the pictures from the onboard herself without permission from the Adac organisation and put the onboard tape on her own youtube channel.

Then she falsly claimed the fine she was given was 20.000 euro's instead of 5.000.

She is now under probation for the rest of the season and can be excluded from the series by doing such thing again.

Her case will also been handed over to the German autosport board (DMSB) for further investigation.

The bizarre thing is that she did not got any penalties for failing to slow down under red flag conditions.

chat icon Kentucky2006 Xfinity Fuller Huge Crash Red Flag
Jeff was involved in an incredible accident at the Kentucky Speedway on June 17, 2006 when he swerved to avoid Jason Leffler's spinning car and ended up hitting the inside wall at almost full speed. The car practically imploded upon impact and then burst into flames briefly. Despite the car hitting the wall on the right side, the left side came apart. Amazingly, he never lost consciousness but the car's roof had to be cut off to extract him. He was taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation and amazingly only a broken wrist and finger. He was released the next day. They determined that the implosion of the car was due to a faulty roll cage which failed during the crash.

chat icon Azerbaijan2017 Vettel Hits Hamilton Behind Safety Car

My decision would be .. Hamilton scrapped out of the results for dangerous driving and Vettel getting a 3 race penaly for unsportsman behaviour.

I must give Stroll some credit here ..
It's a 90 degree blind corner so looking in the mirrors it's hard to detect if a car is next to you.
second .. an opponent must be level or in front of the front tyre to do an overtaking pass, Perez wasn't even close to that and dive bombt the inside on the curve leaving no room whatsoever.
You can't blame Stroll for being a rookie on a young age, racing is doing up experience and takes quite a while specially in F1.
Maybe the one thing you can blame him for is his lack of driver awareness, hopefully he will learn from his mistakes soon otherwise I see him ending up just like Magnusen did at McLaren a few years back Smilie

Call it a kind of fetish but I always wondering how crashes happened and what caused the death, many I know from memory but some like this one are hard to find some info on.

I remembering something about this crash I read a long time ago that a wheel of the car of Lynch hit the head of Kern, Kern died on instant from head trauma but nothing I can find about that these days .. it was many years ago on the internet I read it but maybe it might not all be true what I am saying here.

Sad thing is that a drivers head is what causing the most death, brain trauma, broken neck, hitting by cars or debris is the main reason a driver loses his life Smilie

chat icon Sun Valley 1968 Kern Fatal Crash
Sun Valley Speedway, Indiana 1968.

A race that was known from 1962 to 1971 as the "little" 500 and was raced with USAC sprint cars, here is some info about the crash ..

The accident started when Steve Lehnert of North Olmstead, Ohio got sideways coming out of turn two on lap 208. Kern, driving the Roger Hegg Ford, slid into Lehnert and was, in turn, broadsided by 1967 co-champion Cy Fairchild. Fairchild’s ride careened into the infield and about that time, Chuck Lynch of Springfield, Ill, crashed into Kern’s mount, rode up over the cockpit of the Minnesota sprinter and flipped one and half times. Lynch machine came down its side, rolled up onto its wheels and burst into flames. The fire was quickly extinguished and Lynch escaped without any burns. Both Kern and Lynch were rushed to St. John's Hospital where Kern died of his injuries and Lynch was treated from cuts and bruises of the left arm and shoulder and then released.
