chat icon 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 Smilie

chat icon Monaco2018 Serie D Rowley and Delbene Crash
The yellow flag couldn't stop Delbene from crashing into Rowley as it came out right after Rowley crashed.

Sad to see 2 historic cars get crashed out Smilie

chat icon Monaco2018 Serie G Group 2 Qualifying Lajoux and FolchRusinol Crash
It's sad to see so many unknown drivers driving an old F1 car and just think they can handle all that horse power.

And it makes me really angry to see those drivers crashing those fantastic historic cars .. to be honest the cars are ment to be driven but only in the hands of drivers that can handle the cars. Smilie

@neteye well that's just bad luck that it happened in one of the most dangerous corners at Spa with a speed up to 280KMH Smilie

Man .. identical to fittipaldi's crash Smilie

chat icon 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.

chat icon Belgium2018 Qualifying Fittipaldi Big Crash Pure Sounds
@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.

Hope he get back soon.

chat icon 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 Smilie

chat icon 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.

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 Macau2017 Hegarty Horror Crash Amateur
no run off .. no grass .. no dirt .. no brains still in macau for the organisation to allow motorbikes to race there .. this has got to stop !!

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

@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 Smilie

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.

chat icon 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

chat icon 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.

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 Spa2017 QR Start Hook Detavernier Vogt McKansy Earle Crash
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.

The black Audi of Detavernier ran wide, almost ran out of road and got back on track with a slower speed.
Two cars behind him are battling and one hit Detavernier wich causes him te spin and causes a small mayhem.

Just a blink of an eye and your race is finished Smilie

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.

Speaking about a bad hair day Smilie

chat icon Oschersleben2017 FP Florsch Almost Hits Safety Truck Onboard
@vettelisthebest That explaines, didn't know about the red flag condition but seeing the video a few times back now .. there is indeed a red flag on the right hand waved .. about 2 to 3 seconds into the video.

I guess the safety workers assumed it was save to assist the stranded car as the red had come out .. Smilie

Some tracks really take safety measures not serious enough.

There should have been at least 3 tire racks tight together and much higher to create a saver wall in front of those trees.

Those lose tyres now worked only as a ramp and did not take any impact whatsoever, he was lucky not to hit one of those trees Smilie
