260 MPH Crash -- In Car Footage
During the October 2010 Bonneville World Finals, Danny Thompson (driver of the world's fastest Mustang) lifted off of the salt at approximately 264.7 MPH. Insufficient downforce sent the car flipping end over end into the air. It travelled over eleven hundred feet before touching down again and continuing to tumble. Danny suffered no injuries, nor did his iPhone 4, which was tucked into the front of his uniform. It was a testament to safety equipment and the astounding work performed by the crew at Hajek Racing.
Legendary Driver Frank Lockhart Killed - Thrown from Car
Legendary Driver Frank Lockhart Killed - Thrown from Car (1928). Lockhart was an American automobile racing driver, and Indianapolis 500 winner, and considered a legend in the sport by many historians. On April 25, 1928, Lockhart's Stutz Black Hawk Special streamliner reached 198.29 mph (319.1 km/h) on a warmup run on Daytona Beach, Florida. On Lockhart's return pass the Black Hawk Special cut a tire (probably on a seashell), went out of control and tumbled violently across the sand, throwing Lockhart from the car and killing him instantly. The film shows the moment it happened.
