F1 - 1979 Zandvoort GP - G. Villeneuve driving on two wheels
Gilles Villeneuve, who made it through the first lap ahead of Jean-Pierre Jabouille, passed Jones at Tarzan on lap 11. He gave the lead back to Jones when he spun on lap 47. On lap 51, just after passing the pits, Villeneuve's left rear tyre exploded causing him to spin. He regained control to begin one of the wildest laps in history. He drove an entire lap on two tyres, the right front was in the air and the left rear was shredding rubber and sparking with the pavement. Reaction was mixed. It was either an act of the ultimate competitor not wanting to give up or an irresponsible, emotional decision. Either way he was out as his suspension was too damaged to rejoin the race.
F1 - 1980 Imola GP - Gilles Villeneuve crash
The 1980 Italian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on September
14, 1980 at the Imola Circuit in Italy. It was the twelfth race of the 1980
Formula One season.
This was the only World Championship Italian Grand Prix that was not held
at Monza, however Imola was used the following year to host the San Marino
Le Mans - 1981 - Jean-Louis Lafosse fatal crash
The race was marred by the death of Jean-Louis Lafosse, who violently
crashed his Rondeau in the early stages on the Hunaudieres while following
the Lola T600 of de Villota/Edwards/Fernandez. No cause has ever been
determined although a piece of debris is seen flying away from the car just
before the Rondeau suddenly steers to the right, along with pre-crash
photographs showing evidence of damage from an off-track excursion,
suggesting suspension failure as a possible cause.
Thierry Boutsen, who would go on to drive in Formula One, had earlier
escaped a large accident in the second hour, destroying his WM-Peugeot but
without causing injury to himself; a marshal was fatally injured in the
Flamethrower Ferrari F1 126C2 ex Gilles Villeneuve - EPIC!

Modena Trackdays on circuit Spa Francorchamps. This Ferrari 126CK was the

qualifying trim and around 600bhp in races. In this video you can see it in
action with some amazing flames coming out from the Exhaust pipes.

Le Mans - 1959 - Highlights
The 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 27th Grand Prix of Endurance, and took
place on June 20 and 21 1959. It was also the fourth round of the World
F1 - 1980 Monaco GP - Derek Daly crash
The 1980 Monaco Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Monaco on
May 18, 1980. It was the sixth round of the 1980 Formula One season. The
race was the 38th Monaco Grand Prix. The race was held over 76 laps of the
3.34-kilometre circuit for a total race distance of 254 kilometres.
It was won by Carlos Reutemann driving a Williams FW07B. The win was
Reutermann's tenth Formula One victory and his first since the 1978 United
States Grand Prix. He also became the fifth winner in six races of the 1980
season. Reutemann won by 1 minute and 13 seconds over French driver Jacques
Laffite driving Ligier JS11/15. Third was Brazilian driver Nelson Piquet
driving a Brabham BT49. Piquet's third place moved him past René Arnoux
and Alan Jones into the lead of the world championship for the first time.
The race however is remembered for a memorable and spectacular crash at the
start of the race when Derek Daly collided with Bruno Giacomelli's Alfa
Romeo 179, which sent Daly's Tyrrell 010 flying over Giacomelli and landing
between teammate Jean-Pierre Jarier and Alain Prost's McLaren M29. All four
drivers were out on the spot, but none suffered any serious injury. Jan
Lammers also collected damage in his ATS D4 but was able to continue. The
accident was particularly disappointing for McLaren after John Watson
failed to qualify for Monaco's shortened 20 car grid.
Fourth was West German driver Jochen Mass driving an Arrows A3 one lap down
on Reutemann ahead of Canadian Gilles Villeneuve in a Ferrari 312T5. A
further lap down in sixth was dual-World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi in a
Fittipaldi F7. For Mass and Fittipaldi it would be last world championship
points they would collect.
Reutemann's win put Williams in the lead of the constructor's points race
by five points over Ligier.
F1 - 1975 Montjuïc GP - James Hunt accident
After the first-corner madness ceased, James Hunt was shown as the leader.
Shockingly, Andretti had managed to keep going, and was running in second.
John Watson was in third, Rolf Stommelen was fourth, Brambilla fifth, and
Carlos Pace sixth.
On lap four, the engine in Jody Scheckter's Tyrrell blew, and the oil
dumping onto the circuit caused Alan Jones and Mark Donohue to crash. Three
laps later, Hunt also slipped in the oil and crashed. The top three had
become Andretti, Watson, and Stommelen. Watson's car suffered from
vibrations and dropped out. Andretti's rear suspension lasted only seven
more laps before it failed, causing him to crash out of the lead.
Jean-Pierre Jarier and Brambilla stopped to change tyres, whilst Tom Pryce
and Tony Brise tangled. Stommelen was now in the top spot, followed by
Pace, Ronnie Peterson, Jochen Mass, and Ickx. On lap 24, Peterson was out
after he tangled with François Migault while trying to lap the Frenchman.
F1 - 1967 Monaco GP - Lorenzo Bandini fatal crash
In May 1967 Bandini was racing at the Monaco Grand Prix, running second to
Denny Hulme on the 82nd lap, when he lost control of his car at the harbour
chicane. He had just entered an S-turn when his Ferrari's left rear wheel
hit the guard rail, sending him into an erratic skid. It impacted a light
pole and overturned. The car hit straw bales which lined the harbour side,
rupturing the fuel tank, and sparks ignited the fuel as the car rolled
over, with Bandini trapped beneath it. Marshals flipped his car upright and
pulled Bandini, unconscious, out from the flaming Ferrari. It is thought
that, during the effort to right the overturned car, gasoline leaked on the
hot brake line or the Exhaust pipe and
exploded. A second fire occurred when the gas tank exploded after Bandini
had been pulled away from the Ferrari.
Bandini's burns were extensive, with third degree burns covering more than
70% of his body. The worst burns were on his arms and legs with slight
burns on his face. Doctors were forced to wait for twenty-four to
forty-eight hours before resolving to move Bandini to a hospital in Lyon,
France, which specialized in the treatment of burns. Other options
considered, by the doctors, were flying in skin grafts from Italy or a
specialist burns unit team from East Grinstead in England. The burns caused
severe lesions. He also sustained a chest wound and ten chest fractures.
Three days later, Bandini succumbed to his injuries. He died at Princess
Grace Polyclinic Hospital in Monte Carlo. There were concerns about the
promptness of Bandini's rescue. However, investigators from the
Principality of Monaco ruled on 10 May "that the security operation had
functioned properly." The straw bales, having been banned from all Formula
1 races in response to the accident, were replaced by an extended
guard-rail the following year.
Bandini was buried in Reggiolo on 13 May. 100,000 people attended the
