Le Mans - 1969 - John Woolfe fatal crash

Soon after the start the poor handling of the 917 and the inexperience of the driver resulted in a drama: the death of British driver John Woolfe on lap 1 when his private Porsche 917 crashed at Maison Blanche. Woolfe was killed, probably due the fact that he had not bothered to put on his safety belt. This was likely done because of the style of the traditional start used at Le Mans until that year, in which drivers were required to run across the track to their cars, climb in and get it started as quickly as possible to pull away from the grid. Woolfe likely sacrificed strapping his safety belts in order to gain a better start. The nearly full fuel tank from Woolfe's car became dislodged and landed in front of the oncoming Ferrari 312P of Chris Amon. Amon ran over it, causing it to explode under his car, which led to his retirement. The race was stopped for 2 hours due to these two first lap incidents, but was eventually restarted.

Indy 500 - 1982 - Gordon Smiley fatal crash
In 1982, record speeds were being set during qualification for the 1982 Indianapolis 500. Both Kevin Cogan and Rick Mears set new single lap and 4-lap records in their attempts. Smiley went out for a qualifying attempt an hour later. On the second warm up lap his car began to oversteer while rounding the third turn, causing the car to slightly slide. When Smiley steered right to correct this, the front wheels gained grip suddenly, sending his car directly across the track and into the wall nose first at nearly 200 mph (320 km/h). The impact shattered and completely disintegrated the March chassis, causing the fuel tank to explode, and sent debris — including Smiley's exposed body — tumbling hundreds of feet across the short-chute connecting turns 3 and 4. Smiley died instantly from massive trauma inflicted by the severe impact. His death was the first at Indy since 1973, and to date, the last driver to die during qualifying. CART medical director Steve Olvey discussed the crash in his autobiography, Rapid Response while on staff:

1969 Ferrari 312P (Roaring V12 3.0l at Le Mans)
I've said it before and I'll keep saying it to the end of my days, this is one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen in my entire life. The Porsche 917 may be one of my all time favourites but this car just looks perfect to me. Nothing wrong with it. But the looks isn't the only fantastic thing with this car, it's powered by a V12 3.0l engine that sounds amazing. It just roars its way through the woods of the most famous circuit on the planet: Le Mans. I tried to get as many angles on this car as I possibly could but they only race about 4 times and it is never guaranteed that the cars hold it together during all those sessions. But as I said, I did the best I could and I really hope it's enough for you guys to enjoy the video. Consider subscribing if you enjoyed this video, a like/comment are always appreciated as well.

Buenos Aires 1000Km - 1971 - Ignazio Giunti fatal accident
Ignazio Giunti (30 August 1941 - 10 January 1971) was an Italian racing driver who made his name in saloon and Sports Car Racing in the late 1960s. Tragedy struck in his first drive in 1971 whilst racing in the 1000 km Buenos Aires race, when his Ferrari 312PB prototype ploughed into the back of the Matra 660 of Jean-Pierre Beltoise, who was pushing the car along the track after it had run out of fuel. The impact and the subsequent fire gave the popular Italian no chance of survival.





F1 - 1955 Monaco GP - Ascari Accident
At the start Fangio managed to get ahead at the first corner and was followed by Castellotti, Moss and Ascari. Farina was an early casualty with a damaged wheel which needed replacing. Castellotti was able to hold off Moss for the first five laps but by then Fangio was too far ahead for Moss to be able to catch him. Ascari scrambled past Castellotti but the two began to battle and Behra joined in and it was the Frenchman who finally emerged ahead. Castellotti had to pit because of a deflating tire and Behra had to call in for more oil. Then Fangio stopped, the victim of a broken axle. Moss remained in the lead until the closing laps when his engine blew up. At almost the same moment Ascari, perhaps distracted by Moss's problems, crashed at the chicane and went straight into the harbor, through hay bales and sandbags. Fortunately he was not hurt and soon popped up and swan to safety. This left Trintignant in the lead and although Castelotti tried hard to catch him, the Frenchman came home the winner. Castellotti was second with Maserati's Cesare Perdisa third in Behra's car, the two men having switched cars in mid-race when Behra hit trouble.

Le Mans 1969 Part 2 - Race
Le Mans 24 Hours 1969 - La Ronde Infernale Part 2 of 4. The race gets underway. Jacky Ickx was opposed to the traditional Le Mans start which he considered to be dangerous, he slowly walked across the track to his machine, instead of running. He locked the safety belt carefully and thus was the last to start the race, chasing the field. In lap one, a tragic event proved that Ickx was right: private driver John Woolfe had a fatal accident in his new and powerful 917 and fellow countryman Willy Mairesse had an accident which ended his career. Neither of them had taken time to belt himself in.





9 Days in Summer (full)
Courtesy of Mike Banks "One of, if not the classic motorsport film Nine Days in Summer is the definitive story of the development of an iconic racing car and record-breaking engine. Design guru Colin Chapman and engine supremo Keith Duckworth came together to produce the now legendary Lotus 49, powered by the fabled Ford DFV which would go on to become the most successful engine in Formula One history. The car went from concept to racetrack in just months and, amazingly, was victorious on four occasions during the 1967 Grand Prix season, including its debut. Nine Days in Summer, introduced by motorsport expert Simon Taylor, charts this extraordinary achievement in comprehensive detail. Incredible full-colour race action from nine Formula One rounds combines with fascinating footage of Cosworth and Lotus craftsmen painstakingly creating these stunning examples of automotive art. The film also allows you unprecedented access to Chapman, Duckworth and legendary drivers Jim Clark and Graham Hill. Nine Days of Summer, from the Ford Archive Gems series, is the ultimate guide to the creation of a motorsport icon and a milestone in motorsport film-making."
