Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.

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
