Huge crash in a 73 Mach 1 Mustang in Targa Tasmania 2012
This is the entire stage and huge crash we had on TS10 Elephant Saddle in Targa Tasmania 2012. We had MANY requests for a slow motion replay of the in-car footage so here it is. You have to wait for the end, but it's probably worth it. We have been asked many times what caused the accident, and it's a typical concoction of many factors. But ultimately it was wrong tire selection. We used to run Bridgestone RE55, then they stopped making them. They produced the RE11 which we were told were an improvement and a direct replacement. Unfortunately we could not get any info about them except for what we were told by our supplier. But when the info came out, they are a hot track day tire, not to be used in cold or wet. When I downshifted, the rear lost traction but gave no feedback at all - no shudder, no squeal, etc. and then when the road camberchanged, or the surface changed, or I adjusted the wheel ... the rear was already in a spin. The main thing is that both Dad (navigator) and I are OK, and no other crews were involved. The car shell is badly damaged, but the running gear is OK. We have a new shell on its way, and we will start the rebuilding process and get Junior back on the road. It might take a year, it might take two years. It might take 10 years, but Junior will be back on the road. So enjoy the footage, excuse the damage to a beautiful car, and please leave nice comments.

Zakspeed Ford Turbo Capri
Zakspeed Ford turbo Capri beim AvD Oldtimer GP 2012 auf dem Nürburgring. Peter Zakowski fährt das Original Meisterschaftsauto von 1981, mit dem Klaus Ludwig damals gewann. Das Fahrzeug ist mit dem kleinen Motor der Division 2 bestückt mit 1,4l Hubraum. In beiden Rennen sah Zakowski die Zielflagge wegen technischer Probleme nicht. Im Rennen 1 bedrängt er Oliver Mathai im Porsche 935 und im Rennen 2 räumt er binnen kürzester Zeit das Feld von hinten auf. Sowohl nach dem Training als auch nach dem ersten Rennen wurde am Fahrzeug umfangreich gearbeitet. Der Ladedruck ist noch nicht eingestellt und deshalb hat P.Zakowski die Hand häufiger mal am "Dampfrad". Vom turbo Capri wurden insgesamt fünf Fahrzeuge gebaut. Ein Fahrzeug wurde zerstört, eines zu einem Mustang umgebaut, ein Fahrzeug wurde von Herbert Stenger bei Bergrennen eingesetzt, ein Fahrzeug baut Stefan Mücke in Berlin wieder auf und hier eben das 1981er Meisterschaftsauto bei Zakspeed. onboard race1 at 05:35 onboard race 2 at 12:14
