1987 - Vallelunga - Yannick Dalmas's accident
Yannick Dalmas who had not taken full advantage of his pole position at the start was not unduly worried. For his cockpit he could see that Stefano Modena's car's handling was graudually disimproving, thus the young Frenchman carefully bided hi stime. Suddenly Modena came out of the quickest part of the circuit alone! In fact a rear suspension joint had broken sending Dalmas into the guardrail at nearly 150mph, speading panic amongst the pack following the leaders.

Miraculously he was almost unhurt apart from bruised kness and left hospital in the next morning.

A spokesman for Toyota, who have returned to the race for the first time in 13 years, said that Davidson was not seriously hurt. "He is walking, he is talking and he has gone to hospital," he said. Both Davidson's Toyota and the Ferrari of Perazzini were so badly damaged that they were ruled out of the rest of the race.

Two cars, the Pescarolo of Emmanuel Collard and the Honda with Briton Jonny Kane at the wheel started from the grid slip road due to last-minute mechanical problems. The start flag was waved by Takeshi Uchiyamada, vice-president of Toyota, who are represented by two cars driven initially by Stephane Sarrazine, who set off from the second row, and Austrian Alex Wurz.
