Le Mans - 1972 - Jo Bonnier fatal crash
Jo Bonnier was involved in an accident on the straight between Mulsanne
Corner and Indianapolis at Le Mans in 1972 when his open-top Lola-Cosworth
T280 collided with a Ferrari Daytona driven by a Swiss amateur driver
Florian Vetsch. His car was catapulted into the trees and he was killed.
Fellow racer Vic Elford saw the Ferrari burning furiously, and pulled his
Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 over to the right side of the track and ran across the
track to the Ferrari, opening the door, attempting to get Vetsch out. But
Vetsch had already gotten out of the car and was on the side of the track
where Elford had parked his Alfa. Elford saw Vetsch and then saw the
wreckage of Bonnier's yellow Lola in the woods next to the track. According
to Elford, the last he saw of Bonnier's Lola was that it was "spinning into
the trees like a helicopter". Elford later handed off his Alfa to Helmut
Marko, but the gearbox froze solid and they dropped out of the race. Elford
later said "it was the first time in my racing career I'm glad my car
