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 a poor change down to 3rd
that tipped the scales, and the road conditions didn't allow me to catch it
like I had many times before. I won't bother with listing the contributing
factors because it may sound like I (the driver) am looking for excuses!
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
So enjoy the footage, excuse the damage to a beautiful car, and please
leave nice comments.

Nordschleife / Accident / Safety
One lap on the Nordschleife and some safety tips. Please read the tips in
the end or below. Thanks !
Take it easy. Don't go too fast. This applies especially to the more
experienced track drivers and racers. You might know how fast you can go
around a corner, but first you have to know EXACTLY what the corner is.
Race drivers often have the worst crashes as they enter a corner on the
limit, only to find the corner turns the OTHER way and they have nothing in
Stick to the right! The rules for overtaking on public driving are very
simple. Overtake on the left. Go slow on the right. This is regardless of
which direction the curve is taking you. If you're on the right-hand side
and doing your own speed, you don't even have to worry about who's behind
Check your mirrors. If checking the mirrors is becoming too difficult for
you, then you're going too fast! Go back to the previous point in this list
and stick to the right...
Don't race. The easiest way to crash is to try and keep up with, or stay
ahead of another car.
Don't time. There's no reason to time your laps when you're on your first
100 or so. You'll only be disappointed!
Edit Sept. 2012:
Some people think I'm approaching too fast for the driver Flugplatz over
the hill toward Schwedencreuz. It is an opinion I respect. I am of the
opinion that the driver was seen myself in the mirror when I got out of the
second right hand corner at Flugplatz, as they have a responsibility to do
when faster vehicles / bikes is
closing. Notwithstanding, some of my intent with the video to show that one
can not "rely" on those who are ahead of you. I have been in countless
situations where a driver of so called "fast" cars are not aware of what
comes from behind, because they believe that they are among the fastest.
Even when I'm running a BTG round at 8 min. I have a certain focus on
what's happening behind me. As It should also be expected that one running
9-12 min. also should have had. If this is too much, you should keep to the
right with the flashers on.
I assume that those who speak out actually know the Nürburgring in
(Playstation heroes do not count) If not, it is virtually impossible for me
to bring up my point. Stay safe, and remember to keep an eye in the mirror
