I pull the trusty pocketcam out just as the first few drops of rain fall on
Wehrseifen. An E46 driver loses control on the entry to the corner, and
ends up rolling all the way around. Race was the VLN #2 of 2012 and this
was only the second lap of a four-hour event!

F1 - 1969 Monaco GP - Race report
The entry for Monaco was much as normal although Jochen Rindt was still
recovering from breaking his nose in his crash in Barcelona and so Team
Lotus ran Richard Attwood as his replacement alongside Graham Hill. The
field was bolstered by the reappearance of Silvio Moser in an old Brabham
and Vic Elford running in an old Cooper-Maserati entered, aptly, by Antique
Automobiles. There had been considerable worry expressed since the crashes
in Barcelona about the high rear wings used on the cars and after the first
practice the CSI held a meeting and decided on an immediate ban on the
grounds of safety. The first session times were canceled and the qualifying
process started all over again. There were some gripes from the teams but
everyone got down to business and it was Jackie Stewart's Matra which
emerged on pole, ahead of Chris Amon's Ferrari. Jean-Pierre Beltoise in the
second Matra was third on the grid, ahead of Graham Hill while Jo Siffert
(Walker-Durlacher Lotus) and John Surtees (BRM) shared the third row. The
Brabhams of Jacky Ickx and Jack Brabham were on the fourth row, just ahead
of Piers Courage in Frank Williams's customer BT26.
Stewart took the lead at the start with Amon in pursuit. Beltoise was under
pressure from Hill and the Lotus driver moved to third on the third lap. By
lap 10 Stewart had a 10-second advantage. In the midfield Surtees suffered
a gearbox failure in the tunnel and was hit by Brabham. Both drivers
escaped injury. Six laps later Amon's Ferrari retired with a differential
failure and on lap 21 Beltoise's Matra suffered a driveshaft failure and
retired from third place. A lap later the leader Stewart had an identical
problem with his Matra and retired. This left Hill in the lead with a 12
second advantage over Ickx and Courage. The battle for second place
continued until the 49th lap when the Belgian retired with a rear
suspension failure, leaving Courage to finish an impressive second while
Siffert picked up third.
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
