The Crash Photos Database!
Photos Database is an ongoing project intended to be the most
complete catalogue of motorsport crash photos ever created. It is to
provide racing historians, archivists and enthusiasts with photographs and
information on accidents and incidents from the start of motor racing in
1894 up to the modern day.
Many of our
contributors began collecting photographs of motor racing accidents
in the early-2000s. Almost all images were discovered online, provided
freely through websites or forums. Others were scanned from long out-of-date,
or hard to come by publications. A small number are sourced from private
collections. Locating the images has been a nearly fifteen-year
long process. Some photos took several years to identify. We have
taken the decision to host all images on our server because the
internet is an ever-changing animal. URLs change, or
websites may only survive for short periods before disappearing forever
along with all the information.
