Different angle of Fred Gibson/Barry Seton's Ford Falcon GTHO on the tow truck after he rolled in 1969 race:
Hahnle/Peter Wherrett (driving at the time) flipped their Alfa in 1969, but they got back in the race eventually:
Two unknown accidents, one occured with a Mini, pretty certain the first one was in either '67 or '68:
Smith/Haylen Cooper S in 1966:
Various angles of the 1969 crackup:
Christine Cole/Lyn Keefe in 1969:
Dennis Cribbin in 1969:
Bill Stanley was really pushing in 1971, note the hilarious caption at the bottom:
Bill Brown #22/Fred Gibson #8 in 1972:
Bill Brown's car after he rolled in the '69 race, starting an enormous pileup:

Johnnie Walker in a creek at Sandown in 1970 or 1971, probably in a series production race judging by the number having a class letter beside it. It might have been the Sandown enduro if that was case, if so it would be the 1971 edition as he DNF'd in a Torana like the photo that year, whereas he was in a Valiant in 1970. I suppose it could have also been in the South Pacific Touring Series or another non-championship race as well.

Colin Bond rolled in the '72 race. Note how the car looks way more damaged in the last pic then in the first two pics. That's because according to Bond, the tow truck driver was a Ford man. When he was towing it back to the pits after the race he deliberately bashed the car against the wall in an attempt to destroy it more then it was.

-----mattbull wrote: ↑11 years agoBack in 1989 one of the support races at the British Grand Prix was for the one make Mini Metro series! Former Metro 6R4 Rally star, Tony Pond, took part in the event in a celebrity car but he had this scary moment at the complex (which was less complex than it is now!). As you can see from the first pic, Pond spun and petrol seems to be pouring out of the right wheel arch area. In all probability it was the leak that caused him to spin, obviously the fire that engulfed the car was a concern, but it very quickly subsided and the excellent marshalls were very quickly on the scene to deal with the flame that was left. Pond had largely retired from competitive driving at this point, being left high and dry when the Group B rally cars were banned from the sport (the Metro 6R4 very much part of the Group B era). On 6th June 1990 he teamed up with Austin Rover and took a standard production Rover 827 Vitesse around the Isle of Man TT Motor Bike course, being the first (and only) man to average over 100mph on in such a car. Unfortunately Pond succumbed to cancer in 2002.

My memory suggests that the drivers name was something along the lines of Paul Donantonio, the series was certainly the Renault 5 Challenge and I do recall there being contact with another competitor that lead to the crash. Thankfully Paul, if that was his name, was uninjured.

Harvey Townson (32) and Adie Hawkins (98) are the main victims of a first corner tangle which spears them both left into the tyre wall at the bottom of Paddock. Luckily there were no injuries.

Also, there was a similar (albeit much smaller incident) at the same spot earlier in the day in the Dunlop Super2 Series where Macauley Jones got turned around and was t-boned hard by his teammate, with two other cars being involved.

I can't solve it, maybe it's already here, I don't know.
Aiden Moffat went off avoiding a rabbit at Thruxton during yesterday's test session. This was the result.
