Latest post of the previous page:

1911 Glidden Tour, not 1912. Or have you discovered an error? Please check. I picked the 12 images out of the 47 which were relevant, and you may rest assured I didn't omit any.

No error there. My transcription mistake. 1911 is correct.

Thank you again. Jones' accident is in the CPdB and updated. The others will follow asap.




@theracer120/@Motorsportrace/@PTRACER:

Do you have any of the above?

I have a total of 17 different pictures of Slotemaker's accident. Will get them in the 'correct' order and post them below.

I'll have a look, although I usually don't save crash photos from the Touring/Saloon Cars thread (and Stock cars too), unless they are important.

I suspect most of the autopics photos I posted are still available at a different link, we just need to search for them. I don't think I still have any of the other ones saved unfortunately but a lot of them would have been taken off the internet from places such as autopics.

Me neither, and I deeply regret that.

Hard to say for certain. From 8:42 onwards.





Thank you for the pictures!

His name was in fact Eric Ancich. And the car should have been an Abarth 600 (not 500).

Ron Hodgson or Bob Beasley's Mini getting towed in the '66 race. Not sure if they crashed, but they were one of the race's 12 retirements, and one of the 8 Mini's to retire.

Yup, they certainly did crash. From 6:58 onwards.

Not so much a crash but more of a spin, but I liked the pic so decided to post it out of interest knowing we have a few Volvo fans here....

Image

Volvos everywhere! Several 122S sedans were let loose at Sydney’s new Amaroo Park circuit when it hosted its first open meeting in April 1967. Gerry Lister (left) and David Seldon (right) fight for the lead as import manager Max Winkless has a huge spin behind them. The coverage by Racing Car News magazine was most enthusiastic. Titled ‘Volvos Star at Amaroo Premiere’ the race report proudly stated: “Boy, those Volvos! In two races they electrified the crowd, leant on each other, upset the stewards and…must do it all again. It was dangerous without being foolish and incidentally a fine advertisement for Volvos.” Probably not the sort of advertising the conservative and safety-conscious Swedes back in Gothenburg had in mind, though.


However I did find the following Volvo crash pic. from Bathurst 1966.
Things did not end well for the Lister/Porter Volvo at Bathurst in 1966, after Porter moved over at Skyline to allow a faster car past but could not regain his line, lost control and spun heavily into the fence in the Esses. The Lister/Porter Volvo used its extra speed to run strongly in the early stages of the race before Porter had a huge spin at the end of Skyline on lap 52 of 130. The car slammed backwards into the wooden sleeper fence in the Esses, where it became wedged and could not be recovered. You have to feel for Porter as he stands at the rear of the car assessing the heavy damage and thinking that perhaps he’d been too polite. Check out the big kinks in the roof panel and C pillar.

Image

Both of these images and descriptions come from an interesting and detailed article with plenty of pics all about the (many) Volvo 122S early racing history in Australia.

I've probably got the Slotemaker and the Ömer, but I doubt I saved anything else.

I'll look for those plus the McCluggage video.
I can't find the video, so I'm going to add it to the list of lost items. I don't have wildturnip's vidcap, but may have the accident in a compilation, which is probably why I haven't been able to find it on my HD.

No, but I found these on the 1973 1000 race programme which is available online.
