Yes, no problem for that.PTRACER wrote:I think that was your idea in the first place, it's probably the best solution to the problem If the list of names is longer than say, 5 or 6, then don't bother to list them at all, just use the Description to say "X number of people were killed/hurt/whatever". The pictures themselves are the most important aspect of this project, the data is presented in a simple form so people can find the photos easily.
'Pierre Levegh' should be sufficient for Le Mans 1955, but we should also list 'Lance Macklin' and 'Mike Hawthorne' under 'Driver(s)' as they were involved in the crash. I've filled some of this information into the database (Les Spangler for example) and added driver names where only the riding mechanic was listed. I have also simplified their names - people can look up their full, official names on other sites if required. I hope you're okay with this
That would include Castellotti, Anderson (we haven't anything about his crash, sadly), Depailler and De Angelis.PTRACER wrote:If you have all the information compiled and prepared for F1 crashes, please feel free to enter it into the database! Siffert has already been done, but it was a non-championship race so it's not to be included. Ricardo Rodriguez, no.
Castellotti, Cabianca, Anderson, Depailler, De Angelis etc. could be included, as there are only really half a dozen or so testing fatalities anyway.
Cabianca was testing a Formula Intercontinental car (and he was not preparing for a WDC event, as far as I know), so I wouldn't include him.
But, I don't know why, it sounds unfair (to me) to add testing crashes and not those who died during non-championship F1 races...
Let's hope someone will help us.PTRACER wrote:I'm currently writing an email about the database, which I will send out to all users today. I'm doing some more data entry first though.
