Doing a great job so far. Just wondering, are you planning to omit any crashes from the CPDB? There's at least one crash in every single race these days, and I'm not so sure it would be historically significant to record each one...
I suppose it depends on the type of motorsport each contributor is handing. It's easier in my case because stock car races tend to have large car counts, meaning multi-car incidents are more probable to occur than in F1, sports car/endurance racing, rally cars, etc. There's still plenty of major/significant stock car crashes I still need to record before I have to tackle that issue.

I've added all the non-championship F1 (F2 in 1952-1953) drivers fatalities we have.

Excellent job. I'm waiting on some photos from Jesper of the Herbert Mackay-Fraser/Bill Whitehouse crashes, otherwise my list of F1 driver fatalities is also complete and ready to go on. Plus I keep finding new British crashes which I need to add.

Quick message for DaleJuniorFan - Some of the images you're posting are incredibly graphic (McTavish, Jacobi etc.), could you please insert these Warning messages in the appropriate places? viewtopic.php?f=67&t=13751 Cheers man :wave:

Our great friends of Documentingreality are still leeching our photos, this time from our database:
http://www.documentingreality.com/forum ... ex311.html
And you can see their website only if you pay.
No mention at all, obviously, about our website.

I know, but we've made a lot of efforts to find those pictures, and they're not giving credit.
But that's not a problem for me.
The problem is: Documentingreality users need to pay a subscription to see those photos.
Some of them even signed up and paid only to see that thread.
And they don't know they can find those pictures here for free.

Well, it's a waste of time, I suppose. Back to work...

Taking the content and forcing others to pay for it...Well, that's plain wrong. That's illegal.
