I have indexed all Nürburgring crashes, there are 115 crashes in total and I need help entering these into the database.

Some of them have already been saved to my computer for input and aren't listed here.

I started to sort out IDs of the F1 crashes. In most cases all you need to do is find out the car make/model. All sportscar crashes can be sorted out via RacingSportsCars.com. Most of the stuff you need is in this list already.

Who's going to help me?

1954 Hermann Lang
Technically a "spin", but it cut his engine, so Hermann Lang was out of the 1954 German GP at the Nürburgring, 6th rd. WDC, which also proved his farewell:

1972 Cevert Tyrrell 002
The Frenchman was going fast, without a doubt, but whether it was that fast we shall never know, for as he aviated over the brow after Pflanzgarten, he landed badly and crashed into the barrier, escaping unhurt but Tyrrell 002 was bent around the cockpit and the suspension units broken, entailing another extensive rebuild.

"In the 2nd round Lauda crashed at the Kesselchen-section. Due to a tyre failure (puncture?) the BRM went off the track, and hit an embankment, flew past a marshal's hut, and landed 350 metres away. Lauda broke his right wrist.".

The "burnt" was the car driven by Hans Soldeck in 1980 in D & W colors. For whatever reason, he spun from the line (Nordkehre) during the tests on the loop of the ring in 1980. The car started to fire and burned completely.

Wonderful, thank you!! I'll PM you the password to the database if I haven't already.

Do you want to split it 50/50? Do you want to do Sportscar crashes and I can do all the others?
