Going to try and contribute as many V8 Supercars crashes I can

Post by AussieRacer5 » 2 years ago

So I found this website while browsing for some old images relating to American stock car and Indycar crashes and was pleasantly suprised at how much useful info i've found, I noticed there is only 1 entry for the Australian V8 Supercars Championship, being Mark Porter's tragic accident in 2006. Being Australian myself i've decided I'm going to start compiling photos of accidents from this series, most crashes are on youtube and have probably been seen however as the point of the database is more for a collection, I thought that it could use some more V8 Supercars stuff, I presume I should just post these in the Touring Car crash photo thread, and hopefully i can contribute some good stuff! :twothumbs:

Cool. We've got a lot of stuff on here from older Australian racing which can go on there if you're interested, and I've got some more recent Bathurst photos from the 90s and early 2000s era which I'm going to post in the thread when I have the time/feel like it (I don't think I'm able to upload stuff directly to the database)
