2006
Asian Formula Three star Tyson Sy’s death-defying crash in the last round of the series last month at the Zhuhai International Circuit in China continues to haunt him.

Aside from coughing up nearly P2 million, not P1 million as earlier reported, to rebuild his Dallara 304 nearly smashed to pieces when he slammed into Speedtech Asia teammate Gaby dela Merced’s stalled car, Sy will have to shell out an additional $2,000 as fine for "disregarding the double yellow flag" in effect during lap 8 of the 12-lap race.

The same fine has been slapped on Briton Dillon Battistini of JA Motorsports whose blocking maneuver on Sy in that fateful lap of Round 5 forced the 18-year-old Filipino racing star to swerve to his right onto Dela Merced’s car that had stalled in front of the grandstand a lap earlier.

The Hong Kong Automobile Association, one of the bodies that has jurisdiction over the race, had initially wanted to fine the two $5,000 each and their points earned in the race — 12 for Sy (third) and 15 for Battistini (second) — be excluded from the standings.

The two, however, appealed to the Automobile Association of the Philippines, the body sanctioning the AF3 races, and got a reprieve.

Jun Espino, a member of the committee on motor sports of the AAP, yesterday said the two were fined for "disregarding the double yellow flag during the race because of unsafe racing conditions.

"When a yellow flag is being waved by race marshals, this means the drivers must slow down and be ready to stop, if the need arises. However, after a thorough review of the tapes of the race, it was very clear that Tyson and Dillon had no intention to slow down."

Instead, they even went faster," said Espino, also a member of the three-man board of stewards supervising the race.

The reprieve on the points earned during Round 5 means Sy will go into Round 6 with his series-leading 87 points and 21-point lead over Battistini intact. The Briton, meanwhile, continues to enjoy a four-point lead over Filipino Dado Pena of Team Goddard and Irishman Ali Jackson of Aran Racing who are tied for third and fourth places with 52 points each.

The Winton Formula Ford one would be from 1992 (Partington's name is mentioned in the broadcast.)

It could be from 1992/1996, yes. I don't think the guy who flipped was him though.

The Australian Formula Ford Series only went to Winton from 92-94 in that timeframe. His description of the crash doesn't match up as far as the whole upside down in the fence thing goes which is the issue. If you invert the video you do get a grainy look at the car's number, which looks to me like #70 which is what Crompton said his number was.

Well, in fact he had the #70 only in 92, but the car looks different in the photos i saw on his site. To me this one is semi-solved. For sure it's Winton 1992, but the driver isn't that certain. I mean, i can't read the number on the car and also Crompton isn't sure in the small piece of footage that we have

That's Cameron Partington if the commentator is correct.

If Partington ended upside down in the fence he'd be dead. How many flips at Winton can you have? After 20+ years anyone's memory can be a little off ;)

The strange backstraight crash at Watkins Glen is 1987 Atlantic East. Driver is Jeremy Hill. Car sponsor is Robert sth and it's listed as Robert Motors @ OldRacingCars. Grid position would be suitable too. Can't be anyone else, car field was much smaller in 1989 and after that.

You're right..


Can we agree on one thing: The last corner looks like a left, the first like a right hander, right?
