Some probably fatal crashes to identify (VIDEO)

Post by Sedre » 1 year ago

My friend Isbel Quiroz recently send me these crashes in hope to identify them. I'm sure that some of them were already identified, but I don't remember where.

Probably, some of these accidents are fatal.

#1:


#2 (0:18-0:28) and #3 (0:32-0:36)


#4 (2:30-2:35)


#5 (1:54-1:59)


#6 (0:42-0:57)


#7 (0:30-0:39)


#8


#9


#10


#11


#12


#13


#14


#15


Two more videos I will upload later.

Most of them were already posted, i think from Jesper. I can't remember if there was any fatality though. anyway, the number 14 i'm pretty sure isn't fatal, but i can't give you any more information right now. I'll do a little research and see what i can do.

#3 is Legion Ascot, both the flying wheel and the roll. My topic about that track is unfortunately a very long time underway.

#6 is from 1930. It's in the video graveyard topic, which is in the prep area. soon to be added here, alongside photo graveyard. It collects all the unID'd bits and pieces, from the removed IDing topics.

#8-#12 and #14 are in this graveyard topic, also. These videos simply refuse to allow themselves to be solved...

The #15 however, is not, so we must have managed to solve that. It must be in crash videos, somewhere. I cannot remember who it was.

That's all I can do, here.

Can you specify which is which, vis-à-vis USAC season race?

viewtopic.php?f=80&t=14807

Different cars, different car numbers (#8 red in time trials, and I think #47 black in other one).

http://www.ultimateracinghistory.com/ra ... aceid=6248 <--- June round.

http://www.ultimateracinghistory.com/ra ... aceid=6253 <--- August round. Death of Hagemeyer.

I've no clue which is which. @Ferner?
