The thread was invented for this:
The wreck is pretty cool, but skip to 4:15 for the really amazing part.
No worries. I know you would at least make an effort. Was just thinking of the people who would naively post something thinking they were the first people in the world to see something.
Do you share an internet connection by any chance? I did a while ago and was trying to watch live F1 and my flatmate was torrenting a billion things in preparation for her holidays.
When this wreck happened live, I thought Larry Pearson and/or Charlie Glotzbach had died:
”Formula 3, Blandford, August 1949: Major Peter Braid was the man in command in this famous accident when competing in his F3 Cooper. You’d have thought that his military intelligence would have helped him know where he was going, especially as the circuit was laid out around an army camp.
As it was, he got it wrong, very wrong running over the crest at Engineers bend, the fastest corner on the circuit, ending up with his Cooper perched atop the roof of the guardroom, having hit a bus stop and a small tree between leaving the track and reaching his unintended destination.”
