Vintage race car crashes

It looks like most all these tough old- school racers walked (or limped) away.

This video released on the same day Dan Wheldon is killed in Indie (RIP).

Kind of proves it's still a dangerous sport.

I apreciate the apparently senseless way to live of our grandpas.
In Italy we had Tazio Nuvolari, that was a great champion and it's still much loved

You must have a huge respect for these guys. My idol when I was little was Ayrton Senna. Cried a river when he died :'(

Well, the guy at 1:44 is toast. Literally.

I guess the sport is alot safer these days: 15 cars crashing in an indie car race and only one perishes. Ofcourse, that's still one too many, but if it were 15 rickety racemobiles then it would be a whole lot more deaths and injuries!

God must love racingsports: he invites everyone over for an autograph!

although they go by 451 km/h nowdays, it looks so much saver than this time here..
why wasnt no one locked by a seatbelt or at least protected vs flip overs. :(

#18 Indycars use carbon fiber disc brakes at 'super speedways' and steel disc brakes at all other races. These cars are heavier yet faster than F1 cars on the tracks they race on. Good brakes are a must for safety. At this race they were averaging over 220 mph per lap,probably hitting 245 mph or better in the straights
