    Mark Webber first learnt how to flip a car at Le Mans 1999 he actually did it twice once in qualifying and again in the race but it was not his fault it was a design flaw with the Mercedes CLR GT1

    Peter Dumbreck's flip was terrifying.

    True. There's the chance that Senna would have closed the door on Bellof taking them both off, giving the win to ... De Angelis?

    I he in a gumshield there? Makes sense if you grit your teeth when you're hard on the brakes I suppose.

    Edit: looks more like a camera issue to me now.

    Just been digging through some old B&W negatives and came across this image of Paul Warwick racing in the British F3000 Championship at Brands in 1991. Sadly Paul died that year aged 22, Derek always maintained he was a much faster driver than him and if what I witnessed that day was anything to go by Britain lost a future F1 Champion.

    Paul Newman, age 70 (which is why they chose that car number), winning his class at the 1995 24 hours of Daytona race. It's things like that that give us geezers hope!

    The turbine car that came within 3 laps of winning the 1967 Indy 500. A $6 bearing failure put it out!

    The bodywork is tightly packed around the chassis though. Always a good look

    Jim Hall, one of the most innovative engineers in auto racing history (along with Colin Chapman) in his 1966 Chaparral 2E, which had a (featherable) high-mounted wing acting directly on the rear uprights, radiators at the hips rather than in the nose (as was the norm then), an automatic transmission, and the lace-spoke wheels which he designed and which BBS has made millions on ever since (since he didn't patent the design).
