    The use of photographic evidence was well put together. How ironic the jaguar driver was killed over taking a Merc in Guildford.

    More like a 'red mist' Mercedes moment for Hawthorn......and unfortunately his last.

    A terrible tragedy. The overlaying of grandstand area post-accident footage over pre-accident footage was truly chilling. Spectators wiped out in an instant.

    That was the worst. Apparently the number of spectators that were killed isn't known, but it's between 80 to 120.
    Shocking.

    I saw this, wasn't expecting it to be any good at all but what a fantastic documentary it turned out to be! Such haunting footage and pictures.

    Can see how far safety has come on since then, pits along the main straight .....

    Yep. Stirling Moss once said that when he started racing, the only safety feature was a CLOTH helmet.
