    Default Grand Prix, The Dangerous Years

    Did anyone see this last night on I think BBC 4? What a great documentary with some horrific footage of accidents and burning drivers. Outlining just how mad things used to be. Was very similar to the Graeme Hill documentary not too long ago.

    yep i watched it i also remember the drivers taking the safety issue head on and the ballyhoo about not driving on the nurburg ring, i think there was a death or serious accident in nearly every race that year

    seeing a driver still sat in a burning car with people just looking and not knowing what to do was bad, good news that things have moved on as far as health and safety goes, even though we still mock the health and safety officials at our work places they only have our best intrests at heart
