    Default Crazy Motorsport accidents that drivers survived

    Kenny Brack in 2003, went airborne into the fence, impact was registered at 193G's. In the video, Brack laughs about the doctor who had collected bone fragments and them into bags labeled right and left and put the bags on the medical helicopter with Brack.

    Conor Cummins going off at the Verandah at the 2010 Isle of Man Senior TT is probably one of the more spectacular crashes that a person survived.

    Jimmie Johnson at Watkins Glen in 2000. It's unbelievable how fast the car stops and he just climbs out like it's no problem.

    Davey Allison at Pocono in 1992. Even in slow motion, it's unreal how fast that car spins.

    Yeah that Bodine one was a doozy. The thing with all these that have been posted is that just when you realize how bad they are, they suddenly get a lot worse.

    Here's one from Brands Hatch in 1978. Pay attention to the lead bike.

    ESPN did a good write-up, including what's left of the cabin footage, of Wolff's lap record attempt and crash at Nurburgring.

    I had never heard of this but looked into it. What a terrible incident!! So sad even though everyone lived.
    Amazing that such a seemingly benign moment led to such tragedy.

    Watching that makes my stomach turn. I've seen it before and it's one of those videos that lives with you. I've made sure to have good fire systems in my race cars and practice emergency exits often. All that practice paid off for me a couple years ago when I had to jump out of a burning race car here at castrol.

    David Reutimann at California. Starting at ~1:40 there's a roof cam view of the crash, and then the camera switches to the in-car view where he's sitting there switched off with his spotter on the radio telling him "come on David, you gotta get out, it's on fire, it's on fire David, you gotta get out." Even knowing that he walked away, it's hard to watch with the concern in his spotter's voice and he's just sitting there motionless.

    If it wasnt for the HANS device, he likely would have been.
