    I remember when a touring car hit a rabbit wiping out the font end. Was ages ago and it was 1 of those programmes with crashes n stuff. Couldnt believe a wee rabbit could do that much damage.

    Spot on Coo, it was Peter Dumbreck, car took off at 180mph on the Mulsan straight (??) at Le-Man and Mercedes withdrew from the race i bleive and Audi R8 won it that year

    Mike it was pretty damn funny me and dad were sitting laughing.. it is a shame as Kangaroo's are killed daily on public roads but we just couldn't believe that it had happened

    Love the scalextric one!

    I always remember the one at Le Mans where he comes down the straight, all of a sudden, the front lifts up and it just catapults into the air flipping then lands in the bushes. Is that the Merc your talking about?

    Martin Shanker was always entertaining, he used to do rally cross, he got shunted off one day so ran out in front of everyone trying to stop the race - think he got banned after that.

    I remember a BTCC end of season shoot out race at donnington when a Primera came off on the Craners, slidd into the gravel trap and then took off and barrel rolled over the catch fencing.

    I just looked beyond the laws of physics.

    I was also there when Mansell stacked a Mondeo into the bridge at the old hairpin - that was wierd cos everyone knew it was gonna happen the way he'd been driving on previous laps - excpet out Nige.
