Vintage Racing Crashes

Vintage Racing Crashes

Racing safety has come along way since the early days if racing. Things such as roll cages and safety harnesses have made serious injury much less likely when crashes happen.

Unfortunately, serious injuries and even death still happen, but drivers are much better off then they used to be. Just how much better off are they?

Well, check out this video and see how racing was in the early days. This vintage footage shows early race cars being wrecked often causing their drivers to be thrown from the vehicles.

We should all be glad that motorsport is safer than it used to be, although nothing will ever be 100% safe.
