Plenty to list from a marshalling point of view...
Most cars involved: Donington FRenault Winter Series 2000(?)
Worst to attend: Alfa Romeo fatality at Mallory 2002.
Worst fire: Marcos Mantis at Redgate, Donington, British GT 2001
Scariest: John B&Q hitting the tyre wall I had just been stood on (before diving for cover) at Hilltop, Oulton, BTCC 2002.
Too many others to think of.

I found a link on the internet which shows the crashes of certain famous drivers!

It shows Ayrton Senna, i remember this, being only small i was very shocked when i saw it, but i remember running to the "old man" and saying hes dead!

the website is:

[Sorry Scott, I'm not going to let that one stay, because it features videos of drivers being killed, which is in pretty poor taste.]

And my husband was there (in some shape or form) for the first three, thus confirming his nickname of Magnet.

Personally I try to keep out of the way of accidents but the one I remember for the amusement factor was the 17 hatches (can't remember which variety now) in the pit wall at Mallory a few years ago. One driver was very patient and sat in his car until all the debris had been cleared up (mind you he didn't have much choice - his door was wedged against the wall and there were a few other cars round him effectively blocking his exit route).

Fair play in banning the link.

Was it the Ford Credit Fiesta challenge approx 1985/86.
I think one of them made it over the pit wall and into the
pit lane ,a damn good reason for not being allowed on pit wall during the start me thinks .

If my memory works I think it was 1987,i was waiting in the collecting area,brscc mod saloons, the clerk of the course, which i think was don trueman,called all the drivers in after the second re start, went ape s..t told them would he stop their round at the brscc super prix at birmingham.Both Fiestas and mod saloons raced at Birmingham, i do remember that day.I cannot see that the incident was road saloons.

Slowcoach should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I shall just recount a slightly humourous one from my little archive- I was testing my Sunbeam Lotus at Mallory about 5 years ago on a general test day and was being held up by a rather pristine Ferrari, lap after bloody lap I could get alongside him round the outside at Gerrards only to be out dragged down the straight and blocked all the way through the esses,up to the hairpin etc...,I was getting very very frustrated (but of course wouldnt want to damage his lovely car) anyway eventually he left me a tiny gap up the inside and I took my chance, approaching the hairpin, I got alongside him and glared at him as I went past - I clearly remember the look of shock on his face and I thought to myself 'Yes!' then 'No' as I looked up and went headfirst into the barrier. After the red flag and being towed back to the paddock I got out my crow bar and club hammer and beat the front of the car back into something resembling its previous form whilst swearing and cursing loudly about the other driver to my friend. 15 mins later when I had finished my tirade my friend motioned to me to look round and there was the guy with all his Ferrari pals parked right behind me looking fairly sheepish. I purposely followed him out for the next session and he kindly moved aside on the first lap..........
