1 pic of Tony Bell crash

Last weekend I took this picture of the Tony Bell crash. I had to run away otherwise it would have hit me !!
I can't remember any other crashes of him, was it one of his hardest crashes??

As strange it may seem.... No.
Didn't he have a rather large one at Lydden a few years ago?
And by memory made some good air.

Shawn you are right. I was working for Tony back then. It took 45mins to get him out. Luckily he only had bruising, and the car wasn't too bad. Since then he rolled it in Sweden as well.

Yeah the Lydden one would appear to have been bigger from memory... Can't find a photo anywhere though.

The marks were still on the tarmac for years afterwards.

I don't know.
Spend hours looking for a picture and comes up trumps twice within minutes.

Now found this link on the subject , not too far from home


ooh, Just read the words now and he don't seem to be too popular at Lydden.

Well done Shaun. And back in 99 I had barely started marshalling! No camera back then...

Stay on topic please. The question was not about the skills of Tony.

I was talking about the merits of seeing him on his roof, which of you look at your original post is kind of relevant!

Rookie!

I can't remember that I asked anyone about Tony's merits.

I would comment on some of the above posts but I would only end up getting into trouble off the Mods, needless to say somebody above would be a superstar in the said car.
Hope Tony and the car are not to badly damaged and see you soon.

Anyone who rattles into marshalls is seriously in need of a personality, I couldnt do it, I have tried and found it utterly boring and tedious.

That doesnt mean I dont respect the guys that do have a crack with the flags, hence the dislike shown to this man after his childish display.

Plus, yes I guess Gibsons comments are directed at me, they usually are, but if I had Bell's money then I like to think that (by now) I might have got the hang of it a bit instead of beating a load of clubman in rally ars to wins all the time, bless!
