Hmmm a few shortened racing careers there me thinks!!

Back when the balls were big & safety was a small (nonexistent ) thought!

Good pics but!

Hi

 

It's hard to believe that harnesses weren't compulsory in Formula 1 until 1972. Apparently it was considered to be safer to be thrown out of the car than to stay within it.

 

Cheers

Sometimes I wonder Bazza...a lot of those drivers seemed to get up and walk/crawl away....maybe the speeds weren't that high

He was probably saying to himself I can still win I just need to keep it flat to the floor and hang onto the the wheel.

No Y generation sooks in those days.
