one car crashed at brands hatch and. we hated it and it and i must admit i didn't sleep well at night and i was always desperately nervous the night before a race i mean drivers really were worried i mean you see some drivers faces they were white before the race with anxiety. the previous year bell had shared his ferrari $512.00 cockpit at lamar with swedish driver ronnie pettersen. but he was with me in formula 2 you see as well so i knew him really well that to some native joined the lotus team in formula one at the 978 italian grand prix in monza he cannot it was james hunt and crashed into the barriers his legs shattered he died the next morning. the highlights of this good would weekend is the tourist trophy or t.t. race which will feature an impressive the ray of a c. come. and jack what he types. the classic cars

7:39 am
a problem if you have a good car it's the work i will blame to go to sydney but there was one thing the drivers were really afraid of. your suzuki don't want a flat tire because then things get tricky if you suddenly get rear tire damage in the car lowers a bit there as you get air coming up under the car and it that speed jumbo jets can take off everything there's all this. money spent on to triumph at lamont in 1909 together with money we're fighting in stanley dickens. but that's here too so it's share of incidents the man is one of the deadliest racists in the motor sports world costing the lives of 21 drivers today. must have also been critical of conditions at the mall and even said as much they hear he won't. because he said this race in its current form shouldn't really be

7:41 am
race marshals seriously injured another marshal was killed in a separate accident but the race continued. and was won by derek bell together with jackie in the deadly crash did not appear to dampen the celebration. i think there were 2 is to look at it one was i didn't know the drivers well if that means anything they were close friends they became it later well those that die didn't you know that's the way it was either but the racing was like that. that good would the oldest living formula one champion jackie stewart dunces racing the . steel had won the driver's title 3 times between 969 and 73 but you could say the flying scotsman greatest achievement of both was having survived. the bench. you know like my time before the regime was

dangerous and shake shake destroying sixty's in the seventy's. that's a day in which death and glory became increasingly frequent. among them was still with close friends just some didn't killed in the 1970 before being passed to the sea crowned champion power as. my wife once. she conquered 57 people. i was friendly with him or she with call of duty with trouble. she did. well north of course they never stopped to rage when peace courage to die would never stop the least of the fuel was a lie if you were driving through the fuel rods your machine the same thing you
7:43 am
never stop to reach the organizers never stop. but you williamson lost his life at the 973 death scrum pre sen dr david kearney tried desperately to turn the car back over but williamson died in the flames. the race was won by jackie stewart probably the saddest victory of his career. we got used to going to germany i've probably been to more serious for a test flight no. it was just a really fun time. just in mass wombs up for the t.t. race at goodwood which includes practicing the drive a switch with nico a distinct. feel.
7:44 am
why all the likes of bell's duis and him still with us well so many here this amounts to. they certainly all had close encounters with death in derek bell's case it was the 1000 kilometers of spot in 970. back then consummate refueled by hand by a open topped tunnels. filled gasoline likely from jackie it's calm snowed in on the pitch names and seconds later bells ferrari was on the front. yellow for ari 512 1st time i've ever seen that cough estimate i've seen. and 3 times of course when they refueled and i remember i saw george in the car and
7:45 am
turned the key and it is also light so i got out then i got back in again having put the far out there 3 times and the final time i didn't get back in i literally put my foot inside the door and turned the key like that but by then i'd singed my eyebrows they were. $982.00 at the french grown 3 in the cast and they. crash involving most of the and just the most left the form is sidelined while the last is com flew into the crowd . i. just want to hide i could feel the heat hind me everything was on fire and i knew it could get nasty if they could get me out of the car soon then i probably would have died of suffocation due to a lack of oxygen that's normally what happens before you burn to death for by and. that's when i just thank god i fell the right way up if i'd been upside down i would have died. and fortunately they was still with fire extinguishers right
7:46 am
close by it was our need it was so wonderfully cool in that moment such a massive relief it was a lifestyle report for 2 thankfully it's what also gave us enough time to cut me free from the mess of wire fencing. that i was called. because it does to the fact that i survived that without any major injuries was a miracle. sometimes fortune smiled on derek bell and he often must but knock was not the only factor in this survival. namely he were mistakes then some of the drawings. they didn't push their luck as often as others did. get it. fixed in 1975 german t.v.
7:47 am
broadcast a portrait of then up and coming formula one driver johan must hands as he entered this modern gladiatorial arena unlike some other comics he did not dismiss the dangers involved in the arts there are still times when i feel fear is the it's more a realisation of the danger that you might be exposing yourself to them as to us it's sometimes i wake up or rather i emerge from my daydreams and think am i really doing the right thing because it was too obvious for that you put those thoughts out your mind in forget them which is only natural it was. just a monster love the life of a racing driver too much to take unnecessary risks to see. the stuff that had been up because there are some races i refused but i'd say drive the car yourself john surtees in the monaco grand prix which of course every driver was proud to race. as it was my 1st time there in every try. session something fell off
7:48 am
my car coming down the straight part of the back axle broke in the car stopped right in the pit lane john said what did you hit and i said i didn't hit anything john if you drive it hard i'm not going to i'm not some guinea pig or a bit of covers he was going to. this safety concerns prompted mass to quit the city's team soon afterwards in his 2nd race after replacing mass him with clinic came off the track in watkins glen in the us for reasons unknown the cops into a guardrail killing the driver. to face a crash of illustrated the additional danger of dr is pushing themselves and their cones to the limits. while it was extremely difficult dealing with that over the years says it was we've been good friends with the group before and it ran during qualifying for the 982 belgian grand prix she even rolled out all
7:49 am
the stops to secure pole position as head of his teammate and rival dva. you saw that i saw the ferrari come up in my rearview mirror the 2nd half he was annoyed because peroni was quicker than him. and we had these tires that were ideal for a fast lap and i just a little. bored she'll want to do another fast lap although we'd already done wonderful and that meant taking risks using isn't easy going you're going. for your mile and then afterwards everyone told me it wasn't your fault and for you know it was only a matter of time before it happened british great because he was overdoing it so he got to be. the crash that claimed the life of rolf storm and then in riverside california was likewise no coincidence. it was caused by driver error to the german
7:50 am
took over duties in the porsche $935.00 from derek bell. it forgot he had brand new tires which were hot so he went out the track was always a little slick brake because it was there was saddened and i think he slid off and i know he stood up and he bounced over the bumps because i knew that high over the bumps and probably fractured something in the air and that makes. me feel uneasy. and bellowing to survive is they've changed a bit since they were formula 2 rivals the 973. they shared history on the track also includes another man who had a different approach to motor racing. in 198384 derrick bell was the co-driver of stephanie beloff in the world sports car championship. i mean he was
7:51 am
a super kid i mean he would call it you know i'd call him father and i'd call him son and he called me father and i go i really really like him he was such a nice easy going guy from believed he was really quick and a really popular driver it was a nice guy always laughing. but he didn't have enough respect dogs by one time we were on the new ring in the river the last 1000 kilometer race at the plants got my car left the ground briefly but it worked out ok but when i came into pit i had the chance to talk to him i say watch out you might take off back there he looked at me as if he felt sorry for me and said ok i get it 1st and then on his 1st lap he was off. and nobody was coaching him he needed a coach you need somebody to say you're going too fast too quickly you need to start to learn the corners get a adapt yourself and then everything will be fine. in 1985 for sharing that car. with tea at the fleet center at star he was in hot pursuit of jackie its
7:52 am
partner. this is the onboard camera from x. his car through the muscles have been the solution nose to tail 1st to 2nd place in the entry to the new tour his own. it's suddenly spins off then off we nudge him while trying to overtake is seen slamming into the barrier. to. get using the idea he took risks that were reckless towards others and himself. i still sometimes hear young people mentioning this conspiracy theory that jackie exploded onto her business and whatever tell them that's nonsense why on earth would jackie do that sort of or get us to no. muss is also at the scene she doesn't look good. moment but he's still alive. yes there's 2 basically the. bones and the front of the car was bent down you could
7:53 am
just tell that it was over those things for a bible. and i always just i felt so bad that i didn't try and can she asked him to go a little slower or control should have she sat him down and said look you're doing some wonderful lap time so you're really really quick. but you know you you've got to you've got to start thinking for a bit further up the road. it's the sort of accident that happens when you don't drive with enough respect. you have to approach things differently and take care of . racing is dangerous. and then if you overdo it and tell yourself it will be ok that's not good. they scored. the highlights of the goodwood revival weekend the t.t. race is approaching. derek bell will be at the wheel of a potion 9
7:54 am
a full together with co-driver the dave clark. belle will go 1st albeit from the back of the grid qualifying didn't go too well. he struggles to catch up and loses further ground with every lap he's in last position as he hands over to his partner either pushes too slow or derrick bell is starting to show his age when you're in their experience you want to buy your back here and. we are sure. now it's action stations for you often must switching drivers doesn't go as smoothly as a few decades ago. but once he's in position there's
7:55 am
no stopping him. mom says better in his car then derek bell and reels in one competitor after the next as he rolls back there he is. he loves lap times around a 2nd faster than his younger team partner. the often made up 2 or 3 places he's just overtaken a cobra he's really stepping on it it's good. he crosses the line in 13 after starting in 20 seconds at. good day's walk. down a little before i still drive because it still comes pretty easy to me little boys
