One question:

Why?

You keep making these posts; they're always to do with fatalities; you
seem not to make any positive contribution to this forum....

I assume you mean you would like to know the details surrounding the 1955 disaster?

Well covered in previous threads, perhaps the best one is this:

What is this guy talking about? His sentences make no sense and everything is completely random. Am I missing something here?

"Where is he from?" is a more relevant question...

Seeing as English is obviously not his native tongue, I think we should cut him a little slack and try to understand him. Clearly he has a desire to find something he feels we can help provide him.

Isn't that why we're all here? To both learn and contribute?

I think he's spanish or his native language is spanish.

I'll send a PM to calo about us TNFers and a few words on the forms used here.

I think it was fair enough for petefenelon to want to check him out, though.

Those short, sharp sentences don't give too many clues - and he could have been a sensationalist journalist trying to get information for an anti-motor sport story.

If Calo is putting together a list of drivers killed or injured at Le Mans, I would be interested to see it. Most on TNF by now must know of my interest in a "start" and a "finish" point for driver's careers.

We get plenty of information here on GP drivers and incidents that occurred in GP racing. Some info on top level sports car racing wouldn't go astray. And in the earlier eras, GP racing and sports car racing were even more closely linked than they are today.

Come to think of it, though, the complete story on quite a few modern day F1 drivers can not be completely known without tracing their careers in sports car racing post-F1.

Speaking of short, sharp sentences, whatever happened to Boniver? He sounded a bit "sus" when he first posted here, turned out to be a significant figure in the motoring/motor sport world. He had a way of stringing words together that brought a smile to my dial. I miss his posts.

1999:
Eric van de Poele (Nissan R391) crashed hard in Wednesday's practise at Tertre Rouge because of a gaspedal failure. He suffered severe back injuries

Thiery Boutsen (Toyota GTone) crashed at around 2am sunday morning after he collided with a 911 GT2 at the pitexit. Boutsen was hit from behind and had a big shunt. He also suffered back injuries

JJ Letho (BMW V12 LMR) crashed sunday morning at the Porsche curves, but suffered only a very little leg injury

that's all I know about F1-drivers hurt, sadly the others I know had fatal crashes there

1964

Giancarlo Baghetti crashed his works 275P avoiding the tumbling corpse of the Sears/Boulton AC Cars-entered Cobra coupe.
It was dark and the Ferrari finished in the brambles near Maisson Blanche.
When the car was retrieved it was discovered that three boys had sneaked into this non-spectator area for a better vantage point and were killed when the 275P left the road.
