There are a few gems out there if you do a search and scroll through the endless crash videos.
However one crash that caught my eye was the famous 1978 F3 startline pile-up at the GP meeting, when Nakajima flew. Never seen this on film before.

I just spent some enjoyable minutes leafing through the Marshall website. Others here will be a better judge than I, but it seems as if they've captured the spirit of the fellow quite well.

Yes, this looks most promising, doesn't it? :up:

No mention yet of John Wingfield or Marshall Wingfield... (plenty of time, I'm sure).
