Comment of the day

Is anyone going to the Canadian Grand Prix and interested in adamf184?s offer?

On this day in F1

Jack Brabham won the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort on this day in 1960.

But the race was marred by an accident involving Dan Gurney. His brakes failed approaching the Tarzan corner and he crashed over a bank on the outside of the corner. One spectator was knocked down and killed.
