....now bear with me on this one, Im not just posting some sick and gorey video for the sake of it.

I will however warm you the video is not for the feint hearted!!

Ive seen the video many times before and in the past thought it was just the marshal that was killed.

After watching the whole thing all the way through, it appears the marshal that was hit was carrying a fire extinguisher, which unfortunatly hit the driver in the head - also killing him.

What makes it more shocking is the promise of the driver...

Extract from Wikipedia:

Thomas Maldwyn Pryce (June 11, 1949 March 5, 1977) was a British racing driver from Ruthin, Wales. He was famous for winning the Brands Hatch Race of Champions (a non-championship Formula One race) in 1975 and for the circumstances surrounding his death. Pryce is the only Welsh driver to have won a Formula One race and is also the only Welshman to lead a Formula One World Championship Grand Prix: two laps of the 1975 British Grand Prix.

Pryce started his career in Formula One with the small Token team, making his only start for them at the 1974 Belgian Grand Prix. Shortly after an impressive performance at the Formula Three support race for the 1974 Monaco Grand Prix, Pryce joined the Shadow team and scored his first points in Germany in only his fourth race. Pryce later claimed two podium finishes, his first in Austria in 1975 and the second in Brazil a year later. Pryce was considered by his team as a great wet weather driver. During the practice session for the 1977 South African GP, run in wet conditions, Pryce was faster than everyone, including world champion drivers Niki Lauda and James Hunt. Pryce's third full season at Shadow was cut short by his fatal accident at the 1977 South African Grand Prix, where he collided at high speed with track marshal Frederik Jansen Van Vuuren.

In 2007, it was announced that a statue of Pryce would be erected in his home town of Ruthin by the local council to mark the 30th anniversary of his death. On the 23rd January 2008, the Trust Fund members met in the Rhuthun Castle Hotel, under the chairmanship of David Richards (Prodrive), to discuss the progress of the intended memorial to be placed in Upper Clwyd Street in Rhuthun. After a positive meeting, moves are afoot to have this monument in place before the end of this year.

Completely agree with Toto.

He was a fantastic driver, something Wales was very proud of.

His death isnt really a joke, or anything to joke about

Well, it was a long long time ago, but its Tragic, as obviously not only the Marshall was killed, bu the way that Pryce was killed, and yet no-one even knew.

His car carried on down the track, and just went into the barrier, and no-one knew until they got to him. He was basically decapitated from the Extinguisher. Very Unlucky and very Saddening
