Martin Donnellyretiredseverely injured
category:accident
descriptionIn practice for the race, Donnelly's Lotus speared straight off at the fast bend before the final hairpin, striking the wall with great force. The front half of the car had totally disintegrated, and Donnelly was pitched out onto the road still attached to his seat. Amazingly, Donnelly escaped with his life. He sustained multiple injuries, but after a long recovery, he was able to walk again.
