Driver FatalitiesEdit

Peter Revson (1974)Edit

Peter Revson was killed during a test session for the 1974 South African Grand Prix. Revson's car suffered a front suspension failure causing the car to crash into the Armco barrier of "Barbecue Bend".

Revson was then replaced by Tom Pryce.

Tom Pryce (1977)Edit

Tom Pryce was killed on lap 21 of the 1977 South African Grand Prix. After the car of Renzo Zorzi caught fire in the final turn, two fire marshals were crossing the track. Pryce was driving directly behind Hans Joachim Stuck and did not see the marshals on the track. Pryce struck the second marshal, killing himself and the marshal. The 40lb fire extinguisher that the marshal was carrying struck Pryce's head, partially decapitating him.

Pryce's car traveled down the straight away. It came to a rest in Crowthorne corner, after colliding with Jacques Laffite at extremely high speeds.
