One never knows just how “forgetting to put on a safety belt” could be seen as the smartest thing someone would do when racing. On September 17, 2000 it would give racer Nigel Corner another day on this earth. After seeing this Jeff Bloxam photo of these vintage Ferraris wreck in the Goodwood Revival 2000 it is hard to forget – see narrated video below. It is amazing he survived … although he did break 20 bones, including his back, and punctured both lungs(MotorSport link).
