Imagine going into an antique shop and smashing a priceless vase. Now imagine that priceless vase is Jim Clark’s 1967 Lotus 49 and your error has been broadcast across the world. That’s what happened at this year’s Monaco Historic Grand Prix, a race which should see people cruising around trying not to damage beautiful old cars but instead sees gentleman racers going full yolo.
It wasn’t just the Lotus 49 that met the wall though, a Token RJ02 (yes, there really as an F1 team called Token) crashed as well as a big smash between a Ferrari 312B and a March 721G. Watch the videos if you can handle it.
Was that Maldonado driving the Ferrari?
