    TRAGEDIA ALLA COPPA CAROTTI MUORE PILOTA | Rieti Life


    Re: BMW 318is Judd V8 / Schorsch Plasa

    All the links are dead.

    Here's a rough translation of the link Duckie provided.

    Georg Plasa, fifty-one German pilot, died shortly after 14.00 today during the forty-eighth Coppa Carotti. Plasa's car, a BMW 134 V8JUDD, crashed into the mountain shortly after the fourth bend. Immediate relief efforts to try to revive the driver, even the ambulance on site who assumed responsibility for emergency transport to the Gemelli hospital in Rome to come but just Plasa there was nothing more to do. To ascertain the causes of the tragic accident, one of the first hypothesis is that of damage to a car Plasa, experienced driver of hill climbs. The pilots, learned the news from the discomfort, they decided by mutual agreement with the organizers to suspend the race. Photo: Gianluca Vannicelli

    A terrible loss and again a sad reminder of the danger of the sport we all admire. Bye Georg!


    Re: BMW 318is Judd V8 / Schorsch Plasa

    That´s very sad. We followed the build of his racecar a few months ago.

    I guess hillclimbs must be the most dangerous motorsport around, as the level of speed and safety zones are considerably more dangerous than anything else, including WRC racing. Unlike the latter, which continues over several days and stages, you have not much time to gain time that you lost at another place that easily. On top of that, the budget of most competitors is rather limited so there´d be a higher chance of a mechanical failure.
