    The luge one triggers me every time. It happened in 2010 when there has already been so much advancement in sports. How the fuck can you have an exposed steel pole on the side of the track, let alone immediately after a corner where people are flying round at 80+ mph?!

    Surprised no mountaineers (mountain climbers) have made this list considering the numbers of those killed - could probably do a 10 just from Everest alone - add in those killed on the Eiger and other Alpine peaks. Also Jules Bianchi, Elio de Angelis, Stefan Bellof, Alberto Ascari, Jimmy Clark, Ronnie Peterson (as noted by Herrkul downthread), Jochen Rindt and more - you could do a 10 just in F1.

    Phil Hugh's was killed at a result of Australia's terrible cricket culture. Than like a year later our cricket team, was caught cheating. Also, on aside note, Australian cricket captain, is considered more important than our prime Minister, in important jobs over here. Our woman's team is more dominant, and way fucken way less funded. Just like a lot of woman over here, kicking arse, but not realised.

    I recall the truly awful scenes of poor David Purley trying to save his burning friend who'd crashed moments earlier at the 1973 Vervoort racing circuit. His frantic demands for aid while he made superhuman attempts to fight through the inferno that engulfed his dead friend. A sadder & forlorn figure you've never seen in your life again. You can't watch the footage & not bubble your eyes out, its a monumental disaster of a human tragedy.

    As far as Dale E. Death, he started it by not wearing a HANS device, broke neck, he didn’t like tight seat harnesses, his was loose, busted head and face. And most of all, he invented his bump and run style, and they, all the nascar drivers, got tired of it being his late, I can’t pass cleanly, unsportsmanlike conduct. So when he was blocking others in the field, he paid the price. His fault, their fault, no ones fault, then the price was paid. Sad but life decisions will catch up sooner or later.

    Senna, Earnhardt, Owen Hart, Bianchi, and Gathers were most notable for me, but 1955 Le Mans disaster led to Mercedes not being a factory team for more than half of a century, only to re-emerge as Mercedes AMG Petronas. Senna's death, ironically, paved the way for the series of safety evolutions that we are witnessing, as dull as it may, at least we only have Bianchi's death in the years since Senna. IndyCar, on the other hand, STILL being willfully ignorant towards the safety at the ovals, and that's why oval circuits are better suited for NASCAR or SportsCar

    This is what I hate about the way safety in sports is implemented, we put up barriers and use the right kit AFTER someone's died.....that shouldnt be allowed to happen, things like shock absorbing barriers in nascar and f1 shouldve been standard from the start, not after people died
