Moss and Hammond’s narrow escapes
Mazizi Ndzimela | Fri, 13 Jul 2012
Most racing drivers feed-off the adrenaline pumping through their veins when the car is roaring down the race track, and adoring fans are spectating on the sidelines.

The accident occurred during an attempt to break the British land speed record.
A tyre blow out was reported as the cause of the accident.

His accident in 1962 left him in a coma for 38 days and partially paralyzed for six months.
Moss retired from the sport the following year, he did not feel in control of the car he was most accustomed to, the Lotus 19. His fans were elated when he returned to racing at the British Touring Car Championship in 1980.
