hitting it … out of the park

Rolf Stommelen’s Embassy Racing Hill-Ford GH1, 1975 Spanish Grand Prix, Montjuich Park

Stommelen would play a big role in the decision to never return to the ‘park’ in Barcelona afther the fatal 1975 Grand Prix, when he hit the barrier after the rear wing of his Hill GH1 broke off
the crash & the debris that flew off his car into the public resulted in the death of 4 spectators
the race would move to Madrid for the following years, racing at the permanent track of Jarama
