Some people on the Tex amaze me. How can your be so immature to make a 6 paragraph reply when everything you say is meaningless. Sorry no pics from me just thought I'd give my $.02 to the idiots.
I love this pic...
Grand Prix returned to this high speed track in 1955, 1956, 1960, and 1961. This last race in 1961 had another fatal accident, with Wolfgang von Trips and fourteen spectators dying near the Parabolica.
Despite the fact that the bankings were not involved in that accident, the F1 never raced on the oval again (except in the film Grand Prix made in 1966). New safety walls, rails and fences were quickly added, and the refuelling area was moved further from the track. Run-off areas were added to the curves in 1965 after a fatality in the 1000km Monza race, the track layout was not changed until Grand Prix returned in 1966, with new chicanes at the banked curves, and the track length extended by 100 metres (328 ft). The 1000 km Monza staged the last event on the banking in 1969.
