1978 Safari Rally
Rallying has claimed about two dozen drivers and co-drivers in the last four decades but spectators are equally at risk, if not more so. Unlike racing on closed courses, rally fans enjoy standing a few metres from the road with nothing between them and the speeding cars, often close enough to touch them.
At the 1978 Safari Rally, nine non-competitors were killed on transit stages. But the tradition of watching the race at close quarters remains and dozens of spectators have been killed or injured in the ensuring years.
