My Google Fu says that is Geoffrey Ansell in lap 23 of the 1948 Grand Prix. Apparently he was more or less unharmed and survived.

I've always loved the production car based series like Super Touring, BTCC, DTM, Rolex Sports Car, etc.

Made me think of the clk-gtr. Not really my opinion of pretty, but it's really more of a race car. Bada** is more like it. They were crazy to put any of these on the road.

Not really any more crazy than some of the other super/hypercars that have been made. Ferrari Enzo, McLaren F1, some of the more obscure ones like Koenigsegg, etc.
