Someone on an earlier post mentioned the 1950s crash where 80 people were killed. That was Le Mans where the Mercedes driver collided with an Austin-Healy and flew into the crowd. Le Mans is so big that most of the crowd knew nothing about the extent of the crash at the time and the race officials continued the race until its end after the crash.

It was only about 10 years ago when 3 people were killed during a CART race at MIS.
