Pic of the Day 4th August Crashed Demi-Fond Bursts Into Flames

Still on the subject of motor-paced racing...

Le Grand Prix de L'U.V.F au VĂ©lodrome Buffalo, 1923. A blow-out, a crash, a ruptured fuel tank, and Demenou's demi-fond bursts into flames. The man in the hat pulls the burning moto away from the wooden track, wooden canopy, and wooden grandstands, while the driver (right) appears to be using an old-fashioned fire extinguisher, what little good that might do him!
>From "Le Miroir des Sports" No.170, 4 October 1923.
