Performance-tuned vehicles, tight bends, breathtaking speed... racing is an inherently dangerous sport. Despite advances in driver protection and track improvements, driver and spectator deaths still occur.

Among the circuits featured are Monaco, Guia Circuit, Spa-Francorchamps, Daytona and the Nurburgring.

Xcar explains: "Obviously that fateful weekend, when we lost both Senna and Ratzenberger and Barrichello suffered his horrible crash, has Imola firmly planted in our memories as being dangerous.  However, based on lives claimed over its lifetime, it didn't make the top 10."
