Derek Daly Career

From 1980 to 1982, he focused on Formula One, with his best year being 1980, when he finished in eleventh position in the Drivers’ Championship after two fourth-place finishes. His two most memorable incidents in F1 happened during the Grand Prix of Monaco. In 1980 he crashed spectacularly after vaulting three cars at the first corner. In 1982, he was unexpectedly in contention for the victory when the four cars ahead of him experienced problems with less than two laps remaining, but his gearbox failed, and he was forced to the sidelines.

Daly began racing in the CART series in 1982 and competed until 1989. He participated in 66 CART races, including every Indianapolis 500 from 1983 to 1989, except 1986. He placed in the top ten 21 times, including a third-place finish at Milwaukee in 1987. In September 1984, he was nearly slain in a horrific accident at Michigan International Speedway during the CART PPG Detroit News Grand Prix 200. He sustained multiple injuries, including a crushed left ankle, double compound fractures to the left tibia and fibula, fractured left hip socket, severely cracked pelvis, several broken side ribs, broken left hand, third-degree burns to the left arm, dislocated right foot and ankle, deep abrasions and soft tissue to the right heel, and internal bleeding. In 1990 and 1991, Daly won the 12 Hours of Sebring while driving a Nissan GTP ZX-Turbo. In 1990, he drove both the first- and second-placed cars.
