Motorsport is getting safer and safer but it has and always will have an element of danger to it. Some say that's why both the spectators and the participants love it. Some race tracks have proven to be more dangerous than others though. We've listed the 10 that have claimed the most lives to date.

Imola didn't make this list, incidentally. Although it will always be remembered as the scene of that horrible weekend the sport lost both Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna it has not claimed nearly as many lives as the rest of this list.

As safety becomes a bigger and bigger priority, we look forward to a time when loss of life has been eliminated from motorsport. Until then here are the most deadly race tracks in the world.
