"The Most Dangerous Venues"

So, I've got bored. I've decided that I want a conversation with racing fans about something that we will inevitably argue on, but something that could have a lot of thought behind. If you're a huge fan of any form of racing, from dirt hillclimbs to huge superspeedways, then you'll definitely have seen some big crashes. It's a part of racing that neither specatators nor competitors like (unless you're slightly odd). But it seems that some circuits have more danger than others.
I'd like you all to decide on what you think are the most dangerous motor racing venues. It can be anything from Langhorne and Knoxville to the disused F1 circuit in Syracuse and the Saint Ursannes-Les Rangiers hill climb in Switzerland.
In my opinion? Well, there are loads of circuits that have an extra bit of danger, but there are some that stand out.
However, to make more people comment, I'd like you all to suggest. I've fallen in love with the old era where anything was acceptable, as well as European hill climbs. There are hundreds of circuits which are not raced on anymore, such as the Syracuse circuit I mentioned, that had stone and conrete walls next to the Thruxton-esque circuit, and have got a huge knowlegde of loads of them and the events that took place there.
Please, feel free to comment on what you think, and I'll be expecting the obvious ones to go quickly.
