A local racing driver is seen escaping from his burning race car during a practice session at Dezzi Raceway.
As cited by wheels24, the 55-year-old mentioned that the fire was caused when a fuel line ruptured spraying fuel directly into a hot engine bay, which then ignited the fuel.
The driver added: “Fire is probably a race driver's worst fear. I was just starting my first flying lap of practice on Friday morning when the engine died unexpectedly and the next thing I knew was that I was literally sitting in a fire pit with flames all around me.”
He suffered no injuries.
