Crash & Burn For V8 Supercar

What you are about to see is a driver by the name of David Besnard who barely escaped the bursting flames coming from his crashed V8 Supercar. The driver lost the control of his car while he was doing more than 143 mph (230 km/h) due to brake failure on the 112th lap of the 1000 kilometer race that was organized on the second weekend of this month in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia.

The car hit the wall rear end first which lead to the rupture of the fuel cell. The fuel that was spilled on the track ignited and the driver unstrapped himself and managed to walk away from the car. Who knows what might have happened if those acting marshals haven’t been on the scene right away.
