    Default Bad Crash Tonight !!

    Just got back from our 'Day 1' club meeting at Santa Pod raceway.

    You will probably know about the Jet Car that runs to 230-260 mph in 6 seconds... well it didnt tonight !!!

    Started OK..... then dramatically burst into flames, the parachute was ejected which imediatelly incinerated, and the car came to a slow halt right in front of us...

    The driver escaped after 45 seconds, staggered over to the guard rail and slumped over it... we think he is OK, but no confirmation of status since.....

    This picture below is of the car.... the driver IS STILL IN IT - at this point !!!

    I would be guessing Bowler, the whole place was earily quiet whilst they were trying to put the flames out.... even the commentry stopped...

    The guy who was commenting throughout the evening was shocked as he new the vehicle very well and the driver !!

    Because the vehicle was on fire for around 15 minutes.. it was reported that it would be written off

    I was there also, and it was very scarey....the car was travelling slowly, in a ball of flames - with the driver still in it of about 10 seconds or more......
    As for the car Fireforce 3 was due to run at 6:00pm and Fire Storm at 6:10pm so its a job to tell which one it was....I'm guessing it was the first one as I dont rememeber 2 going down at that point

    Oh God, how awful - I hope the guy was okay. Thats one of our favourite parts of going to the Pod - my youngest is a major Jet Car fan - you can't beat the rush as it blasts past you.

    This is really scary

    bit more to add today...Saw Fireforce 3 this afternnon, and it was mint..

    So it must have been the other jetcar..

    It was one of those awful moments when you hoped it was a hoax, but you knew tragically it was for real..
