    Default red vxr engine bay fire jnc 20 M1

    My mates just rung me from jnc 20 of the M1 he’s been on a weekend at Santa Pod Raceway he did really good with his red vxr so he says lol but sadly on the way back up the M1 his head gasket has just blown leaking all the oil all over the engine bay and it set on fire a bit of a bad end to a good week end so maybe any one coming up the M1 today might have seen him,

    So Vx cocked up then? Looks like they are going to have a large repair bill. Watch them try to weedle out of that one.
