Driver Calum Lockie rescued a Shelby Daytona Coupe recreation from burning to a sharp by sprinkling it to pothole fireballs.
Most times when we watch a race car get the fire during a competition, the vehicle is stopped and the driver comes out of the car, either with or without the help of trams.
But not Lockie. He chose to take over the safety car on the track and get as fast as possible to the pit track after he realized that there were flames behind his seat and crushed the cockpit in his classic car at the Donington Historic Festival 2019 earlier in May.
The driver put up the video on social media and had the following in his post: "Once you have passed the event, the car is broken, you know that you have to get it back to the fire truck in the pit lane or it will be toast, then you will over the safety car.
"This is as close as I ever want to get to a marshmallow."
The fire was caused by a gearbox that was inserted into the differential and caused overheating that burned the fuel tank. one was repaired and declared ready to compete only three weeks later.
