Did my 4th autocross today, 1st in D Stock class (1st 3 were in novice class). Have to wait for the final postings but looked like it was down to me and a '12 Camaro for 1st place.
Watched a Mitsubishi Gen 10 EVO turn the hottest lap of the day.......
So hot he was on fire.......
The core of his oil pressure switch blew out during his 2nd run, spewed oil onto the exhaust manifold which lit it off. He was trailing fire for about 50 yards until some one got him red flagged and off the course. Fortunate for him it happened where it did, lot of available fire extinguishers. If it had happened on the highway he'd have been toast, for real.
