Hyundai Genesis Coupe Drift Car Fire

Info From Licensor: "While practicing for a local drift competition, a malfunction with a fuel breather line caused the fuel to leak down the back of the race car. When the car back fired it ignited the unburnt fuel that was dripping out of the fuel breather.

The driver continued to complete the entire run, with the whole rear end of the car engulfed in flames, before pulling the fire suppression system and evacuating the vehicle after the run was finished.
Driver and passenger were completely unscathed and the car ended up taking minimal damage."
