This driver is obviously no stranger to incidents while racing, this one isnt as bad as the other one, but it could have been.

did u hear what he said at the end when he was climbing out "dude we got a fire". He seemed quite relaxed when saying it, as if its a daily occurance.

I had a few beers with the JBS team at a Miami race a few years ago. They were friends of Ian Cutler, and were racing a rather nice Donzi at the time.

I took this pic from my boat whilst we were cruising round the pits.
