Motorsport is dangerous!

Stefan Ziegler drove his Lister on the Goodwood racetrack when he had a bad surprise…


Due to a broken fuel line, significant amounts of fuel were pumped into the engine bay. From there, the fuel spilled across the entire car and passenger room and burst into flames. Not only the entire engine compartment but the whole passenger room was instantaneously in severe flames. With a big jump, I managed a lucky escape. I must have been in this intense fire for close to a minute - my racewear set prevented the worst and I suffered only minor burns on one leg.

This recalls us one more that racewear isn’t an option. It’s really decisive all the time because this incident happened on a track day, not even in a race week-end.
