VIDEO: Fire engulfs pit-lane and car in scary Supercars incident

There was a seriously scary moment in the Supercars round at the weekend as a fuel spillage left both the pit-lane and a car in flames.

The Watpack Townsville 400 was lit up as Nick Percat sped away from his service at Brad Jones Racing, igniting fuel that had been spilled in the process as the nozzle appeared to malfunction.

Percat said: “My seat was real hot and I thought to myself, this must be bigger than I can see. Then I got to the end of pitlane and saw the light was red, which was probably a good thing, because I would've gone onto the track and hoped that it went out with speed.

“I could definitely feel it was hot and then when the smoke started when I stopped, I was trying to get out as quick as I could and let the guys extinguish it.”
