R34 Burns at Japfest 2011

Now this would ruin your day out!

From the driver. As posted on the GTROC forum. I have added some grammar, apologies if English is poor in some areas:

First (track) session breather pipe split by the turbo, changed the pipe but didn't have the time to clean all the oil off before next session

Second session, 2nd lap, slowed down and came in due to smoke in the foot well .
As it had started getting worse I stopped just by the ambulance and fire area at which point the aircon radiator exploded giving me a nose bleed. I got out walked round the front, went to walk back to get extinguisher behind my seat but was shouted at and pushed by the marshals to get back.

I was pretty dazed and shocked so I just had to stand back while it burned, as the fire truck guy was directing traffic to the pit lane

Totally my fault, next time to clean off the oil and waste a £35 session then loose the car... hopefully i'll bounce back stripped most of it last night interior is fine loom is done!! the main man mr Julian smith rang me this morning offering 1 can of Rio and 1 r34 gtr engine wiring loom

thanks to all that helped me get the car home i'm truly grateful





Alas, sooner or later this is the way of all things!
