Lost the quarter final to Hight

But the quarter final against the reigning champ and number one qualifier Robert Hight didn't work out well. Even though it was a great side-by-side race.

At the finish line Jonnies engine gave up with a bang and flames.

jump
It's important for the driver to get out of the burning car as quick as possible. First of all for his own sake. But also to get the body up as soon as possible to make it easier for the safety safari to put the fires out and save as much of the pieces and parts as possible.

burnt suit
The fire suit did it's job.

tired engine
The 10'000 hp engine is a bit tired. Now we got some job to do.
