Driver forced to flee after his supercar explodes

A race-car driver who was forced to flee for his life when his V8 Supercar exploded in flames, has somehow escaped serious injury.

Karl Reindler had been competing in an event in Australia when he was rear-ended at an estimated speed of 150km/h.

This caused the V8 Supercar to jump into the air and the impact punctured the fuel cell prompting a massive fireball eruption.

The £400,000 came to a stop at the side of the Barbagallo Raceway track in Perth and as it continued to burn, fans feared the worst.

But somehow the 26-year-old driver managed to get out and run away from the burning vehicle, escaping with only burns to his hands and face.
