Lexus supercar catches fire at the Goodwood Festival of speed

These images show a Lexus RCF GT3 that exploded into flames at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018 as it re-entered the pit.

Fortunately, driver Scott Pruett managed to escape out of the Lexus uninjured as fire brigade, pit technicians and stewards tackled the blaze.

The cause of the fire is as yet unknown.

The Lexus RC F GT3 is powered by a 5.4-litre V8 engine with six-speed sequential racing transmission. To keep the weight of the car down to a light 1,300kg, much of the high performance souped-up car is made from carbon fibre including engine air-box and dashboard, bonnet, bumpers, rear spoiler, roof, door panels.

 

Since you’re here …

It may worry you that much of our mainstream press is increasingly reporting with a strong right-wing bias. Most of our media is owned by a handful of offshore billionaires with personal agendas.

More worrying is the staggering decline in independent, investigative journalism. It costs a lot to produce, so many publications facing an uncertain future can no longer fund it.

With nobody to hold the rich and powerful to account, or report on the issues that don't fit with the mainstream 'narrative', your help is needed.

You can help support free, independent journalism for as little as 50p. Every penny we collect from donations supports vital investigative journalism.
