Fireball engulfs nitro funny car at Perth Motoplex February 7, 2019

Posted by bohdan.warchomij in : Metaphor Online , trackback

Perth father of two Anthony Begley walked away  from this explosion without so much as a scratch.

The devastating force of the nitro methane blew the body and bonnet off the car with Begley, protected by a firewall,

titanium hand shields, a fire suit and a helmet  connected to an oxygen tank was trapped in the centre of the fireball

and invisible for the second of the explosion..

He plans to be back on the track later in February in Victoria.

Trackside photographer Phil Luyer caught the footage from 30 metres away and felt the heat of the explosion.

Understandably the photo made the front page of The West Australian.
