V8 Supercar driver Karl Reindler was forced to run for his life after his Holden Commodore went up in flames at the beginning of a race in Perth, Australia. A rear end collision with fellow driver Steve Owen punctured the car's fuel cell, causing it to explode in the unbelievable manner you see here. While Reindler's $600,000 Holden was destroyed beyond repair, both drivers involved in the crash managed to escape with relatively minor injuries.
