Gasoline, hot exhaust, intense racing conditions is that why this car burned to the ground. Nope. Bad relay under the dash. Why would you put a British relay in a Japanese car?

This is the same Honda that lost is hood during Round 4 of the NASA Western Endurance Racing Championship (WERC) at Thunderhill Raceway. This weekend it went crispy critter at the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) National Championships at Miller Motorsports Park.


The driver escaped without injury, bought another car (and new underwear). His crew swapped all the non-burned race goodies over to make qualifying the next day.
