Andy on fire in America - true story!

Andy Meyrick was only slightly injured after a fuel line rupture triggered a fire inside the DeltaWing car (pictured left before the fire) during the 2nd practice session after he had set 6th quickest time in P1. However the damage was too extensive to repair at the track and the car was withdrawn. Andy released an official statement, 'I  was looking to post another quick time when a fuel line rupture triggered a fire inside the cockpit and engine area' The intensity of the fire meant Andy was taken to the on-site medical centre but was later released with just a minor burn to his face and some blisters!

“It’s really disappointing not to be racing here being so quick in practice on Friday,” said Andy. “Unfortunately the fire damaged the car too much for the team to repair it and get it back out on track. I was extremely lucky to walk away with only a few minor burns and a couple of blisters really. I want to say a big thank you to all the marshals and medical staff at the circuit as well as the team and everybody who sent messages.

I’m absolutely fine and will be looking forward to getting back in the car again soon.”
