Ferrari bursts into flames, then returns to track moments later

BY foxsports • June 13, 2015

A scary situation occurred just after the halfway mark of the 83rd running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans when the No. 66 JMW Motorsport Ferrari F458 Italia erupted into flames while refueling early Sunday morning.

The safety crew managed to extinguish the fire as fast as possible, keeping the crew members safe and limiting the damage to the car. The team then wheeled the Ferrari into the garage, made quick repairs and got the car back on track.

Unfortunately the team dropped to 10th in class, but considering the car was completely on fire, it's a miracle to still have it running.
