Burnout competition goes disastrously wrong

Published: 03 August 2009

Both bikes caught fire and one rider ended up in hospital after a burnout competition went disastrously wrong at the weekend.

Neil de Jersey’s Yamaha FZR1000 EXUP burst into flames shortly after he stopped his burnout, with the fire leaping onto his burnout rival’s GSX-R too.

The Suzuki’s flames were soon put out but the EXUP received a throrough roasting.

De Jersey, who is said to be recovering well from his burns, won the competition, won a set of tyres, but he has no bike to put them on.
