We reported yesterday
about Fifth Gear
presenter Jason Plato's horrific experience piloting a Caparo T1 at 150 MPH when the supercar
literally burst into flames, and now we have the first images of the incident to show you. Hosted over at AutoTrader.co.uk
, the two pics include one from a camera mounted on the car's body that shows the front tires locking up, and you can also see Plato's helmet in the rearview mirror. The second shows the orange Caparo T1 abandoned on the tarmac and smoldering. Plato suffered burns to the back of his neck, face and hands while bringing the car to a stop so he could jump out. Despite that, the professional racer plans to keep his commitment to compete this Sunday in the British Touring Car Championship season finale race.
