Video of the week: Japan

In 1998, Japanese racing driver Tetsuya Ota was involved in a chain reaction collision during a GT championship race. Ota was trapped in his Ferrari for more than 50 seconds while exposed to 800-degree temperatures. The safety crew was slow to respond as fellow drivers frantically extinguished the flames. The result ended with serious burns to Ota and a lawsuit against track promoters and sponsors.
