Ferrari P4/5 racecar in flames at the Nurburgring 24 Hours
Rich-man James Glickenhaus’ custom Ferrari P4/5 Competizione caught fire after setting an all-time lap record for a Ferrari-powered car during the qualifying session at the recent 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
At the pits, a small fuel spill caused a flash fire. The incident was momentary and the fire was quickly extinguished. The extent of damage is not known, but the car remained in pursuit of the chequered flag.
Eventually, the team went on to win first place in the Alternate Energy Class as a Hybrid and was placed 12th overall, beating many of its counterparts that included many other factory teams such as McLaren, Aston Martin, Toyota, Jaguar, Toyota, Corvette and Ford GT.
