    Does anyone have thoughts on why the fire is spread out over such a wide area? It appears that there are at least three areas with fire. One near his middle finger tip, one over his ring finger - and the large dark object at the far right?
    Not having seen this track - its hard for me to get a sense of how much distance is involved L to R...but it seems oddly widely distributed.

    They hit a tire wall, if burning gasoline touched tires in a few places, that might get several fires going, particularly if tires got loose.

    I was interviewed by a friend of mine who is an automotive journalist and accomplished amateur racer himself. After we discussed the main topic, he brought up this accident. I was unaware and we discussed instructing. He no longer does it for this reason. He was instructing for Dodge for many years, just saw too many friends injured or killed. It's sobering to me every time and my level of tolerance for any BS when I am in the right seat is very low. I have expressed this with others I instruct with and fortunately they have been very receptive.

    I believe you cannot replace the "personal" feedback with data, especially for a beginner/intermediate driver. That said I have removed my passenger seat and dont plan to be anyone's passenger on the track.

    Typically, there is right-side brake for the instructor, and they like to give hand signals.
