about a year ago at a track event at streets of willow, a 914 caught fire at a restaurant during an after-race dinner. a fuel leak probably was the cuplrit.

in any event, the magnesium in the engine compartment burned so hot that firefighters could not extinguish the fire. the car burned totally to the ground. the driver had put a tire in the passenger seat, and apparently that exploded like a bomb and created quite the commotion on top of the flames.
