[VIDEO] Corvette Catches Fire During Burnout Contest

by Keith Cornett on January 19, 2011

This video was taken at the 10th Anniversary Envy Frenzy Car Show in Kingston, NY. Let this serve as a lesson for you. You can’t put out a fuel fire with water.

Although the hotel was structurally sound following the accident, the same can’t be said for the C3 Corvette. The driver was issued a ticket for improper lane usage.
