Video: Clutch explodes in the middle of a car race

You ever had one of those ‘I-wish-I was-in-his-shoes’ moments?
Yeah, at some point everybody goes through that, but what if we can show you what it’s like to be exactly in another person’s shoes?

This video was taken from inside a funny car while it was in a competition. Everything was running smoothly until the driver shifts to second gear. Then all hell breaks loose as the entire clutch explodes, temporarily disconnecting the feed of the video until it reappears a few seconds later with the driver helplessly scrambling with the transmission.

It’s a unique look at the goings-on behind the life of a race car driver and the potential accidents it comes with. Maybe now, you’ll be more careful what you wish for.

Whoa, that was a pretty big explosion. Lucky it was all that happened to the car. If I was that, I would have probably panicked and turned the car somewhere ending up on a wall or something.

I really need to go to the nearest auto shop here to check my clutch and I think it’s not for racing car driver only. As a driver, I don’t want to experience that horrific incident just like on this video where I don’t imagine myself on that note where my car is like a time bomb that will explode anytime.
