Watch This Lamborghini Huracan Drift, Donut, Crash Into Barrier, Then Catch Fire

A year ago, Hoonigan inaugurated the Burnyard Bash at the Irwindale Speedway. As the name implies, every Burnyard Bash promises to be wild for both the contestants as well as the public. On this occasion, Damon Fryer of Daily Driven Exotics cranks up his Huracan to eleven with quite a spectacular show of smoke, rubber pebbles, V10 thunder, a minor crash, and spontaneous combustion.

As the headline implies, the Lamborghini has wowed the Burnyard Bash with plenty of sideways action. Towards the end of the first clip we’ve provided at the end of this article, Damon overshoots a donut into the barrier without too much damage to the nose of the car. But for some reason or another, he taps the loud pedal for a brief moment, damaging the radiator as well.

At around the 2-minute and 10-second mark, things get crazier still. Damon mashes his foot on the accelerator, reducing the rear tires to slicks. A few seconds into this insanity, the Huracan’s rear end goes up in flames. Damon proceeds out of the vehicle in style, raising his arms to the cheers of the crowd while the on-track personnel race to put out the fire. At the very end of the clip, you will also notice one of these guys hitting a drone by accident.

There’s no denying the Burnyard Bash may seem childish to some car and motorsport enthusiasts, but then again, there’s nothing wrong with having fun. In a separate clip uploaded by Daily Driven Exotics, the Huracan starts without a single problem after the incident. Damon reports that his 'Racan idled fine, drove fine out of the arena, and didn’t drip a single drop of gas.

Last, but not in the least, why did the car’s rear end ignite into a ball of fire? A firefighter is much obliged to explain in the third clip's comments section.

YouTube user LiFE, a 15-year-plus firefighter, says “the smoke ignited." More to the point, "the heat generated from the tire friction and the exhaust combined with the perfect air/fuel mixture will cause smoke to ignite.”
