A MAJOR component of ‘doing a burnout’ is the donut. Space on the burnout pad is limited so spinning around as quickly as possible with the tyres billowing smoke is what it’s all about.
However, when your car is as tall and narrow as Dean Jury’s little V8-powered Suzuki minivan then things can get crazy. Dean usually turns his van left to use his own weight to counterbalance the spin, but this time he turned right and tipped the little van on its side.
This set off a sequence of events that saw the transmission lock up and explode, puncturing his coolant tank and spreading debris all over the pad. Dean escaped through the windscreen hole with minimal injury.
