    Mk2 Astra engine explosion

    Just been reading a report on Eurodragster about this weekends NitrOlympx at Hockenheim when i clicked on a youtube link.

    I have seen many engine explosions during the years ive been into Top Fuel Drag racing but i have never seen a normal road car go like this.
