Boucles de Spa Classic Rally, Belgium, 18th February 2013

Citröen WRC driver Mikko Hirvonen was competing at the rally in a 1985 Citroen Visa 1000 Pistes.

Just before the end of the 2nd stage,a  fuel line broke in the engine bay and sprayed fuel onto the exhaust, causing a massive fire in the engine bay.
Both Hirvonen and co-driver Ilka Minor - Evgeny Novikov’s usual co-driver, who was deputising for a sick Jarmo Lehtinen – managed to escape the car without injury and helped to put out the flames.
