Beloved Herbst Landshark On Fire at 2016 NORRA 1000 – Exclusive Video
Flames end Shark’s Mexican 1000 bid
We’ve been chasing the 2016 NORRA Mexican 1000 -- the happiest race on earth -- all week and have been having a blast. Unfortunately, we heard some rather unhappy news across the radio: the famous Terrible Herbst Motorsports Landshark was on the side of the race-course up in flames.
We were glad to hear the drivers were all OK but heartbroken knowing that the legendary truggy was burning. We haven’t gotten official word on what started the fire, but based on the exclusive video we were able to attain, we think it was probably the transmission. Thankfully it was contained to the front part of the vehicle and didn’t make it to the fuel cell or the damage could have been much worse.
While everyone waits to find out what started the blaze, the off-road community is mourning the loss of the legendary Landshark and hoping they will rebuild. We will update you right here on fourwheeler.com as soon as we get more information. Until we do, you can watch the disheartening video of the truggy on fire below. Hopefully this will be the only bad news to come out of the 2016 NORRA Mexican 1000.
