Had an off-track last month. I used my fire extinguisher I had inside the cobra and luckily the Fire service also responded. Looks like the side exhaust lit the dry grass on fire, then that lit the fuel plume from my dislodged fuel fill hose (from high speed side impact) causing a fireball high up in the air. I had the Element Fire extinguisher but it wasn't installed. Highly recommend a fire extinguisher or system and fire suit if you're planning to track these beasts. Maybe switch out and install a FIA fuel cell.
