    Frame clip from the video

    The explosion appears to come out of both the engine compartment rear ventilation and lifted up the front hood.

    I am surprised he wasn't badly burned.

    i have seen this a few times over the the past 15 years at races (more in the pits then on the water) but being in the US it was always day time so it was more of a pop than a blast you could see, lucky nobody was hurt and all the boats were able to race ...I blame half of them on WD-40 and eroded spark plug boots and msd..
