(not relating to fire but) did'nt you have the engine rebuilt recently, did you not have to run it in at all, as 160mph seem bit extream for running in

should be able to kind of work it out by looking at the fire damage and seeing where it is the worst. then lok to see if there is any connector, fuel pipe which may have caused the fire.

what did you recently get done to the car?
