Pistonheads: when good throttle cables go bad

Wow. I have no idea how the hell he managed to avoid the manifold, flywheel, power belts, etc etc.

Mind you I was surprised at the lack of the ashtrays and the fact the co driver didn't have one lit. If he hadn't spent soooo much time tagging the limiter then maybe it wouldn't have snapped or he might have been quick enought to finish before it snapped.
