i saw a similar blower backfire in charlotte earlier this year (that apparently got some news coverage over here) that i could feel sitting at almost the other end of the track.

hard to imagine what it must feel like sitting a metre or 2 away from the explosion.

Fwiw, a mate at my cricket club was there that day.
