Has this ever happened to you??????

Here's one for you, two weeks ago in my 159 i was accelerating hard from a junction when the car behaved like i was revving her at max while keeping the clutch pedal down. I brought it to a halt but pressing the clutch pedal made no difference and it continued to rev like hell and i had to switch the car off. burning clutch smell ensued but no warnings on dash etc. started up and off i went - i put it down to my mats trapping the pedals.

But tonight after pulling out of a parking bay it happened again, I stopped the car and put the light on thinking i would see the mats causing the problem but both the clutch pedal and accelerator pedal were in their normal position and the mats were miles from them. now i'm stumped - what the hell is going on!!???
