130MPH Brake Failure Crash at CT Sports Car Challenge

Even though we’ve failed to experience it personally, we’re pretty sure that there are probably few feelings you can get that compare to brake failure at 130mph. That’s exactly what this Nissan 370z driver experienced at this race at the circuit of the Americas.

At such a high rate of speed, the gravel trap proved futile as the car soars into the wall. It looks like the wall was well padded and the announcers mentioned nothing about injury, so as far as we know the driver walked away ok. We’d venture to assume that he may have a few choice words with his crew, though.
