Taking to the track is one thing. Anything could wrong as you watch out for other drivers, and hope the vehicle stays entirely mechanically sound. Sometimes, worse things happen, like losing your brakes.
Again, losing your brakes is one thing, but losing them at the hairpin at Sebring International Raceway is another. And it’s a scary thing. The driver of this Chevrolet Camaro, who has been identified as Audi USA Manager of Motorsport, Tristan Herbert, handles the happenings as gracefully as he can.
Herbert maneuvers to the run off section of the track, before taking the Camaro off the beaten path and plowing through a metal gate. However, just to top it off, a pickup truck begins to exit as Herbert bajas through the grass after smashing through the gate. He quickly steers in-between a few trees and the truck to keep everyone safe. He ultimately holds it together, cruising through the parking lot and back into a safe area before coming to a complete stop.
And with that, enjoy your oh-shit moment for the day.
