At 12 years old, 80k miles, including 61 trackdays, this is a video of the moment my RX-8 engine decided enough was enough. Doing what it does best, driving down Paddock Hill at the iconic Brands Hatch circuit on 2 Dec 2016, a stationary bearing finally gave out. A horrible noise, but I managed to drive off the track and into the paddock safely. So, engine rebuild time!

  • Sounds like the rear e-shaft bearing melted.
