Brake failure at 155mph causes huge crash at SUPERCARS race series
Nick Percat and Lee Holdsworth were involved in a frightening high-speed crash during the first race of the Australian Supercars series.
Percat suffered from brake failure on the first corner at the Albert Park Circuit. He veered off track in an attempt to stop his car but it ended in a huge shunt involving Lee Holdsworth, sending his own car into the crash barriers. Both cars suffered heavy rear-end damage as a result of the smash.
Percat emerged from his Holden visibly shaken and looked to have the wind knocked out of him but other than the damage to the two cars, both drivers managed to walk away with no major injuries.
