Tire fail - bad

Post  Valentin K on Wed Oct 13, 2010 12:23 pm

Left rear tire failure for Fabian Coulthard at about 300 kmh / 187 mph during the first lap of this year's Bathurst 1000.
Fortunately he walked away from it.



By the way, they set a new distance record this year - it only took them 19 years to improve the record of Godzilla (Skyline R32 GT-R Group A) using their E85-powered live axle 630 hp supertankers.

Ouch !
Reminds me of this video I saw a few days back :


"French driver Caroline Grifnée was forced onto the left hand side grass, hit the curb, causing her to bounce upside down back onto the track and once hitting the grass again flipped 5 times during the Megane Cup Trophy Race at Silverstone. She was not injured but taken by Ambulance to the medical centre with a neck brace."
