370Z Brake Failure At 154 MPH caused the driver to crash straight through the safety wall at an alarming speed. Tim Bell the driver of the 370 Z in the video experienced a brake failure at the Circuit of the Americas during the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race last week, that rendered the car useless, blasting it through the safety barrier.

Tim does a great job to weave through the other cars as soon as he notices that the brakes are gone, notice how he pushes hard on the brake at 1:34 then the fluid starts to leak.

While Tim managed to score several positions during the first lap, just as he reached a hard corner after a long straight which had the car at fifth gear reaching almost 154mph, he reaches for the brake only to find out that it has gone MIA, he quickly does a great job as he downshifts gears to slow the car then pitches it sideways before slamming into the safety barrier.

Just minutes after the horrific 154mph crash, Tim Bell un-belts and climbs out of the 370z Race spec car aided by the safety crew.
