Corvette Club Racer Crashes at Sebring into The Twilight Zone

Surreal in Sebring

Watch the video taken from the dash cam of this Corvette racing at Sebring International Raceway when it loses all braking ability. Isn’t it like watching Apocalypse Now from a front row seat on the Disneyland Jungle Boat ride? All seemed well, the Corvette was pulling strong, screaming down the straightaway when the brakes failed coming into Turn 7’s hairpin. The driver kept his cool and shot down the escape road, but the runoff just wasn’t long enough before the Corvette crashed through a chain-link fence and nearly parked itself in the lobby of the Chateau Elan Hotel & Conference Center. It must have been an interesting drive back to the pits.
