1994 - Le Mans - The leading Toyota encounter gearbox problems.
The overall win should have gone to Toyota, which led from Saturday evening as the Dauer Porsches lost time with driveshaft problems. With about 90 minutes to go, The leading Toyota 94C-V of Eddie Irvine, Jeff Krosnoff and Mauro Martini could taste the champagne, but then the car's gear linkage broke. Kronsoff stopped next to the pit exit lane with no drive: a weld in the gear linakge had broken. He got out and managed to engage third gear into the gearbox, and went to the pits for a repair that took 13 minutes. The Dauer tried to rob themselves of victory by losing time with both cars, but it took so long to sort out the Toyota's gearshift problems that it was academic.

A rather nasty crash at 1987 Sears Point IMSA race. The guy survives something like this only to get killed years later (2001) on a bicycle.
