Accident at 180 KMPH - Brake Failure- Weldborough Pass - Targa Tasmania 2010 -Stephen Bradford
Caused by an ABS Brake failure, due to wiring snapping in half through a
dip in the road. We were running top 10 after day 1, a lot of cars had
accidents in Wet conditions the previous day. Car was running really well
and we were ready to start pushing with consistent top 10 times.
At 3:34 on the video the car bottoms out after going over a crest (wiring
to ABS is snapped), then into a dip in the road on a left hand bend --
there is very loud noise as the cat bottoms out. For the next 200 meters I
feel the steering and suspension still feels in check & then press on at
full pace. I drive for about another 2km at full pace with no sign that the
wiring to the ABS System had snapped in half when the car bottomed out.
Over the next few km's under hard braking the tyres don't lock up without
the ABS functioning. At high speed close to 200KMPH (4:14 on video) the car
gets light over a few bumps and locks up over a few reflectors on the
centre of the road under brakes. As a driver this isn't something you are
expecting to happen, especially with no warning light on the dash for the
ABS having had failed (explained below). After washing off some speed we
leave the road at close to 100 kmph, then the fence hooks underneath the
car as we get airborne and we pull out at least 30* posts -- this most
likely stopped the car from rolling and washed off a lot of speed -- a bit
like the hook on an aircraft carrier (we still ended up 200 meters into a
paddock). Luckily there wasn't a tree in the runoff area....
The workshop that re-wired the ABS ran it along the ridge of the internal
guard and when the car bottomed out it snapped it clean in half. Also the
previous owner of the car had removed the light globe for the ABS system
(which would tell you if it was faulty), when it was refitted the workshop
didn't mention the globe wasn't connected & nor was it tested by
them........ Ended up being an expensive exercise, but thankfully nobody
was injured. Cars can always be repaired or replaced.
Huge crash in a 73 Mach 1 Mustang in Targa Tasmania 2012
This is the entire stage and huge crash we had on TS10 Elephant Saddle in
Targa Tasmania 2012. We had MANY requests for a slow motion replay of the
in-car footage so here it is. You have to wait for the end, but it's
probably worth it.
We have been asked many times what caused the accident, and it's a typical
concoction of many factors. But ultimately it was a poor change down to 3rd
that tipped the scales, and the road conditions didn't allow me to catch it
like I had many times before. I won't bother with listing the contributing
factors because it may sound like I (the driver) am looking for excuses!
The main thing is that both Dad (navigator) and I are OK, and no other
crews were involved. The car shell is badly damaged, but the running gear
is OK. We have a new shell on its way, and we will start the rebuilding
process and get Junior back on the road. It might take a year, it might
take two years. It might take 10 years, but Junior will be back on the
So enjoy the footage, excuse the damage to a beautiful car, and please
leave nice comments.
