VIR Crash 2009 involving Jack Hall (black vette going slowly)
This is the video of the bone head that took me out at VIR. I was leading
the T1 race about to LAP Jack Hall (black vette ahead). Johnny Miller and
I were lapping in the 2:01s and Jack was just cruising around...his fastest
lap being a 2:17. He moved to the left at the top of the esses and slammed
on his brakes. He should have maintained his line on the right side of the
road (like the A-sedan car the lap before); but instead decided to move
left right in front of me.

VIR T1 brake failure wreck
My driver side front brake line rubbed the inside of the wheel, and
eventually failed right after I get into the brakes in T1. You can see me
check the brakes before the braking zone like I normally do, then I apply
the brakes at marker 5. They worked for a bit then the pedal hit the floor.
I tried pumping once and got nothing. After that I tried to downshift but
panicked too much and just yanked the ebrake. I put it back down and exited
the track going straight. The grass was still wet so I pulled the ebrake
again to get the car to turn around. Even with my HANS I had no desire to
hit the tire wall head on at the speed I was carrying. I could have stayed
on the pavement longer and gone off to the right, but the wall comes up
sooner there. Plus the car seems to have only suffered body damage from the
impact. I banged out some panels, refit the rear bumper, mounted my
Hoosiers and took first place in TTA at the end of this day. My neck was
sore the next day, but I think that was merely from sleeping in the back of
