Yeah, he said the brakes failed completly which was a little scary! You heard him change down and then there was a huge clonk and the engine was the only braking, hence the revs rising pretty high!

I can only guess the hoses probably went, leaking the hyrdaulic fluid all over the place with zero braking available!

Didn't seem very smooth and I heard him hitting the limiter a few times, probably a better driver could have done a better job???
