I just watched the video of this, very scary! In the commentary they mention driving over train tracks, this sounds extremely dangerous to me, if someone gets a puncture from running over the tracks it could be very nasty indeed!

Tony Kannan suffered a brake failure at 180mph - it was fortunate that Helios car took some of the speed off Tony's car - the Marshals where also very fortunate not to have been hit.Thankfully no injuries and a third place finish from the back of the grid was well deserved (if a little fortunate).

The accident could have happended at any circuit.

Havent seen the accident but from the reports looks like it was very serious. Just glad he is ok. Brake failure at close to 200mph doesnt even bear thinking about. I think it happened to Mark Blundell years ago in CART, again he got away with it but just shouldnt happen
