This Is What A Brake Failure at 140 MPH Feels Like

Hat Tip to Tom R.

This is pro driver Dylan Murcott doing pre-season testing for the 2014 IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge around Daytona in the Mitchum Motorsports BMW 128i. You can skip directly to 1:38 to see the brake failure or even better, watch from the beginning to get a real sense for how exceptionally fast and unexpectedly this happens at 140 MPH.
