Look Ma, No Brakes! by Michael Accardi March 28, 2016 Share Comments Audi USA Manager of Motorsport Tristan Herbert has slick instincts behind the wheel of a runaway Camaro. He was wheeling the Total Performance Racing Camaro Z/28 fairly hard during the Trans Am race at Sebring, when as he approached the famed hairpin, he discovered the Camaro had no brakes. That’s when he casually chucked it up a slip road, crashed through a gate, dodged a pickup truck and cruised through the parking lot of Sebring International Raceway’s Chateau Élan Hotel. The story goes that a zip tie broke which led to the brake line rubbing the wheel until fully letting go and forcing Herbert into evasive action.
