Watch Potentially The Greatest Save In Rally History

Footage has resurfaced of a complete brake failure during a road stage and it's the scariest video you'll watch today

Remind me later

Rally drivers are amongst the most talented drivers in the world, but little can be done when an entire brake caliper fails in a braking zone. Watch as Irishman Bertie Fisher spears straight on at 120mph, narrowly avoiding children and other cars with superhuman car control.

The grainy 1980s footage can be overlooked given the driving talent on show, the driver using his gargantuan man potatoes to avoid what could have been a sickening collision.
