That time when my wheel fell off at 120mph...

This ‘incident’ happened when I was testing at Donington Park back in 2013.

Entering the first corner it felt like the tyre had started to deflate so I backed off for the entrance to Craners. However, even with a lift, I was still entering the series of turns at around 110-120mph. It was at this point that the left rear wheel worked itself loose!

Thankfully the car didn’t roll but it did need a new floor.
