New Year's resolution: Learn to brake better

To paraphrase that woman, you can never brake too late or too hard...
Well, I guess you could brake too hard but never mind, point is, we all can all go in deeper and later as demonstrated below by Alex Buncombe. Alex is driving a Nissan GTR GT3 at Donnington in the final round of the 2012 British GT Championship.

I know what you're thinking, it's a GTR, everyone's a hero in a GTR ( at least on the internet!). Buncombe is no slouch in extremely analog machines.

( the top video I found on Sean Johnston's twitter feed.


  1. Great stuff as always, but one little nitpick:
    It would not be an "analog" car but a mechanical one.

  2. Great driving in both case. Most notable in the GTR is the 'soft hands'. Wonderful technique. Just watch how relaxed his hands are. Fantastic.

    1. Hey Upside Down Stig, nice to hear from you again here, how have you been? Cheers

    2. Hey AC... all good down here. No race budget at the moment but can't complain about a christmas break avoiding sunburn, swimming in the (warm) ocean and enjoying time with the family.

      Suffering motorsport withdrawals of course (driving or watching). Are you heading to Daytona?


  3. When he out-braked the Aston at the 4:30 mark I just knew he was going off heading into that chicane! Not sure how he pulled it off, but this video is an absolute braking clinic, thank you for sharing this!

  4. Thats one hell of a display of car placment & skilled corner entry. We've all been schooled!
