Narrative:
After a normal touchdown on the Runway 21 at Sywell, the pilot applied heavy braking in order to vacate the active runway quickly. While decelerating below 15 mph, with heavy braking still applied and the engine idling, the aircraft encountered what the pilot described as a “significant undulation in the runway surface”. At this point the nose landing gear collapsed and the aircraft slid to a rest. Both occupants were wearing lap and diagonal harnesses and escaped uninjured. The pilot considered that the combination of heavy braking and the undulated surface of the grass runway caused the nose landing gear to collapse.
