Try Not To Cry As Pink Floyd Drummer Nick Mason Crashes His McLaren F1 GTR At Goodwood

Of all the cars you'd never, ever want to crash, the McLaren F1 GTR is right up there. At least the guy who binned this one at Goodwood at the weekend is the owner...

Brace yourself for this one. Nick Mason, the famous car enthusiast and drummer for Pink Floyd, has crashed his McLaren F1 GTR while driving it at Goodwood.

He was part of a demonstration ‘race’ of stunning old GT cars at last weekend’s 75th Goodwood Members’ Meeting, including a Ferrari F40 and Porsche Carrera GT, when he apparently lost control at the first part of the St Mary’s complex, hitting the tyre wall.

The 73-year-old music legend was thankfully unhurt, but the automotive legend sadly wasn’t, as you can see from these pictures. The main broadcast didn’t catch the whole incident on tape and it all unfolds quite suddenly. Jumping to the action just as the impact occurs is the sort of thing that could give a car guy an aneurysm.

On a car this valuable we’re positive that the damage is repairable. Rowan Atkinson’s F1 suffered a worse fate and that was fixable. That doesn’t stop us wanting to cry a bit, though. Or a lot. If anyone needs us we’ll be in the men’s room, erm, because we think we have something in our eyes…

Still have to give this guy kudos for putting such an amazing car on the track where it deserves to be and not turning it into garage queen!!

I agree. Since its an F1 it will be rebuilt and mclaren still produce the CF bits for the car so its not a huge deal. Will probably be very expensive though.

All in all, it’s just another car in the wall.

We don’t need no Anti-Lock brakes
We don’t need no traction control…
