    Watch Nick Mason Crash his McLaren f1 GTR

    When you drive as much as Pink Floyd's Nick Mason, you're bound to have an accident or two.

    Mason was driving his McLaren F1 GTR over the weekend at the 75th Goodwood Members' Meeting as part of two high-speed demonstrations of GT1s. Fortunately Saturday's demonstration went without a hitch, but on Sunday, Mason *really* went for it.

    According to a bystander that Mason had been speaking to before the demonstration, Nick said that he was rearing to go as Saturday had been so enjoyable but that he was promising himself he wouldn't overdo it. We all know what it's like making promises to ourselves we can't keep.

    Fortunately he came out of it unscathed, having run off at St Mary’s complex and hitting on of the few places on the track where there's a tyre wall to soften the blow.

    • Video removed??

    • I've watched the video a couple of times, and there's something going on out of shot, all you see is a big cloud of tyre smoke. I'm curious, did he spin before heading to the barriers, did he lose it avoiding another incident or is the tyre smoke from others getting out of the way ?

      He wasn't the only person to re-arrange the tyre walls during the weekend - the Jaguar E-Type that just about wiped out a Ferrari 250GTO ended up in the tyre wall too.

    • He's the drummer from Pink Floyd, he can probably afford to buy another one with the loose change he'll find down the back of his sofa!
