LIKE ALL TORQUE, NO TROUSERS?
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.
