Watch NICK MASON of PINK FLOYD Crash His McLaren F1 GTR20 March 2017
This one’s going to hurt for car lovers: Former PINK FLOYD drummer Nick Mason took his McLaren F1 GTR race car out for a spin at the Goodwood Circuit yesterday — and suffered a mishap on a parade lap, running into a wall and damaging the vehicle.
Mason, who was driving at a low speed when he hit the wall, is said to have endured the wreck without injury; as the report puts it, he “got out of the car and was walking around afterward.”
While it’s wonderful to know Mason wasn’t hurt in the crash, it was still a sad end to what should have been a fun day for the drummer, who spoke with reporters before driving and talked about taking a rare opportunity to spend some time behind the wheel of his “wonderful road car” (which also happened to be worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $3.7 million).
As Mason told the Sunday Times last year, his extensive car collection wasn’t built with investments in mind — he really just enjoys working on and driving cars.
“Most of my collection has a racing pedigree, and I’ve raced many of the cars myself, but their increasing value is incidental,” he said. “People who pay a lot of money for a car have one thing in common — they all feel complete idiots, no matter how rich they are. When I paid £35,000 for the 250 GTO in 1977, I felt naggingly stupid to be spending so much — I certainly didn’t buy it because I thought it would be worth £30m in 2016.”
