Both the crashes happened somewhere around Napa Valley in California where the event was organized. In the first incident, which was reported by Frederick Bayles on Instagram, a red Ferrari 812 Superfast collided head-on with a tree at a vineyard in Napa Valley. The car had a black license plate with the Robb Report logo on it. As you can see in the clip below, the collision seems to be a serious one but no more details have been divulged. The condition of the occupants is also unknown.
In the second, more serious accident at the same event, a vehicle which the police describes as a “2018 Ford” collided head-on with a Honda on Highway 128 (about 20 miles north of the event). Five people including three who were senior executives at the magazine and were probably acting as judges and two occupants of the Honda sustained major injuries. At least one of them had to be airlifted to the hospital. The California Highway Patrol posted the following video on Saturday.
** Hwy 128 Major Injury Collsion**At approximately 12:55 pm, CHP H-32 responded with Napa County Fire, Cal Fire, AMR Napa County, REACH Air Medical Services and Saint Helena Fire to a report of a head on collision on Hwy 128 near Chiles Pope Valley Road. Upon the arrival of the first fire fighters at the scene a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) was declared. CHP H-32 and REACH landed near the scene at an established landing zone. REACH transported one patient to the Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital as CHP H-32 transported another to the Queen of the Valley Hospital. AMR transported the rest of the patients to various Napa County Hospitals. The Napa CHP Office is the investigating agency. Footage by CHP Air-37 who was overhead assisting Napa CHP.

A Twitter user who claims to have witnessed the participating supercars had something to say about their driving behavior.
The @RobbReport Supercar drivers at Meadowood this weekend should adopt. I was cycling on the trail and have never seen such craziness. Easy to track the vehicles…they all had RR license plates. @CHP_Napa Next year get a room (or track day)!
