Pink Floyd’s drummer has crashed his multi-million dollar supercar. Nick Mason crashed his McLaren F1 GTR on the Goodwood Circuit on Sunday.
While Mason was not hurt in the accident, his rare and expensive supercar would require more than just some TLC. The McLaren F1 GTR took part in the GT1 demonstration on Sunday. Sadly, it was wrecked on its parade lap.
Nick Mason regularly attends these events. He is an avid fan of historic racing himself and loves to take his McLaren F1 GTR on track.

Th event was part of the 75th Goodwood Members’ meeting which was attended by exotic car owners from around the UK.
The Mclaren F1 GTR won the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours race. Until 2005, McLaren built 28 F1 GTR race cars. Only a handful of them were sold to private owners and these were converted for street use. However, even with the extensive modifications, the street-legal F1 GTRs were more like race cars for the road. Chassis #10 was the first to be converted for road use and was sold to Nick Mason.
Of course, these cars don’t come cheap. In 2004, an F1 GTR was sold for approximately $4 million.
