Near insurance nightmare during Goodwood Revival

Near insurance nightmare during Goodwood Revival

While most classic car owners keep their priceless collection locked up safe, some actually risk harming their irreplaceable vehicles on the race track. A new video shows a Jaguar E-Type coupe nearly take out a Ferrari 250 GTO during a Goodwood Road & Racing (GRRC) event at the recent Goodwood Revival.

While trying to pass the Ferrari on the inside of a right-hand turn, the Jaguar oversteered causing the rear to come around and nearly smash into the back of the multi-million-dollar prancing horse. The Jaguar did a complete 180 and went to the outside of the track over the narrow strip of grass onto the pit lane.

While no value was given to the E-Type, the 250 GTO is valued at £30 million or approximately $39.7 million USD. Fortunately, both vehicles were unscathed with likely only one ego bruised and a couple pairs of trousers a bit soiled.
