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.
