Goodwood Moving Motor Show Debuts with Accident
As we reported, one of the ultra-hot vehicles that were to be driven up the Hill today at Goodwood is the front wheel drive Mugen Civic Type R.
It seems that one of the drivers of the hot hatch lost control of the car, crashed into a Jaguar XKR and also hit the oldest Jaguar E-Type still alive (the car was stationary) sending the classic straight into the Nissan stand and then hit the pavilion’s exterior structure, as autocar writes.
Four people were injured in the incident, but it seems that none of them has been badly injured.
"At 12:40 today, an incident occurred within the exhibition hall at the Goodwood Moving Motor Show when a driver of a slow moving car blacked out, lost control of his vehicle and injured four people,” a Goodwood spokesperson was quoted as saying by the aforementioned source.
"None of the four people involved have sustained any major injuries," the spokespoerson added.
The officials at the site immediately evacuated the spectators and opened an investigation, suspending the Ride and Drive part of the event. However, the Goodwood Moving Motor Show was reopened after a while.
The unfortunate event might affect the reputation of the Show, especially as this was the inaugural edition of the auto event. After today’s bump, let’s hope that the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed goes on without any issues.
