See Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason crash £3m vehicle

Daniel Zuchnik/WireImageFounding Pink Floyd drummer and noted auto enthusiast Nick Mason was involved in a scary crash during a race of vintage sports cars on Sunday in West Sussex, U.K., but the 73-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer luckily walked away unscathed. Alright, you're allowed to shed a couple of tears, because I sure did.

The 73-year-old Pink Floyd drummer lost control while on a demonstration lap at the circuit near Chichester during the 75th Members' Meeting weekend.

The 73-year-old rocker, who is an experienced racing auto driver, lost control while at the wheel of a McLaren F1 GTR supercar while on a demonstration lap at the famous Goodwood Circuit on Sunday (19Mar17).

While taking laps, it looks like Mason slid off of the track and drove directly into a wall. Mason, who was driving at a low speed when he hit the wall, is said to have endured the wreck without injury; as the report puts it, he "got out of the vehicle and was walking around afterward".

Mason's F1 GTR is chassis 10, which was built as a test and development auto before being used in 1996 Le Mans pre-qualifying, however it didn't race.

Mason and the other drivers all made it through their accidents unscathed. While most owners of an F1 might garage it for years on end, Mason, being an experienced driver, knows that cars like this need to be taken out and driven the way they were built to.
