Vintage Ford Mustang Has A Crash At Goodwood Members’ Meeting: Video

Sponsored Links

There’s nothing quite like a good race between vintage cars – until, of course, one or more is involved in a wreck, rendering it just so much twisted metal and ruined vinyl.

Thankfully, nothing so macabre occurs in the video above.

Goodwood Road & Racing just hosted its 75th annual Members’ Meeting, which was chock full of charming, exhilarating classic car racing, as always. This included the Pierpont Cup race, whose field was populated by big, V8 muscle: Falcons, Galaxies, Barracudas, and of course, a few early Ford Mustang examples.

The video seen here was taken onboard the No. 6 Ford Mustang, driven by Steve Soper, and depicts an exciting track battle with the No. 9 Ford Mustang of Craig Davies. Numerous times throughout the 5-minute clip, Soper catches Davies in the corners, but can’t quite manage to find an opening. At about the 4:12 mark, he gets his chance, and moves to overtake Davies on the inside of the turn, but the two cars touch, sending Soper right out into the field.

Our condolences for the damage to Goodwood’s well-manicured lawn, but this crash certainly could have been a lot worse.

Check it out.
