In a bizarre story out of England, a Honda Civic Mugen R took out two Jaguars at a static exhibit at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, injuring a Jaguar XKR and the oldest surviving Jaguar E-Type in existence.
The circumstances behind the accident are a little suspect. Some reports state that the driver was revving the engine of the running car, while the official statement from Goodwood officials read as follows.
“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,” said a Goodwood spokesperson.
“None of the four people involved have sustained any major injuries and have not been hospitalised. They have been treated on-site as a precaution.”
Either way, we’re left scratching our heads. If the vehicle was being hooned, then the revving story doesn’t hold water, since the clutch would have to be released for the car to go anywhere. The “blacking out” story is a little too vague as well and sounds like something is being suppressed.
