Sir Chris Hoy Destroys a GT-R at Goodwood

Hay bales 1 : GT-R 0

Sir Chris Hoy is England's most successful Olympian, a cycling champion, who has decided to have a change of careers and pursue professional motorsports.This week, he was at Goodwood putting a GT-R through its paces, when he experienced a bit of trouble. Shortly into what was looking like a good run, Hoy seems to misjudge a corner, come in too fast, lock up, and understeer into a row of hay bales. After the accident, the British sir seemed unfazed.

He smiles and waves to the audience as he leaves the scene. Thankfully he was uninjured, which is more than we can say for the poor R35. It suffered some extensive front end damage, and the impact was severe enough that the air bags deployed. On a positive note however, the windshield wipers still work.
