Then, unfortunately, this happened. It appears as though the Lister wanted into go into the pits, and then the Mass helped speed along that process by hitting him in the rear.

Ouch.

Like any good race car, though, we're sure they'll be repaired and running again in no time.

Mercedes' workshop will take car of the SLS no matter what, and the Jag "will be back racing next year, because it's a 10 million car". Place your bets ladies and gents, but as sad as this is, Goodwood is a full on race and nobody got hurt. Race cars will be race cars.
