1924 Bugatti T13 crashes at Prescott Speed Hill Climb, driver goes for a beer afterwards [video]

The owner of a rare 1924 Bugatti T13, worth around £250,000 crashed his classic car last Sunday during the Prescott Speed Hill Climb at Winchcombe in Gloucestershire.

As you can see from the video and pictures below the crash was pretty bad as the car ended upside down. Luckily the 56 year old Edmund Burgess got away safely and reportedly decided to relax by going for a beer immediately after the accident.

Smart man. Why go emotional and be upset about something that is already behind. He is safe and that’s what matters.

The accident happened because of a brake failure, and Burgess is already looking repair the T13 and race it again within the next two months.
