Nissan GT-R NISMO driven by Olympian Chris Hoy crashes at Goodwood [video]

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is known for crashes during the iconic 1.16 mile hillclimb and this year’s event was no exception.

One of the hardest crashes this year involved a Nissan GT-R Nismo, driven by Olympian Chris Hoy, who took one of the corners a bit too fast and drove off the course into the five rows of hay stacks.

The hay stacks did their work and Olympic champ got out of the car with no injuries and probably just a little bruise on his ego.

The GT-R Nismo with a 600bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 and 481 lb-ft of torque linked to a six-speed sequential dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive setup is an impressive car on the track, but as you can see it does take a skilled driver to keep it on the road.
