The Goodwood Festival of Speed has been home to plenty of expensive crashes and this year was no different as at least five cars met a less than stellar fate.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed has been home to plenty of expensive crashes and this year was no different as at least five cars met a less than stellar fate.

First up, a Nissan GT-R Nismo being driven by Olympian Chris Hoy took a corner to fast and plowed into the five rows of hay stacks. Thankfully, Hoy escaped uninjured and waved to the crowd as he walked away.

An Alfa Romeo 4C also suffered a similar fate but it was going slower and only managed to take out a couple of hay stacks before coming to a rest.

As a refresher, the GT-R Nismo has a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 600 bhp (447 kW) and 481 lb-ft (651 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed sequential dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enabled the car to set a Nürburgring lap time of 7:08.679.
