While the racing and motorsport events come with a lot of excitement, they also have their own set of risks and disappointments. The famous annual hill climb event at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England is no different. Two rare Jaguar racing models crashed during the famed hill climb track event over the weekend.

The first accident took place during the final day of the event and involved a rare Jaguar XJR-12D Group C Le Mans race car with British racing driver Justin Law behind the wheels. In a video footage posted on YouTube, the driver seems to have lost control of the vehicle while speeding through the Flint Wall section of the hill climb. The vehicle's rear bangs into the thick hay fencing and the car spins from the impact.
