Shine on you crazy driver – Floyd daughter flips car
HER father is a motor racing fanatic who recently diced with death at the wheel of a £3 million (R49.22m) supercar.
And now Holly Mason, daughter of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, also walked away from a dramatic crash this week.
Mason flipped her pink Austin A35 twice as she took a corner at 80km/h during a practice at the Silverstone track in England.
The 42- year- old, who is married to Scottish racing driver Marino Franchitti, was pulled out of the £40 000 car unscathed.
Witness Barry Pomfret said: “The car rolled over twice and came to a halt on its side, so it was fairly dramatic. It would have been like being in a washing machine. The medical team was on the scene quickly.
“They had to bring the car back on to its four wheels before getting Holly out.”
It is understood Mason was practising for next month’s Silverstone Classic, an annual event showcasing historic cars.
In March, her father – the only member of Pink Floyd to have appeared on all 15 of the band’s studio albums – had a scare when his McLaren F1 GTR skidded off a track.
Nick Mason, 73, said: “What matters is that she’s okay. I’m hardly in a position to criticise – I did a lot more damage to the McLaren. We are seriously considering taking up snooker as a family sport!’ – Daily Mail
