Warning light

So, on the way home tonight, came to a nice quiet road and I thought here we go its TURBO time, floored it and straight away lost power and has a yellow 'engine management' light come on and beeping saying 'fault take to workshop', after a mile or two and a lag in power I pulled over and stopped the engine. When I started up it was gone and car seemed back to normal?

Any ideas? Should I be worried?

Any help is appreciated!

Should you be worried? - Yes, until you get a scan done. Any time the engine management light comes on a code will be set that will point your mechanic to the trouble. Get it scanned (VCDS or a dealer)
