Its surface outer layer damage, so it hasn't penetrated the Carbon Fiber which is a good thing. If its deep enough on that outer layer you will need to have to it sanded down and you need to have it clearcoated. Add 3-5 coats to make sure there is no problem. Go to a high quality auto body shop. Since its just clearcoat the difference in pricing between that and a more affordable shop should not be very much.

Same thing happened to mine. Mine wasn't deep enough to penetrate so I wet sanded it with 1500 paper then polished it. Good as new. Re-clearing as mentioned above is the solution if it's too deep to wet sand. But since it'll get re cleared anyway you might as well give wetsanding a shot. Good luck!

^ Very true. Hard to tell how deep it is. If its just a surface scratch like M3FJ had his solution is best. Don't be afraid to wet sand gently. Once you compound/polish it looks perfect.
