    Hope your doing ok today Adam without too many pains.

    That soarer is a fooking heavy thing to tow but glad we got you home in the end.

    I bumped into the skylineowner on our way out, he claimed he didnt see any yellow flags, before he initiated. From what I saw he tried to drift gerrards but the S13 in front was going slow.. because adam had come off :rolleyes: and then when he couldnt drift wide and around the s13, he corrected, lost it and went towards Adam.

    I dont know the guy, only bumped into in for 2 mins as we held up the traffic going out, he spoke about not seeing a flag but he didnt appologise about it, or to adam i think? which was pretty poor.....in fairness tho.. there were ALOT of cars on track at the time....

    The car came off the trailer easier than it went on tho mate ! and dont worry we'll have a crazy weekend at matts and get it sorted. :thumbs:

    i'll agree it was an awquard one, possibly hard to see the flag, possibly 2 many people on track, possibly a slow car in his way... eitherway he should of at least apologized and not made inopropiate comments afterwards

    out of interest what happens in this instance do you both just walk away and say shit happens and try and sort it out your self or is the guy going to pay you some money for fucking your car?

    in theory its everyman for them selves, you go on track and take this risk. the only thing is adam was stationary so no one should of been drifting past him, that put the skyline big time in the wrong BUT theres still not alot adam can do, if the skyline guy has anything about him then he'd help out tho. cant imagine he'd be too happy if it was the other way round and adam wiped him out.

    wonder who's paying adams wage seen as he cant make it to work today....

    It is an awkward one, but the car's infront of the skyline werent drifting for a reason.

    Add into that the fact that two trips had to be done to get the soarer so that was 6 hours of time and diesel money.. The Skyline came and went home on a trailer...

    It is the risk you take though... there was a pretty nasty crash on saturday as well tho.

    Bad times, a reshell is a good call.
    Thats the beauty of having a car without actual big chassis work, swapping to a un-destroyed shell is easy, but a fully caged seam welded tubbed thing would be a nightmare to re-do.
