    Can I just say a massive thanks to everyone who helped me out today when I flipped my car, Gordon at G-Tec, Gav, Luke, the tangerine scooby guy.........I dont know all your names but I really appreciate all the help I got and any time any of you need a favour just let me know.........I've got a bit of a headache now but I think I'll survive. The car is a wreck but I have sourced a new shell from Polo at SB Automotive so a massive thanks to him too.....hopefully I'll be back competing and scring the shit out of the marshals again soon.

    P.S. If anyone has any vids or photos get them up!!!!! lol

    Glad you're alright though. Not often that people mention themselves flipping on here!

    At the end of the day it happens mate, I probably could have done the same thing another 99 times and not have flipped it but I managed to hit that unlucky 1 in a hundred........The way I'm looking at it is its time to build it bigger and better than before as everything underneath seems ok so far so Im hoping its a simple re-shell.

    Still want those pics and vids up though :D

    Unlucky mate, I was the one who had a smash in the black BMW, I thought my damage was bad.

    But the 1st thing I heard you say when u came into the brief was "im goin to crash today" .
