As most of you are probably aware (news travels fast) the corsa died today, not sure of the damage but heres some pics of the paint work:




happened with jamie driving, my boss, down the curvy bit (crainer curves?) at donnington, just unlucky really, engine has done 11k now so its time was near done

went thud, dropped oil over tyres track etc, we lost it rather specially at 110mps ish, ended up on the grass, a scooby on slicks following at a fast pace lost it on my oil and skimmed past, lucky escape for all really!

anyway on the tow back to the pits we have decided on a new engine spec, watch this space for more pics and development on the new engine

wish me luck
