Well I have done it good and proper this time.

Left Santa Pod after the HKS Series, got onto the A45 and hit the lorry ruts in the road, that sent the trailer viciously to one side and started a major fish tail. The road is down hill and the fish was growing, it was massive and I knew I dare not brake. Suddenly in kicked the 'do what everyone says and accelerate', so I did!!

The fish grew and grew and grew, I still dare not brake, I was well and truly in the shit. Then traction was completely gone and the trailer was leaving big black marks from one side of the road to the other until it suddenly just turned me sideways and smashed into the central barrier throwing the Drag-R off the front right hand corner of the trailer. Luckily my Stagea was so far left at this point it missed me and landed on it's wheels up against the armco.

No one was hurt, the trailer is written off the Drag R is battered and the Stagea is bashed in on one corner. :puke:

Anyone got a few grand they don't want???

F**K !!!

Very bad luck....just how bad does the damage seem to the Drag R?
Main thing is your ok & no one got hurt!
I won't know for a few days. It's been taken to a secure compound for now until I can find someone to fix it and make it like new again. I would guess mainly panel damage, front wings, front and rear bumpers, splitter, intercooler, door?, but one rear wheel looks like it is at the wrong angle???

Will update when I know more.

F**ks sake!!!

Sad reading.
Sincerely hope it is "just" cosmetic damage.

At least no other cars involved.
