I've had better weekends.
No injuries or other vehicles, just a very very slippery road it seems.

Saturday morning test drive, before a trip to Dunedin I had planned.
Insurance is under way, and the car's at Mcgregor Motorsport for assessment.
Looks like everything did what it was supposed to, which is nice.
It was rather spinny after the railing caught the front, I'm still a fan of 4 point harnesses...

Nooooo!! Glad you are ok... Lots easier to repair metal than flesh and bone.

Cheers - N

Thanks Neil, I feel the same way.
She should be repaired. Mark reckons if the rear suspension pickups are still straight, it will probably get the same treatment that yellow Mcgregor did some years back. Chop the frame at the footwells, and put on a new front. I'll have to wait until all the insurance gears are turning to be sure what I'm in for. Given I broke both the front wheels, I don't know if I can say for sure that anything north of the firewall is very salvageable. Brand new battery too...

Also, today at work my new pedals and air intake were waiting for me lol. I'll just put those aside for some time in the future...

Glad to hear you are ok! what do you think happened to cause this on what appears to be a straight section of road ?
Sounds like a good excuse for upgrades

I was accelerating, but the traction loss was very easy. I'm thinking fresh rain after a long absence. Looking into getting an LSD if anyone has one laying about...
