1 door, exhaust, exhaust manifold, front coilover top mount, oil cooler banana'd, 2 bumpers

all repaired for 38 pounds

but dont hit the tyres with the tail hanging out and bounce back onto the track



was fixed for about 15 quid and use of a sledge hammer to square up the wing

was hitting the hay bail not part of the crash? Or is this new "Bail attack sprinting?? "
