Yeah. I had a passenger at the time and I hit the pass door and quarter panel. I'm glad he's ok more than anything.

Will post pics up when I get a chance. An mx5 span infront of me and a lifted at paddock hill bend. Caused me to spin and I hit him in the gravel. Didn't even counter steer just froze once I see him infront of me.

not so good, but i guess it's the chance you take when tracking a car

did you have trackday insurance at all?

Nope no insurance. Was going to fix it and get back out there but had trouble finding a non rusty car cheap. So selling up and buying a normal car and just getting on really. Have a few fast cars etc track them alittle have fun.

Well with so much regret I'll be breaking this. Crashed the car at brands late December and since then realised I've not got the cash behind me to race a car like this.
All parts available including a damaged shell with cage, or just the cage itself if someone wants it.
Will start a for sale thread but will take some time to get all parts up, so of you are interested in any parts before then please pm me.

With some hope and half a chance I'll be back in an ek9 one day. Has been by far the most fun car I've ever owned and will not be forgotten! This community is also the best I've ever been apart of and wish everyone the best of luck with their cars/lives, I'll still be on here from time to time even once my parts have sold.
Mate,

Sorry to hear this, there was a EK9 rolling shell on ebay going cheap, could you not just swap the parts over?

Jay

Had so many issues trying to get the car back on the track/road, everything I did hit a road block.
I'm out £700 because a breaker on here took my money and refuses to refund me,
Described the shell as rust free and turns up with a 6inch hole in the floor. Sent it back now he refuses to give my money back!

Ah this was a Silver on with CF bonnet & Tailgate etc, think it was £1300.

That sucks man, no surprises considering the phone area code. Hope you get it sorted. Surprised EK0.org is allowing sellers like that on the forum.

What theirs?
That's good to hear, more important that people on here don't get caught out by these guys.
