we reckon about 100mph! ?

most of the damage was underneath. it twisted the engine clean off its mounts, snapped a wishbone, bent suspsension, bent subframe, etc etc
cosmetically, it was damage from front bumper to rear bumper. seems like ages ago Smile

yea, it's all in 1 piece:

I have everything crossed that they don't change the calendar dates JT as would be awesome to see you and the car going round especially if we can get a few of us on track!!!
