Here is a pic of my Westfield SE after it had a coming together with the tyre wall at Castle Coombe.
I can see both the pics ?
I think this will need a new chassis or at least putting on a jig to make sure everything is square.
Oh no did you get out alright?
stuvy Yes I walked away ok. Lesson learnt DONT wear a watch when racing my only injury was where the winder for my watch hit the back of my hand.
Floor pan is goosed as well
I was just thinking of a rear ended kit car that was built using the firewall as a datum and the wall was on the wonk... it didn’t drive straight to say the least
ouch! hopefully not your first outing
I did something similar with a Caterham 7 while trying to do donuts on a Palmer Sports track day at the Bedford Autodrome. Probably lower speed, definitely bent the suspension, not sure about the chassis. I just handed it back, the steering did whip a bit but no injuries other than my pride
Nope it was a test day after rectifying a fuel starvation problem but far more expensive to fix than the fuel problem LOL
Not great....but at least you got the pleasure of crashing it yourself....mine was done for me by my neighbour!
On the up side me thinks a new project build is brewing
Just repair it. After all, its only made out of 16 gauge 25mm sq box section.
Chop out the bent bits and weld in new.
Here's my chassis I made from scratch.....
@Anthony Spencer I was going to put a like, but I don't so have these instead
But at least you weren't injured [other than pride?] so have this
Top tip, keep a spare for when you run out of talent
Having only just spoke via pm about this
@Anthony Spencer might be interested in one if there for sale @8ob
By the time you strip it, make a jog youl be able to buy a chassis and redo it quicker and cheaper
Bit of a shame but same as everything else.
You know the risks when starting off,
I do motorcycle trackdays and know that a crash could be a split second away,
Glad you are uninjured and only metalwork damaged. (A back handed way of saying it could have been a lot worse)
Either rechassis or repair chassis in my eyes.
You don't need a jig, but it will need stripping right down to gain access to the chassis.
All bodywork off and clever use of a tape measure and string.
They look like locost?
How did you guess Matt !!!!
Have managed to get another chassis so will stop posting and resume posting once everything is stripped out and the car rebuilt.
Then will post as the damaged chassis is repaired
