nasty mate is that the only damage (arch/cracked bumper/scratch)? I did a similar thing the other week locked up on some mud coming into a corner so just whacked the handbrake up and slewed the back end into a bush, destroying my mudflap and pulling the bumper off its mounting on one side. Damn slippery the lanes at the moment :(

all the scratches down my door and quarter t-cuted and polished out. i just need a new bumber and arch my steelie took a hell of a donk, only left a small dent!!! good old steelies

coming over a crest in my favourite lane, (not hanging about) back end twitched right, corrected it and it spun left down the side of a hedge then got it back onto the road after battling with it through the bushes:p

sounds like a brown trouser moment to me mate!!!! especially as it was the old crest issue (see the rallying videos thread!!!) still nothing to major i.e no panel damage

Had a hedge do that to my Astra a couple of months ago, this one was backed up by a very solid fence and smashed the wing mirror off :mad: The owners really should keep more control their hedges to stop them jumping out at unsuspecting motorists :p

As Matt said, every cloud has it's silver lining - you can polish the fuck out of that one mate ;)

its sooo slippery on certain types of surface. Not too bad damage though but it does slow you down a bit momentarily doesnt it. normally for about a day in my case lol. My ax keeps get its arse out on certain corners its soo much fun because im not even doing 30mph when it happens :D just a heavy right foot and a sharp right hand junction and waheey out she slides before either wheelspinning or clutch slipping up the road (damn it)

wernet lift off over steer mate, unlucky the back end jus twitched (more like over correction) but that was only a fragment, but thats all it takes at speed!, carrying to much speed for a start, and wet lane!!cry never mind, we learn from our mistakes

sorry to hear sparks, u got off a bit better than me!! lol Rallye on!
