So that's why I need I roll cage! :shock:

The thought did cross my mind when I went off @ Anglesey on the sharp left at the end of the 95 mph coastal section. Luckily JO JASON stopped spinning before the grass section leading to the next corner........... or that A110 roll could have been me. :oops:

A110s are top of my list of favourite cars but they are quite expensive to buy and crash..... :cry:

A very slow corner but approached at a very high speed. Looks to me like something broke as he braked from what would have been maximum speed.

Bit of a fluke actually because if the car hadnt have hit the kerb exactly side on it would probably would not have rolled, wrong position at the wrong time.
