Would have seen the whole lot only I decided to walk back up the stage from that junction! Car doesn't look too badly damaged, but I'd doubt Timmy would park up and walk away, must have damaged wishbone/suspension

yeah,you cant really make it out from that picture but back axle was bent,massive chunks taken out of the right hand side rims and it looked like the wishbone was hanging down alright.
Just not nice to see €350,000+ worth of machinery abandoned at the side of the stage

yea its the same shaped at the s9 and 11 with the carbon fibre exposed. That looks like an s7 or 8 spoiler, must have damaged or lost it in an earlier excursion.

When he went through the there first time was it there he damaged the back right hand side and lights - and needed the new spoiler ? I was there the second time when it went totally wrong - i looked under it and couldn't see that the back axel was bent unless one winger you herd from someone else ? I was talking to Tim after we lifted the car in off the road and asked him was there something happened him earlier in the stage (as they were heading for nearly been down 15 sec to Eugene ) and he told me he took too soft a tyre compound and the tyres went off ! - no grip !

Running an un-homologated part then-could have been excluded from the results had he finished the event and someone decided to make an issue of it-better to run with nothing on the back than an illegal part-big fine too=possibly
