Every competitors worse nightmare - hit in the trailer

Travelling up to Curborough on last Friday pm on the M25/M3 junction I had a RTC while stationary. A lady in a Honda CRV drove (at some speed) into the back of my trailer causing extensive damage to the Phoenix and wrecking the trailer.

The ladies insurance company has admitted liability and my assessor has decided the trailer and racecar are a total loss. As this is classed as goods in transit and not a vehicle I'm pursuing the insurers for the full value of replacements for the car and trailer totalling some £53K according to my assessor. My Range Rover tow hook is bent as well so will need replacing and the Phoenix has chassis damage as well as requiring a complete, custom body.

Sad times.

Heard about this on Saturday Jeff- A real bummer- glad you didn't get any body panels bent yourself...
As for this season- if you didn't have any bad luck you wouldn't have had any luck at all! Hope to see you out before long.
best wishes Clive

Thanks Clive, hopefully the her insurance will pay out and I will be back out in something more suitable for SL to give a run for your money.

Sorry to hear about this Jeff, I hope you manage to get everything sorted without too much grief from their insurers.
