I was standing right near the corner it happened on.

Was quite a high speed roll, infact it apparently bounced straight over the tire wall.

One of the ZCars lot got the start of the crash on video, it looked like the big rover hit his rear end sending him into a spin (but could't be sure)

Hope he is ok.

From what I saw at cascades, his back end stepped out on him on the exit, but the big Rover sd1 was right on his tale and giving him what for, I saw the back end of the mini step out, but couldn't figure out if the rover pushed him or not. For the way the mini could carry the speed through the bend Im not sure if the rover could have bumped him...?

Hope he is ok

I was at cascades also but was looking at knickerbrook on the other corner. Turned around I saw a mini landing in the pond. One of the weirdest things ive seen in a long time! Hope your alright if you read this and get your car sorted!

ive spoken to rob today a bit bruised and battered but basically ok
he will be fine in a few days and then look to sorting the car out
he did get a bit out of shape on the exity of cascades and the rover just clipped him because he lost forward momentum
a very unfortunate accident but thank god he is ok
must have been a bit of a surprise landing in stone cold water after riding round at high speed for a few miniutes suddenly it all goes quiet and its freezing cold
luckily he was not aware of what was happening after the first roll and cant remember getting out of the car
the roll cage did its job although his crash helmet took a big hit
from my point of view ive seen hundreds of cars roll over in the grasstrack racing and im always thankful to see the driver walk away from it its a massive responsibility building high performance cars because one day a customer will test the quality of your fabrication and welding skills all the staff at z cars were keen to pass on their best wishes to rob and im lucky to have a bunch of guys who do care about what they do
look forward to seeing rob out again he was flying before the accident and i guess if the rover hadnt been so close it would have just been a minor twitch and carry on

Saw the crash, start to finish, was very nasty! :dontgetit:

Hope Rob mends quickly.

Dont think his car will mend as quick. Goes to show how strong a good quality zcars cage really is.
