Holy fuck.

Having already lost one really good mate just 8 weeks ago, now this too.

And such an innocuous incident..... if you look up ahead, another car has a minor bingle and the yellow flag starts waving. All Allan did was have a wheel on the painted edge at got caught out paying attention to the accident up ahead.

So gutted right now. I've lost more than a friend. he was an inspiration in the true sense, an incredible teacher and sharer of information, a playboy that idolised James Hunt for all his good and bad habits, an idiot, a genius, a gullible dumbass and an annoying bastard.

He was married and became a father only recently too.

It's all so fucked.

I wasnt sure if posting that youtube was ok

it would appear as though he got on the paint, had no grip, opposite lock to catch it, but then the paint ran out and he got a massive amount of grip suddenly?

I was chatting to someone just now who said its the equivalent of a 'high side' on a bike

Meeting women on the Internet? Remember, the more similarities u “magically” have, & the more she agrees with u, the fucking crazier she is.

that's pretty much it in a nutshell.

The accident up ahead contributed to an extent as it drew his attention, but he's had a tiny mistake cost him the ultimate price.

It looks like there'll be some kind of service for Allan here for those that would like to attend. PM me for now but I might put more info up once details are ready if needed.

Very sad news indeed. It was hard to tell but it looked like he would have gone head on into tyres but how did he rip off both doors... I spoke they're only lightweight doors that are lightly hung on...

It appears the accident was so big it moved the wall back as far as the trees behind it, so the trees influenced the energy absorption.
